K T Rama Rao tells Greater Hyderabad civic body to take builder to task
K T Rama Rao, minister for municipal administration and urban development (MA&UD), on Saturday instructed Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) commissioner B Janardhan Reddy to take action against a builder who dug up land next to a residential apartment in Madhapur without taking appropriate precautionary measures.
The minister tagged the civic chief, Hyderabad mayor Bonthu Rammohan and Harichandana Dasari, GHMC Zonal Commissioner of Serilingampally in his tweet.
The move came after a local resident, Pradeep, tweet about civic apathy resulting in undue trouble for citizens. “@GHMC Online @KTRTRS @CommissionrGHMC @hyd citypolice Hello sir,we are living in Madhapur, near Mi showroom, inorbit mall road. We are facing a horrible situation in front of our apartment. Kids are there, we are afraid of walking. People who are working at the site are not even replying to our pleas,” tweeted Pradeep with the picture of the site.
Zonal commissioner Dasari collected Pradeep’s contact details, and assured swift action, responding to the tweet, saying the GHMC town planning team will inspect the site at the earliest.
