HYDERABAD: Another water body in the city is on the verge of disappearance as unauthorised structures continue to come up along its banks. About 29 acres of land that comes under the Errakunta Cheruvu in Tarnaka is reportedly being encroached by land sharks with the connivance of political leaders.
City-based anti-corruption activist Vijay Gopal, in a tweet, alleged: “29 acres of land under Errakunta Cheruvu in Tarnaka being encroached, @Collector_HYD and @KTRTRS, while the MRO is clearly involved in it. @RaoKavitha, your name is also popping up from among people saying that you are putting pressure on the admin to look the other way. Hope u are not that bad (sic).”
