After the formation of new TS Government headed by KCR, the sanitation and cleanliness in Hyderabad has come to a stand still. TDP GHMC leader Singireddy Srinivas Reddy asked Commissioner Somesh Kumar to focus on rendering services to people than concentrating only on collection of tax or demolition of illegal structures.
“GHMC authorities have failed in its prime motto of Cleanliness is next to Godliness. The total sanitation has come to a standstill. Roads got damaged due to scanty rainfall. Street lights are not in working condition and rain water harvesting units have not been provided in the government and GHMC offices including the residential colonies, he alleged.
Several people are suffering from highly contagious diseases like, Swine Flu, Dengue and Chikun Guinea. As many as 20 cases of Swine Flu have been reported in Erragadda Hospital and one of the patients has succumbed to the disease. Two more cases of Dengue Fever have been referred to the Fever Hospital and four cases of Chikun Gunea in Kapra Hospital have been registered.
All this is happened due to the dreaded insects and parasites i.e. leech breeding underneath damped and unhygienic Dumper Bins due to non-sprinkling of bleaching powder. Though an officer of IAS Cadre is being made in-charge for sanitation, no suitable remedial measures have been invented to maintain adequate sanitation,” Singreddy said.
Perfect sanitation, maintenance of roads and street lights, rain water harvesting etc are to be taken care of keeping in view the prevailing rainy season.
