The Commissioner,

Pune Municipal Corporation,


Sub: About expressing thankfulness for the appeal for controlling Corona Virus.

Respected Sir,

I am the resident of Ganesh Nagar area. In my area the Corona Virus is spreading very fast. People are not following the rules made by the government. So, it is very important to make these rules very strict. Sir, you have appealed people to take proper precaution to be safe from corona. Among these important tips washing hands are very essential. People should keep social distance and wearing mask is a must thing. During these days travelling should be avoided as well as going to crowded places should be strictly prohibited.

Once again, I express my gratitude on behalf of our area for appealing and making the rules very much strict.

Thanking you.

Yours faithfully,

Rohini Patil.
