Ugly Dustbins At The Sukhna Lake To Be Changed Very Soon

As per the UT Administration, the UT administration’s architecture wing has submitted the designs of the dustbins which will be installed at the Sukhna Lake. They have further sent a letter to the civic body for installing the dustbins at the Sukhna Lake. An official of the UT Administration said that the dustbins look ugly and they also don’t serve the purpose. The dustbins installed at the Sukhna Lake are of no use as dustbin’s lid flies off whenever there’s a normal breeze. When the lid flies, the garbage comes out resulting in a mess. The monkeys also open the garbage lid easily and further start throwing garbage at the lake. Hopefully, the dustbins at the Sukhna Lake will be replaced with better-looking dustbins and the lake will be garbage free.

Sukhna Lake, one of Chandigarh’s beautiful attractions has a lot of things to do. People at Sukhna Lake can enjoy boating, have delicious food at CITCO cafeteria, go for a camel ride and a lot more. But the Sukhna Lake, Chandigarh has been facing a lot of problems lately. Sukhna Lake might go dry by June 30, 2017, was a major blow to the UT Administration and now the Chandigarh Heritage Committee has raised questions over the lake’s cleanliness.
