    Hyderabad, a metro, needs to be free from spitting, urinating in public. People who spit do not realize that they are putting other peoples’ health to risk as an infected person can transmit diseases like TB with spit. Men urinating in public and raising stink is totally unacceptable. Even on busy roads like the road leading to Ameerpet, the lane before VIP luggage store has an abandoned building which is used by people to urinate. The stench is unbearable. Spitting while walking / riding in a vehicle, blowing one’s nose, etc. should be totally banned and people should be sensitized.
