Class XI, ENGLISH, "Letter to the editor of a newspaper expressing your views on water shortage in your area"

The Editor,

The Daily DAWN,


Dear Sir,

I wish to draw the attention of the concerned authorities, through the columns of your esteemed newspaper, towards an extremely vital and tormenting problems of our neighbourhood.

For the last several months, the people of this residency, in spite of paying all types of taxes and utility bills, are encountering problems due to water shortage. Most of the time, pressure of the water is low and it takes quite a lot of time to fill a bucket. We are facing the torture of hot summer without proper water supply. I regret to point out that it seems as if there is nobody to take care of the citizens and solve their problems. The authorities have not paid any attention or given a positive response to the repeated requests of the residents. The situation has now reached at an alarming stage, which may result in the form of protests and caustic damages of the government buildings.

The concerned authorities are therefore requested to look into this matter without further delay and take suitable steps to solve the problem.

Thanking you for your cooperation.

Yours truly,

X. Y. Z

Resident of P. Q. R. Area,
