By Ram Kinkar Singh: The Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) has clarified that there are no plans to establish a new landfill at RK Puram. MCD said: “It has been discovered that an auto rickshaw operating in the RK Puram assembly constituency is using the public announcement system to spread misleading information regarding the municipality.”

This is a false and malicious public announcement alleging an intention to build a dump near Bhawar Singh camp at RK Puram, he added.


According to the aforementioned public notification, MCD had planned to build a landfill at Bhawar Singh Camp in RK Puram. People have been urged to gather there on October 28, 2022 to protest against the proposed dump that would be built there. The company would like to point out how absolutely false and malicious such a public statement is. The Company does not plan to build a landfill in RK Puram Assembly Constituency or anywhere else in Delhi.

The health inspector filed a complaint with SHO asking them to file an FIR against the criminal and stop spreading such harmful and false information about the company.

The Delhi civic body is dedicated to serving the general welfare and exerts all its efforts while making the most of its resources. He wants to reassure residents of RK Puram that there are no plans to build a landfill there or anywhere else in Delhi, he said.
