    KAVITHA SANIL is a lady. she has family to look after. Still she served her best as a Mayor and built record in the people of our district.

    Brother Bhaskar still more work you can do because you are a man. Donot be partial to rich and poor, strong and weak.

    Rectify the up and downs and errors and mistakes and work on it.

    We wish you all the best Baskaranna.
