    Sad news for everyone who celebrating new year. We havent learnt enough from any of these diasters. Whole country do not have a proper waste management system and just dumping to a land. Perhaps politicians think they will vanish over the time. Unathorized structurea also another big issue and politicians cannot take a firm decision worrying they will loose next election via DM Android App
