Traffic & Garbage major concerns of the City – Sasthamangalam Mohan

Traffic block is becoming very very common. You cannot move to any side of the city. The other day I was traveling from here to Attingal. It took me 2-1/2 hours to reach Attingal.

What do you think should be the top priorities in ensuring speedy development of Thiruvananthapuram?
