IT minister KT Rama Rao made a surprise visit to Methodist Colony at Kundanbagh in the Begumpet area here on Tuesday much to the surprise of locals.
After attending an official function at Sindhi Colony where he distributed waste bins to residents, KTR went straightaway to Methodist Colony.
KTR, who generally travels without a siren of his vehicle and clearance of traffic by the police, went to Methodist Colony along with GHMC commissioner Janardhan Reddy without informing the local police or party leaders. Only his gunmen accompanied him.
With the minister in their colony without hullabaloo, colony welfare association members had a plenty of time to have a conversation with the minister.
KTR chatted with a few students who were in the park and sanitation workers. He sought to know the response to the Swachh Hyderabad initiative of the state government. He also spoke to the garbage collection vehicle driver.
Later, the minister sought to know from the locals about the initiatives of his government. He told them that the government would lay roads to a length of 800 km and was planning to lay white top roads with a common duct for cables.
“Hussainsagar lake will be made fit to be a drinking water source and will also be used for organising sailing and other water sports to develop tourism,” he said.
The residents wanted an overhead tank built in the locality. Explaining to them about segregation of garbage in separate dust bins at collection points, Rao handed the bins to residents.
