"The cost of living in the city is relatively low, which makes it a nice place to live in. I think the city needs to work on making its transport network better."

"The cost of living in the city is low, which I like. I am proud of the fact that Salem is well known for its mangoes and silk products. I hope that the transport network and the state of law and order in the city will improve in the future."
