CUTTACK: Five days of festivities have left behind heaps of garbage and stench in the city. Tonnes of flowers, food packets, plastic bottles and polythene packets were found littered on Friday. The stretch from Devigada ghat (where the deities were immersed) to Khannagar resembled a garbage dump after the immersion.
 
People complain that civic authorities are not taking any steps to either clean the river bank or the streets.
 
What has made the matter worse is that city will celebrate Id-ul-zoha on Saturday. "The city is filled with garbage and filth. The streets are emanating stench. How will we celebrate Eid-ul-Zuha in such an atmosphere? asked Sheikh Rehman of Sheikh Bazaar.
 
The condition of river Kathajodi is equally bad as over 150 idols were immersed in it. "Immersion of idols leads to river pollution but civic authorities are not at all worried about cleaning the bank. Hordes of people also depend on the river for their daily need of water," said Satya Narayan Das of Purighat.
 
According to the CMC officials the city generates over 320 to 340 metric tonnes of garbage a day. But an excess waste of around 70 to 80 MT has accumulated in the city due to the puja. But CMC officials claimed its sweepers are working overtime to clean the city. "We are cleaning the Muslim-dominated areas on a priority basis for Eid-ul-Zuha," said Saumendra Ghose, Mayor , Cuttack.
 
Cuttack collector said steps are being taken to clean the Kathajodi river and Devigada. "I have instructed the CMC officials to clean the river bank and pull out remnants of idols and polythene from the river," said Girish SN, the Cuttack collector.
