HYDERABAD: To mollify the unhappy mayors, chairpersons, corporators and councillors of urban local bodies (ULBs) in Telangana, the department of municipal administration and urban development (MAUD) has decided to involve elected representatives in all ULB programmes in the near future.

Municipal chairpersons, in a representation to commissioner and director of municipal administration (CDMA) B Janardhan Reddy a few days ago, expressed displeasure that they were being ignored during government programmes held in their cities and towns, and wanted all elected representatives of all municipalities in the state be involved in the programmes.

Following their request, CDMA sent a circular two days ago to all municipal commissioners and regional directors-cum-appellate commissioners directing to involve representatives in  government programmes. The circular said that as MAUD was making all possible efforts to stregthen the ULBs in all spheres of development in a sustainable way, municipal elected representatives  needed to be given importance and  consulted and involved in all programmes and developmental activities. The municipal Commissioners were asked to communicate a copy of all government correspondence to mayors and chairpersons mandatorily.

They were also asked to motivate, enthuse  and inculcate the habit of respecting themselves and others as their behaviour and actions would reflect the performance of the ULBconcerned.
