The garbage disposal in the city has become an explosive issue. However, a super-school in the city – one close to Borella – has hit upon a novel method of disposing of the school garbage.

 


The task of removing the waste collected in the class room has been assigned to the children themselves!  Children are placed on a roster for the purpose and every child is required to collect the day’s garbage in a bag when his turn on the roster comes and take it home after school for disposal. 
Children of this school carrying garbage bags along with their school bags are drawing objections and caustic remarks from school van drivers and bus conductors these days, they say.


“The solution to the garbage problem found by the school has aggravated our garbage problem at home,” a highly concerned parent said.  “It’s pity even supposed to be educated people are also resorting to patchwork solutions,” he added.

    We didn't elect this government to have fun and fellowship with friends and pals, resolve this garbage issue immediately. Garbage issue is existing, because either they want some of their pals to make money, or the officials they appointed are totally inefficient friends of theirs. Not at all bothered about the sufferings of the people, enough of those silly jokes and stupid comments, prove at least whether this problem can be solved by the whole government with 2/3 majority

    If a minister sees this news article, he will immediately take action, by banning taking garbage in buses and vans, and let the poor student to take garbage bag and walk all the way home.
