Through this letter, I would like to draw your attention to sewage in my area. The people of our locality are face many difficulties due to the pipeline’s failure in the sewerage system. Monsoon season has started a few days back, our troubles have increased.
We have been facing unhygienic conditions in the house due to the problem of sewage. Due to floods a few days back and now pipe burst, children are facing a lot of difficulties in going to school and breeding ground for flies and mosquitoes and causing many diseases. Life is entirely barren.
Therefore I request you to kindly take this matter seriously as soon as possible and get rid of this problem from us.
Yours faithfully
