Through your esteemed news paper I want to draw attention of concerned authorities towards the problem of poor sanitation and garbage maintenance.

This is the general problem of few areas of the Karachi city. But we the liaquatabad people are facing it a bit extra. Corporation people come irregularly to collect the garbage in our area. Sometimes garbage is not taken away for 2 to 3 days. To get rid of the garbage in front of the houses people throw the garbage bags across the street. As a result of poor sanitation and garbage maintenance population of stray dogs has increased in the street. These stray dogs are fond of opening garbage bin bags and the garbage is scattered all over the street. Most of the time these are choked and one can feel bad smell in the air. This is shear carelessness of the municipal corporation. I expect that you will understand the gravity of the problem, kindly provide some space in your newspaper.
