Akanksha Shruti started this petition to Jharkhand government and Ranchi Municipal Corporation

Today (2/04/2021), some municipal corporation workers set fire to the leaf litter and bushes in my neighborhood. They did so in order to "manage" the waste and told my father that they were doing it in adherence to the permission they were granted by the municipality. Singeing some of my beautiful plants, filling the surroundings with smoke and ash.

Are we not creating enough pollution already? Should we burn what can naturally decompose and enrich our soil, generate bio gas if we take a little time to dig compost pits and dispose these wastes safely and in  a more productive way? Telling people to be responsible with their waste generation and management falls flat if the governing bodies themselves display such an irresponsible countenance. In a time where clean energy is scarce such a waste of possibilities (bio gas) and on top of that releasing all that sequestered carbon back into the atmosphere is a pile of mistakes.

Pollution and environment safety is not a distant nuisance occurring in the periphery of our world that we need not bother with, it's right now and here. Please sign this petition and help me bring this shortsightedness on their part to the attention of the government of Jharkhand and Ranchi municipal corporation.
