HYDERABAD: A minimum educational qualification has to be prescribed for candidates to contest GHMC elections if governance has to be improved in Hyderabad. How can we expect to have good politicians who understand people’s issues and administration if a minimum educational qualification is not made mandatory? At least graduation is needed for one to understand the problems of a big city like Hyderabad.
How many corporators actually know about all their responsibilities and duties? How many of them can understand the importance of citizens charter and the structure of GHMC administration? The government should fix a minimum qualification for contestants.
They also need to be trained after they are elected as many corporators do not even know how to conduct themselves or communicate with officials and get works done.
The government has come up with a proposal for construction of a cultural centre and auditorium at NTR Stadium. We want the government to drop that idea.
We have very few open spaces in the city and NTR Stadium has been very useful to morning walkers, students and youth playing sports and for conducting various events. I want to bring to the notice of the government that if it wants to construct an auditorium in the locality, it can do it in the land of DBR Mills which has long become defunct. More than 25 acres of land belonging to DBR Mills is lying unused at the centre of the city.
