German Ambassador Points Out Dumpsites in Islamabad
German Ambassador of Pakistan, Martin Kobler, who is very active on Twitter – to post pictures of his adventures around Pakistan or just Tweet about his opinions – shared a picture of a spot in Islamabad that had become a dumpsite of garbage. His recent tweet resulted in the suspension of two Capital Development Authority (CDA) officials by the government.
Mr. Kobler even named and identified the area as F7/4 street 56 of Islamabad, while pointing towards a dump of garbage in the picture above.
He wrote in his tweet, “Going past a road, there is scenic locality around, but at a point in F7/4 street 56 of Islamabad I spotted a heap of garbage. The trash could not be dumped this way. This could become a breeding ground for dengue mosquitoes and hence causing health hazards. What can we do about it?”
سڑک سے گزرتے ہوے Islamabad# میں جہاں خوبصورت جگہ نظر آتی ہے وہیں جابجا کوڑے کے ڈھیر بھی جیسے کہ F7/4 گلی 56میں۔ ٹھوس کوڑا اس طرح سے ہر جگہ نہیں پھینکا جاسکتا۔یہ ڈینگی اور دیگر مضرِ صحت اثرات کا سبب بنتا ہے! کیا کیا جاسکتا ہے؟ pic.twitter.com/5JimvTefth
