Splendid Nagar
Hyderabad
20 February, 2010.
The Municipal Chairman
Municipality of Hyderabad
Hyderabad
Sir,
I am a resident of Splendid Nagar, Hyderabad and I wish to bring to your
attention a grievous problem faced by the residents of my locality.
There are only five buses plying in the route 255 from Splendid Nagar to
Glamour Street Cross Roads which is not adequate for this busy route. The
inadequate number of buses in this route is causing dire difficulties to the
residents of the Splendid Nagar as they solely depend on the buses in this
route to arrive at Glamour Street Cross Roads, a centre of educational
institutions and business center.
The students from our locality find it difficult to reach in time at
their school or college. Moreover, the lack of sufficient buses in the evening
makes them return home only after the nightfall.
