Letter to the Municipal Commissioner



The Municipal commissioner,
Coimbatore corporation,
Coimbatore - 641001.


I am living in the second street of Lingapuram in Kovilmedu. The sanitation is very bad here. The roads here are not swept regularly. They are dirty with full of rubbish. The drainage water flows all over the street, especially during the rainy days. There are many pits on the road. They are filled with drainage water. Foul smell arises from it and it is a place for mosquitoes to breed. So, people are often affected by fever. The children are often affected by dengue, malaria, etc.

So, I request you to look into this matter seriously and improve the sanitation in this locality.

Thanking you !

Yours faithfully,

A number of times it was complained to Dy. Commissioner of MCD, Najafgar, New Delhi-43 to clean drains and remove sludge leading to water blockage at several places at Dhansa village, New Delhi-73 towards Lakshi Pond. The dirty water flow over from the drains. But your sanitation employees do not hear anything. Please action may be taken on the defaulter employees of MCD, Najafgarh, so that dirty water could be cleaned from drains.

I'm living in Baghpat road area of Meerut city. Here the drains are blocked and the dirty water is coming out on the roads. This is really unhygienic and creating health issues. Weather is also wet nowadays aiding in breeding germs. So I request to the concerned municipal dept. to take quick action as soon as possible.
