Due to the massive fire that broke out at the Ghazipur landfill site in Delhi since Sunday evening, the local people living nearby complained of difficulty in breathing. Khoda Colony, Vaishali, Indirapuram areas of Ghaziabad are located around the Ghazipur landfill site. Local people are facing a lot of problems due to the poisonous smoke coming out of this fire.

Local people living in Vaishali area of Ghaziabad said that we are facing this problem since 1990. People living nearby often suffer from diabetes, BP, thyroid and eye irritation. Elderly people and even small children have been facing these problems for many years. School students are also in bad shape due to the smoke coming out of this fire.
