Subject: Complaint against bad condition of roads in Dharavi.
I have been the resident of the above mentioned area for the last twenty years. The people here are all educated and go to work and children go to school. I would like to bring your notice that the roads in this area are terrible. Large and small roads are all uniformly riddled with potholes; in many places, entire roads haven dug up. More than that many roads were fully filled with illegal parking of trucks. It becomes very difficult to even walk specially during the rains. Not only this even the street lights are so poor, that it becomes very difficult for people to walk or take out their vehicles during late in evening.
One must be aware that how irresponsible is to park vehicles like trucks in the residential area. It has led to a multiple of problems. Many vehicles break down very often and there has been a distinct increase in road mishaps. Hence I request you to consider it and through your newspaper, I want to make one request to the concerned authority to take strict action against it. Also to consider this matter as important and park the trucks in some other nonresidential areas.
I shall be obliged if you publish my letter in your newspaper so that it catches the attention of the Councilor of our ward and an urgent action is taken.
