    Rocky Borah from Jail Road, near Press Club, Jorhat 213 Days ago

    Respected sirs, I am Rocky Borah a resident of Jail Road, near Press Club and I wanted to make a complaint regarding plastic wastes burning by "Global Diagnostics", a newly opened medical diagnostics centre. "Global Diagnostics" is right in the middle of a tightly packed residential area(near press club) and they burn their medical plastic wastes in huge quantities in their backyard, due to which the entire neighbourhood gets engulfed by the harmful smoke and even enters our homes, the burning which lasts for 2 3 hrs totally hampers the surrounding environment and our living conditions as we can feel ourselves inhaling the harmful smoke. We, the local residents even after telling them repeatedly in the past to stop burning their plastic wastes here as it affects our living conditions, didnt pay any kind of heed to our requests. So, that only leaves the Jorhat Muncipal Board for us to approach help.So sirs, with high faith and trust on you and the Jorhat Municipal Board, I write to implore you to please consider this matter and solve this issue at the earliest. To give you a slight insight on the matter, I am hereby attaching a few pics of today's(20/9/2018) burning of plastic wastes. With regards, Yours truely, Rocky Borah +917002979079 rockyborah.ku2016@gmail.com Citizen of Jail Road, near Press Club, Jorhat
