While Congress party shaped Hyderabad city into ‘The Most Livable City’ and a global destination during its rule, Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao has turned it into the most dreaded city in his seven year rule, fired AICC spokesperson Dr Dasoju Sravan, commenting on the failure of TRS Govt in managing recent heavy rains and floods.
Expressing severe ire over the utter neglect of TRS Government in dealing with the heavy rains in Hyderabad, Dr Dasoju Sravan questioned, “Hyderabad city has contributed Rs 7 lakh crore to state exchequer in the past seven years but the city’s infrastructure has been completely debilitated. Where has all that money gone. People are completely devastated and do not even have essential commodities and food to eat. Why is CM KCR still not reviewing the relief measures or announcing compensation? What is the Municipal Minister KTR doing? Why is he fearing to visit the flood areas without security and oversee relief measures?”
“This is not the first time Hyderabad has received heavy rains. Though the Meteorological department warned of heavy rains, the Government did not take any preventive steps or set up a control room to monitor the situation. While the city was being washed away, CM KCR reviewed the ‘Haritha Haram’ on Wednesday and only after extensive devastation, did CM hold a review on rains on Thursday afternoon. Even this was done, after the Prime Minister and The President inquired about the situation. Municipal Affairs Minister KT Rama Rao who makes tall claims about Hyderabad’s development was nowhere seen in relief operations. Only after the damage was done, he visited selected areas, that too flanked by DGP under tight security? Why is he fearing to interact with people who are devastated with floods? TRS Government has turned the global city Hyderabad which is considered as ‘Most Livable city’ into the dreaded city” said Dr Dasoju Sravan speaking at Gandhi Bhavan in Hyderabad on Thursday.
