Chief Minister Sri K. Chandrashekar Rao has instructed the officials concerned to prepare a ten-year plan for Hyderabad and in tune with it start taking up measures from now onwards. He wanted the officials to prepare an action plan for the next ten years and an overall plan for the next 30 years. He wanted the officials to come out with a detailed plan on setting up two water reservoirs in the city, drainage, sewerage network, flood canals, power supply, sanitation, transport, markets, toilets, greenery and other such matters.
The CM held a review meeting on Hyderabad development at Pragathi Bhavan here on Friday. Ministers Sri KT Rama Rao, Sri T. Harish Rao, Government’s Chief Advisor Sri Rajiv Sharma, Mayor Sri Bonthu Rammohan, Deputy Mayor Sri Fasiuddin, Special Chief Secretary Sri SK. Joshi, Principal Secretaries Sri S. Narsing Rao, Sri Ramakrishna, Sri Navin Mittal, GHMC Commissioner Sri Janardhan Reddy, HMDA Commissioner Sri Chiranjeevulu, Water Works Commissioner Sri Dana Kishore, PCCF Sri Jha, CMO Special Secretary Sri Bhoopal Reddy, and other senior officials from various departments attended.
“Hyderabad is developing at a very brisk speed and based on the increase in population, the needs will also increase. We have to keep in mind the ever increase in needs and demands. We have to have a plan on what will be this city after 30 years, how much its population is and what will be the necessities then? How to prepare plans for future and what should we do now? At least make an action plan for the next ten years. Every step that we will make today should be in tune with that,” the CM instructed.
“We have given top priority on giving uninterrupted power supply and we have achieved success. We are constructing projects to make the State power surplus. We are also constructing projects to supply water to the farm sector. Power and irrigation projects are going on well. Now the government will focus on giving better infrastructure to the people. There is an increase in the population living in cities and towns in Telangana state. We have to create an infrastructure based on this. Hyderabad city itself has about one crore population. Concentrate more on the city. Take up works according to the plan,” the CM said.
Suggestions made by the CM at the review meeting:
For Hyderabad drinking water purposes we need two reservoirs on a permanent basis. Fill up one reservoir with water drawn from Kaleswaram and other from the Palamur Lift Irrigation schemes. Supply water through gravity and fill 10-15 TMC water in each reservoir. Examine the technicalities and start the works immediately
Grow trees in the forest lands around the city. Take up a plantation in a big way on these lands and on the ORR plant trees like Gulmohar and Pipal on either side of the road. There are seven to eight thousands acres of forestland in Nagole and Narapalli. There is 16,000 acres of forestland outside ORR. Narsapur and Sisampet have 40,000 acres of forestland. Hyderabad should have greenery like New Delhi. Appoint an IFS officer in the Peshi of Municipal Administration Minister to oversee and monitor greenery in the city
Increase the people’s participation in the city development. For this form basthi committees. Every Division should have ten committees. Finalise the committees in 15 days. The Committees should play a key role in greenery and cleanliness
There are several tanks other than Shamirpet, Himayat Sagar, and Gandipet. Take measures that industrial water and pollutants do not flow into the tanks. Construct special canals not to allow the pollutants into the tanks
Officials should adhere to the rules while permitting the new constructions. We will take stringent action if the officials commit any mistake
Develop Musi riverfront on the lines of Sabarmati River front. Make special arrangements for the drainage. Develop gardens on either side of the Musi. Built a road On Musi from ORR to ORR. Construct bridges over Musi at several places to commute
Better the power supply in the city. Remove overhead lines. Strengthen the power supply keeping in view the rise in demand
Work according to plan on roads constructed under SRDP. Give priority to places like Uppal where there is traffic concession. Take technical precautions while making under passes so that the water is not stagnant there.
