'Respond to problems of senior citizens'

“Senior citizens are wealth of the country and taking care of them is the responsibility of all citizens. Each youngster must develop the quality of responding to the problems of senior citizens”, said Zilla Panchayat Chief Executive Officer Abhiram Shankar.

He asked youth to take care of the health of senior citizens.

He called upon people to create a healthy society by getting toilets constructed in their houses. He asked social and other organisations to create awareness on health and sanitation and use of toilets.
