Poor lighting at MRTS stations

print   ·   T  T  

I frequently travel by train from Indira Nagar to Light House.

I find most of the stations on the way to be poorly-illuminated.

With the stations plunged in darkness, it is difficult for senior-citizens like to me climb the stairs.

Poor illumination makes these stations unsafe for women.

I request the MRTS authorities to take action at the earliest.
