It’s raining houses in Hyderabad for the poor! Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, during his whirlwind tour in the Old City as part of the Swachh Hyderabad campaign on Wednesday, sanctioned hundreds of houses to the poor.
Rao sanctioned 224 houses in Kurmaguda, 228 in Kismatpur and 48 in Syed Saab ka Bada. He also promised houses to 1,000 families at NTR Nagar in Dilsukhnagar. In the Uppal Assembly segment, he sanctioned 100 G+2 houses for tribals at Singam Cheruvu Tanda. He said the survey and design for new houses would begin Thursday itself.
The Chief Minister assured the poor that multi-storey apartments would be constructed and each family would get a double bedroom flat. Rao further directed the officials to set up three sub-stations in the Old City to solve low voltage issues. He told the officials to acquire land in Kishan Bagh area for a 133 kv sub-station.
Besides, he promised a drinking water reservoir at an estimated cost of Rs 12 crore and underground drainage facility at an estimated cost of Rs 25 crore in Dabirpura.
Rao also visited Saroornagar tank where he directed the officials to make alternative arrangements and see that the drain water does not reach the tank. Currently, four nalas carry drain water to Saroornagar tank. He said the drain water would be diverted to Musi. The CM alleged that the tanks were destroyed in the city during the erstwhile AP rule. “Once there were 1,100 tanks in the city. Now, only 164 remain,” Rao lamented.

Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao said he would speak to the Congress leaders and ask them not to disturb Bhimrao Wada residents for construction of their party office. The State government would allot land at another place to the Congress, he said and added justice would be done to Bhimrao Wada residents.
