Life and Work in Jeedimetla: A Montage

Published By: Medico Friend Circle | Published Date: November, 01 , 2015

The workers have to put up with poor housing and living conditions that cramp and disrupt their family lives. There is no government plan to house these workers when industrial areas like in Jeedimetla are planned. Workers are forced to stay close to industries exposed to hazardous gases and polluted water. With no check on the pollutants released by these industries in air, water and land the workers staying in the area have to suffer. Workers report that during night, especially summers when they sleep on the roof, they can smell foul odors as some industries release harmful gases in the dead of night.
