In less than 24 hours of the SIKKIM EXPRESS’s CITIZEN REPORTER report on the deplorable condition of the newly constructed Kanchendongza Shopping Plaza or the Lall Bazaar here, the Urban Housing and Housing Department sprung into action and started to clear the complex of all the filth and garbage.

Yesterday’s (May 23) issue of SIKKIM EXPRESS’s CITIZEN REPORTER had brought of light the accumulated garbage in the complex and the health hazards faced by the residents of the area.

The prompt action by the Department is appreciated and this was possible only because of the CITIZEN REPORTER initiative. We only wish that the administration was as quick to respond to other problems faced by the people of Sikkim.
