This morning, 3rd. Ramadan , I left my house at about 6.50 am for work. I had to pass through the site of the Pasar Ramadan, and.....what a sight !! I have never seen this place so downright filthy !
Used coconuts were piled by the road-side, litter was strewn everwhere, plastic bags, even food were all left on the road or by the roadside !
We had this in previous years but there was always a cleaning contractor working immediately after the breaking of the fast ..... and by 8.00pm the place would be clean except for the stalls---which were acceptable.
But --this morning ? It was unacceptable by any standard. Thats what happend when the holy month of Ramadan has been over-commercialized ! Negligence, greed and carelessness leads to this sorry state. I just hope the local authority would step in and do something. If they are the ones who issued the licence to these food hawkers, then it is their responsibilities to safe guard the cleanliness of the environment !
