Residents of Bengaluru’s Electronic City Phase 2 on Sunday started a tweetstorm demanding to shut down the solid waste management plant located in their neighbourhood due to the regular stench and pollution it has been causing. Despite numerous complaints to the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike and (BBMP) other agencies like the Karnataka State Pollution Control Board, the residents said there has been no improvement in the situation over the years. They said the stench is affecting the health and well-being of residents.

With hashtag #ShutDownEcitySWMPlant, the tweets tagged Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa, Deputy CM Dr Ashwath Narayan and BBMP Administrator Gaurav Gupta, among other authorities.

Pointing out that the waste plant has been producing toxic air, polluting water and causing severe stench, the residents also called out the solid waste management (SMW) authorities for not taking any action and no adhering to its own promises of resolving the matter.
