HYDERABAD:Governor ESL Narasimhan made a surprise visit to Anand Nagar Colony in the city on Wednesday to inspect the area.

The governor, accompanied by the nodal officer of Anand Nagar Colony for Swachh Hyderabad, principal secretary (irrigation) SK Joshi and GHMC officials, went round the colony and spent around 45 minutes.

Narasimhan wanted the officials concerned to sanction Rs 50 lakh for segregating the drinking water and drainage pipelines.

His surprise visit followed an SMS complaint given by a resident of the area recently about overflowing sewage. Raj Bhavan staff received the SMS. The resident sent the SMS to Raj Bhavan as the governor is the chief patron of Anand Nagar Colony under Swachh Hyderabad programme.

“We have been facing the problem of overflowing of drainage for the last one month,” the resident said in his complaint.

Immediately after receiving the SMS, governor’s press secretary MVV Krishnanand spoke to the officials concerned and resolved the problem. Later, he informed the governor of the matter.

When Narasimhan wanted to make a surprise visit to the area, his staff informed him that the drainage problem had been solved.

Yet, Narasimhan wanted to visit the area.

The residents told him that sewage was getting mixed up with drinking water in the area.
