Congratulations Mrs Gretta Rebello for the awards ? But I don t understand as a corporator what development you did in ward 34? Shivabagh Main Road is not repaired since last 4 years. Every time you promise to repair and you never do the repair work, only false promises you make. At least after receiving this award do some fruitful work.
