    Hello Mr Prime Minister ! Please see to the noise pollution during festivals.Its taking a toll on people who do not wish to hear glaring sounds of loudspeakers n dols coming from lanes n by lanes any part of the day, one cannot even talk on the phone .People don't adhere to warning s and rules.And the huge beautiful railway stations in Navi Mumbai is so filthy and unkept.Swatch Bharath should be all over India not only few selected places. Thankyou. Anonymous
