Subject: Mosquito menace is the disturbing livelihood
I am a resident of Bablapur area, ward no. 18, Durgapur Municipal Corporation. This letter to you is intended to let you know the issue of the extreme mosquito problem we are currently facing in our locality.
Our area is a bit crowded and congested among the entire city. Due to this congestion, throughout the year, we face several problems because of mosquitos. Those mosquitos are quite harmless and we are quite used to it. But since the last three months, this problem of mosquitoes has severely increased. No matter if it's daytime or after dark, we are facing extreme mosquito problems. Moreover, these mosquitoes are not quite like harmless ones. These are dark in colour and already some people have fallen sick with fever most likely because of these mosquitos.
So, through his letter, I want to request you to take necessary actions to control this issue. Otherwise, it will just be a matter of time when this mosquito problem will spread across our locality and affect other areas too.

Subject: The monsoon season brings mosquito menace with it
I live in 72A, Bottola road, Uttarpara, which comes under the Hooghly Chinsurah Municipality. I am writing this letter to you today to express my concern over the issue of mosquito-borne diseases we face every year after the monsoon season.
Our area mostly stays mosquito-free throughout the year. But every year as soon as the monsoon season passes, we face severe problems of various mosquito-borne diseases. Last year also many people from our locality have suffered from Malaria and Dengue. 2 of them have even died. As the monsoon season is going to come and pass in the next 2-3 months, we’re being afraid of such mosquito-borne diseases this year too. We have taken all necessary measures required to prevent such diseases. We keep our house clean, don’t let any water get concentrated, and use mosquito nets.
Now I am earnestly requesting you on behalf of the people of this area to take active measures from the municipality whatever is necessary and save us from the upcoming risk.
Question: Your city is recently facing the menace of many mosquito-borne diseases. Write a letter to the municipal commissioner of your area expressing your concern regarding this issue and suggest some suitable measures to control the situation.
Hints: Mosquito-borne diseases have spread- Water stagnation, poor sewage management and lack of public awareness are the reasons- Sewage blocked by hazardous wastes- Need to be addressed immediately- Can launch public awareness campaigns

Subject: Some way forward to mosquito menace of the city
I am a resident of Ghola Kathgola road writing this letter to you to express my grave concern over the issue of various mosquito-borne diseases that many people in our city are suffering from.
For the last few months, our city has been suffering from various mosquito-borne diseases, especially dengue. Our locality is no exception to this as well. The primary reasons behind these widespread diseases are water stagnation in many areas of our city, poor sewage management and most importantly lack of necessary awareness among the people. Many areas of our city stay underwater even after many days of rain. Moreover, a large part of the sewage system is blocked with hazardous wastes like plastics and rocks. This is leading to water stagnation in many areas after every monsoon.
I agree that the municipality is trying their level best to control the situation. But those issues need to be addressed immediately. Regular maintenance of the city sewage is quite necessary. Moreover, the municipality can launch a public awareness campaign to make people aware of the dos and don’ts during such a health crisis.
