Owing to the MCD employees’ strike, the roads in your area are littered with garbage. Not only the place is stinking but also is a health hazard. As Miki/Manish of 112, Laxmi Nagar, write a letter in 100-120 words to the editor of a local newspaper informing the concerned authorities of the unhygienic conditions and requesting them to take appropriate and necessary action in the matter.

Subject: Littered Roads: A Health Hazard
Owing to the MCD employees’ strike, the roads in our area are littering with garbage. If garbage heaps around in a residential area, they not only present an unpleasant sight but also pose a great health hazard. This is precisely the problem in this part of the capital which I seek to bring to the notice of the concerned authorities through the columns of your reputed newspaper.
Since Rajendra Nagar is a relatively new locality, there are numerous vacant plots, that are being invariably and insensitively used by the public to dump their garbage. The stench in the air is unbearable, not to mention the peril of an outbreak of infectious diseases.
Attempts to counsel the people on the importance of community hygiene are being counter-argued, i.e., that in the absence of proper dumping sites or dustbins, vacant spots are their only option.
It is important that both the public as well as the authorities should take up a collective responsibility to maintain a clean environment and contribute towards the common good.
I hope this letter of mine will awaken the concerned authorities, who, in turn, will take necessary action at the earliest to protect the residents from any epidemic.
