HYDERABAD: Chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao remained completely air-borne while surveying Hyderabad and Ranga Reddy districts on Sunday as he chose not to land at any place even as officials waited for the CM’s chopper to land.

The CM took up the survey to identify suitable locations in and around Hyderabad to develop parks and recreation centres besides assessing the traffic scenario in GHMC limits. He wanted to personally look at the most-congested junctions and locations on the outskirts of the city so as to identify places where the proposed skywalks and multi-level flyovers can be constructed.

Rao’s chopper landed at Harina Vanasthali in Vanasthalipuram where he inspected the forest lands. He wanted to develop greenery in lands other than forests and reviewed with officials about developing of greenery on roads.

From Vanasthalipuram, he hovered over Narapally forest area in Ghatkesar and Kandlaloya forest area in Medchal.

Meanwhile, officials of both Ranga Reddy and Hyderabad districts had waited in vain at different locations expecting that the chief minister’s chopper would land to conduct a survey of particular locations.

Ranga Reddy district officials, including collector N Sridhar, had waited at Narapalli only to understand eventually that the chief minister had already reached airport in Begumpet without landing at designated locations.

However, the Chief Minister’s chopper flew over Narapalli(1,088 acres), Kandlakoya (380 acres) and Vanasthalipuram( 2,500 acres) which have huge tracts of forest lands. As per the plan, he was supposed to land in these areas to assess the extent of government lands available for developing parks and amenities.

It is learnt that the chief minister is planning another aerial survey in both these districts after a similar survey is conducted in Khammam and Warangal districts.
