கடந்த 3 நாட்களாக பாதாள சாக்கடை அடைப்பு ஏற்பட்டு உள்ளதால்
கழிவுநீர் வெளியேறி இந்த பகுதியில் பரவ தொடங்கி உள்ளது இதனால் வழி பாதையில்
நடபதர்க்கு இடைஞ்சலாகவும் மற்றும் துர் நாற்றம் வீசுவதால் வீட்டில்
இருப்பதற்கும் முடியாத நிலையல் உள்ளோம் இதனால் கொடுமையான நோய்கள் வருவதற்கும்
மற்றும் பரவுவதற்கும் காரணமாக அமையும் ஆகையால் இதனை தக்க நடவடிக்கை எடுத்து
சரி செய்யுமாறு கேட்டு கொள்கிறோம்

இத்துடன் கழ்வுநீர் கசிந்து வீதிகளில் வடியும் புகைப்படங்களை இணைத்துள்ளோம்

இப்படிக்கு 8,வது சந்தில் குடியிருக்கும் வாசிகள்
