Ward No 60
I am writing this letter on the behalf of residents of our locality to draw your kind attention towards some problem faced by residents of our locality. The roads of our locality are in very bad shape. Pits and ditches on the roads are causing inconvenience to residents. Also, Roads are not cleaned and dusted on a daily basis. Several manholes are uncovered. This can be fatal for pedestrians. Drains are also not desilted regularly.
Many street lights are not functioning for a long time. Many parts of our locality remain in darkness. The incident of crime has also increased. People do not find it safe to venture out in the darkness. Chain snatching, theft, and burglary have become the new normal. I, therefore, request you take all necessary steps to solve the problem faced by the resident.
