Through the columns of your esteemed daily, I would like to draw the attention of the Municipality regarding the wretched condition of the Gandhi Nagar Road.

Sub: Poor condition of the roads in our locality.
Through the columns of your esteemed daily, I would like to draw the attention of the Municipality regarding the wretched condition of the roads leading to our locality.
This is an important road leading to various hospitals, schools and office but unfortunately, the authorities are not concerned about the deplorable condition of the road. The roads are broken here and there with several pits taking a toll on the daily lives of the people. The poor condition of the road had been responsible for several accidents in the past two months. Heaps of construction materials on either side of roads contribute to extreme dust pollution. Adding to all these challenges low street light made it harder for motorist and pedestrians to access the road during the night.
I request the concerned authorities to look into the matter with urgency.

Sub: Poor condition of the roads.
Through the columns of your esteemed daily on behalf of the residents of Kunj Vihar I would like to draw the attention of the concerned authorities towards the poor condition of the road.
Last month the corporation had dug the roads near our locality to repair the water pipelines. Unfortunately, the roads have not been properly repaired since then. The heaps of garbage on side of the roads has attributed to regular congestion. Besides pedestrians, motorists face a lot of problems during the late hour. As monsoon is approaching we assume the problem may get aggravated making the accident-prone.
We have made numerous appeal to the governing body but no concrete action has been taken. Before the onset of the monsoon, the problem needs to be solved.
