Hyderabad, August 13 (INN): GHMC TDP floor leader Singireddy Srinivas Reddy has slammed the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation for not taking up the repairs of roads that were damaged due to recent rains in the city.
Talking to reporters after conducting the survey of roads along with other TDP corporators in the Central Zone areas, Singireddy said that bad roads poses serious threat to the common people. Singireddy visited Ashoknagar, Chikkadpally, Domalguda, and Himayathnagar where plying of vehicles became dangerous due to incomplete repair works by the GHMC and Hyderabad Metropolitan Water Supply and Sewerage Board.
It was observed that the road near R. K. Degree College developed 4-6 inch deep pits and footpath is piled up with debris of a dismantled structure. Lane leading to Tapadia Diagnostic Centre welcomes patients with a pond at the entrance. The road from Tapadia Diagnostic Centre to Chikkadpally crossroads is totally damaged giving a rough and bumpy ride to the commuters. Similarly, Street number 17, Gagan Mahal to Domalguda witnesses half open manhole the cover of which is dangerously kept open by the support of a boulder to let the storm water drain through it. A canal like pit is found in front of Eden Garden Function Hall turning and manhole lids are kept precariously which may become a cause for accidents in the instance of heavy spell of rain.
“First of all GHMC officials don’t repair the damaged roads promptly, and even if they repair they execute them in a shabby way and use inferior material which gives way easily to one or two spells of heavy showers,” Singireddy said.
TDP corporators Prem Dass Goud (Mylardevpally), J Hemalatha (Himayathnagar), Muta Padma (Gandhinagar), Bhanu Pratap (Kukatpally), Raj Jitender Nath (Macha Bollaram), Saritha Govind (Musheerabad) and Ashok Goud (Chandanagar) were also present.
