Subject: Unhygienic conditions of railways
Through the columns of your esteemed newspaper, I would like to draw the attention of the General Manager, Southern Railways, to the prevailing unhygienic conditions of the Southern Railways.
Also, they contaminate the food. Apart from this, small children fear such insects, due to which people suffer much inconvenience during their journeys.
I would request the authorities to look into the matter and put stricter rules in place. They must ensure the use of insecticides at regular intervals so as to maintain proper hygiene levels in the trains. Also, proper cleanliness and hygiene practices will reduce the risk of further infestation.
