    i hereby write a letter to inform you that some school’s bathroom is not clean, the students were suffer. my thought before seen the bathroom of Kendriya Vidyalaya was good,
    But, today i m very disappoint that school bathroom is not clean , with fullfill of smell . like R.K. Puram Kendriya Vidyalaya.The students is the future of india.
    So, Please do something for cleaning of school.

    Aapne swachh bharat ka jo rasta dikhaya woh school ke bathroom me ku nahin, school ke ander ku nhi, hai. woh sirf Bahar ku. Jo bahar dikhe whi to safai nhi, agar school ke ander saaf safai nhi hogi to aane wala bachhon ka kya sikhayenge. mene apni life me pehli baar itni gandgi ek K.V. school me dekhi. School ke bathroom itne gande hein. pta nhi bachhe kese school me jaate hein hai. yeh to bimariyo ka ghar hai.

    Aap bhi ek baar jaa ke dekhenge to aapko pta chalega ki safai sikhane ki jarurat schoolo ke ander bhi hain.

    apse request hai ki aap aane wali pidhi jiska future school se juda hain wha ke class or bathroom ko ja ke dekhe aur safai or swachhta sikhaye.

    i humble request to you specially for R.K. Puram Kendriya Vidyalay.
