How rotten Howrah’s bus stand is

The Howrah Municipal Corporation must focus on the deplorable condition of the area surrounding the Howrah bus terminus and the auto stand. Heaps of litter are dumped on the main road with things getting worse after a downpour. Vehicles, especially buses and autorickshaws, flout traffic rules all the time. The area is filled with the stench of rotten refuse from the nearby fish market.

Gaps to bridge

While passing through the Dhakuria flyover, I am often alarmed to see people chatting and walking along the edge of the bridge carelessly. The railings, running along the entire length of the bridge, are broken at several places. Children from nearby slums playfully lean on the railings, or fly kites balancing themselves precariously. The boundary wall should be repaired without further delay. With the tremendous rush of pandal-hoppers in this zone, one can’t rule out the possibility of accidents during the Pujas.
