They said that the Minister Ponnam Prabhakar had instructed Collector Pamela Satpathy and Municipal Commissioner B Srinivas to take all measures to avoid spread of garbage fire and inconvenience to the people due to the smoke.

On this occasion, Mr Anjan Kumar launched a scathing attack on local legislator Gangula Kamalakar, Mayor Y Sunil Rao, former MP B Vinod Kumar and also Karimnagar MP Bandi Sanjay Kumar for not taking any measures for the shifting of the garbage dumping yard from the outskirts of Karimnagar town to other location to avoid pollution of Manair river water bodies and also fast growing Karimnagar town.

Flaying the BRS and BJP leaders for claiming of securing Smart City project to Karimnagar town, the Congress leader alleged that the BRS leaders have misutilised the Smart City funds without any vision and destroyed entire Karimnagar town by converting the wide roads into narrow roads and relaying already laid roads, street lights, traffic islands etc.

He also flayed the BRS leaders for not taking up bio-mining the garbage yard in spite of taking up tenders. He demanded that the MCK authorities should take measures for generating power by using the garbage. The Congress leader also demanded the MCK authorities to deploy two fire tenders at the spot and adequate staff to monitor and check garbage fires.
