Cover manholes

Uncovered manholes pose risk to motorists along the busy Vayalur Road near the Kumaran Nagar bus stop. There have been instances of two-wheeler riders skidding at the spot and injuring themselves. The manholes need to be covered properly at the earliest by the civic body to safeguard precious lives.

Passengers careless

Bus services have resumed, but despite the threat of COVID-19 infection persisting, most passengers do not take care to wear masks properly or follow social distancing norms. Face masks must be worn by both conductor and driver unfailingly. Bus conductors must be advised not to use their saliva while tearing out tickets and undertaking money transaction with passengers.

Restore garbage bins

The old system of keeping garbage bins at vantage spots has to be implemented immediately. Else, hoteliers, shopkeepers and other vendors would dump wastes at places of their choice, particularly in vacant plots, along roadsides and in open drainages. The open drainage at Srinivasa Nagar near Eighth Main Road, for instance, is clogged with plastic wastes. Had the garbage bins been installed, the problem could have been avoided.

NEET timing ideal

The announcement of the date of NEET examination on September 12 has come in as a great relief to students of Tamil Nadu. It was unfortunate that while boasting about its pride of place in the field of education, the government was also vehemently opposing NEET.
