Expressing concern over the sanitation in the area,the High Court asked the administration to take immediate action against those creating nuisance. To explain the practical difficulties faced by the administration,the Deputy Commissioner and Commissioner of the municipal corporation were present.
The Milk Colony was created for those involved in the profession of keeping cattle and selling milk. In 2006,the administration had allowed dairy owners to use the plots for residential purposes. However,not all residents had converted the plots into their residence,as a result of which,those owning cattle dump cow dung in the area allocated for a park.
