The vigilance shown by the residents, the self-discipline and the warriors of the Janata Vatahat Kriti Samiti who are fighting to prevent the spread of these viruses in their area, had made it a topic of discussion throughout the city.

The number of people with daily wages is high in the Janata Vasahat.

In this way the colony was kept safe.
