Bathinda, May 3
Residents of Model Town 4-5, Green City and Shakti Vihar today staged a protest against the installation of a mobile tower on the top of a shop in their area.
They said if the Municipal Corporation Bathinda and the district administration didn’t stop the work of this mobile tower then they would intensify their protest.
They said this mobile was being installed near the residential area, which was inappropriate.
They claimed that the work of installation was going on secretively due to which it seemed that it was done without any permission from the MCB.
The protesters said the installation of mobile towers in residential areas was a serious health hazard to the people, especially children.
The residents said these towers emitted and received harmful waves and they would not allow their installation at any cost.
It is scientifically proven that such radiations may also cause fatal diseases such as cancer, they added.
