The villagers urged that if the BBMP wants to construct such plants, let them do it at Vidhana Soudha. The protesters complained, “Now we are living in toxic environment. Our children's health is spoiled. Why do they not understand It.? Why this village is chosen for dumping Bengaluru's waste?”They also threatened that they will burn out the plant if it is not removed from the place.
