  1. Sir,
    Where is the essential services building being constructed in AA-II (as mentioned in the TT news clip above)? Is it the utility building you were talking about in AA-IIC?

    If yes, what services other than a library and post office are opening here? I would request for a NTESCL bill counter for post-paid/pre-paid and also Eco-Park/MWM ticket counter (if feasible).

    And that building doesn't have any foot path near it. May I request you to approve construction of foot path from AA-IIC housing clusters to 6th Rotary please? And also a footpath connectivity to the utility building (if feasible)

    Additionally, the medians on the streets between housing clusters of AA-IIC to 6th Rotary should also be renovated with gardens/ decoration please. Kindly have them plant tall trees on the median and have them water those regularly so that they don't die in the summer.

    Best Regards,
