Telangana to spend 3k crore on Warangal

Chief minister K Chandrashekar Rao on Wednesday rained boons on Warangal by announcing the setting up of a Special Development Authority that will oversee its development and turn the city into a modern one. Warangal being the second largest city in Telangana, the government is committed to its development, KCR said, adding that plans to develop the city as an educational hub, among other things, will take shape beginning next month.

Addressing a press conference, the CM said that the government plans to spend Rs 3,000 crore on Warangal in the next ten years. He announced that the existing district collectorate building will be pulled down and an integrated district office complex will be built in place. He also said that a 12-storeyed state of the art police commissionerate office will be built in the city. “Very soon, Warangal will begin witnessing smart policing,” he said.

KCR added that the government will shift the central prison to Mamnoor village on the outskirts and use the existing structure to augment the services of MG Memorial Hospital. The government also plans to make the city slum-free, he said. As part of this plan, the government will sanction construction of 15,000 houses for the poor, he said. Further, he said he would take up with the union urban development minister M Venkaiah Naidu the issue of laying an underground drainage system for the city. Twenty modern and hygienic vegetable and meat markets will be built in the city along with 20 community halls.
