    Stagnation of rain water on roads. It damage roads and create difficulties for general public. Nallas built along the roads are filled with plastic throw away materials, bricks and mud. Not cleaned . Please clean before the rains and also please collect immediately from the place (it is seen that the mud from clean malls remain there and it smell foul and create pollution for many days). Now again animals are seen on roads create hindrance for drivers and cause accidents. Please check.
