Subject: Problems Caused by Open Manholes

Sir/Madam

Through the columns of your esteemed daily, I want to draw the attention of the Municipal Commissioner of the area of Civil Lines Extension Chanakyapuri, regarding the problem of three open manholes in the main road leading to our locality.

The open manholes have already caused several accidents in the short period of four months, most of which occurred after dark. The situation worsens during the rainy season. Even a slight down pour causes the manholes to overflow and flood the main road.

The manholes are a breeding ground for various germs and diseases, which are a threat not only to kids but adults as well. Moreover, the stench coming from the open manholes is unbearable.

Due to the above mentioned problems, residents of my locality and all the neighbouring localities are facing a lot of inconveniences day in and day out.

I have written to the municipal corporation many times regarding the issue, requesting them to cover the manholes. However, nothing has been done about it yet.

The problem can be easily dealt with by timely action and regular monitoring. I wish that the concerned authority takes a note of the situation and takes remedial actions at the earliest.

Thank you

Yours sincerely
Kamini Kaushal
