The Telugu Desam corporators who conducted a ‘mock general body meeting’ at GHMC head office on Monday alleged that neither the mayor nor other officials were keen on taking up sanitation works and address various civic problems in the city.
In the meeting held by GHMC TDP floor leader Singireddy Srinivas Reddy, the corporators discussed recent increase in the number of viral fever cases due to incessant rains, besides bad roads, faulty street lights, nala encroachments etc.
“When the city is facing several health, poor sanitation and other civic problems, GHMC mayor M Majid Hussain and officials are busy with the proposed biodiversity conference. The authorities are interested in the development of South zone (old city) and neglecting other zones in the city.
The general body meeting has not been conducted in last several months and we have conducted “mock meeting” today to remind about it,” said Singireddy. He further added that despite many requests, the mayor had not called for a general body meeting to discuss about increase in number of viral fevers and poor sanitation.
