Sir,

Sub: Bad condition of the street lights

Through your daily, I like to bring to the notice of the authorities concerned the bad condition of the street lights in Vellore.

I am Raja. The street lights of my area do not work properly. After it gets dark, moving on the streets is risky. People suffer a lot. Chain snatching and accidents take place every now and then.

And, the other anti-social activities are increasing. I appeal to the concerned authorities in the municipal corporation to investigate the matter and make the street lights functional again.

I hope you will give space to my voice in your esteemed daily.

Thank you.

Yours faithfully,

Raja.
