LETTER TO THE EDITOR
15th April 2016
The Siliguri Times
Subject: Inadequate and bad quality of water supply.
Through the columns of your esteemed newspaper, I would like to draw the attention of the civic authorities to the bad quality and inadequate supply of tap water in our locality.
It is unfortunate that the local civic authorities do not take care to provide the citizens with even the basic amenities such as proper and adequate water supply. In our locality, water is supplied only for three hours in the morning. For the rest of the day the taps remain dry. Also, the quality of supplied water is poor. It is unhygienic and contaminated. There have been cases of water borne diseases like diarrhoea and dysentery. It is highly expected that these diseases may break out in form of epidemic if the problem is not properly addressed.
It is expected that instead of ignoring the issue, the authorities concerned will take immediate steps to ensure supply of adequate and good quality of water in our locality so that we citizens are able to live a disease free and stress free life.
