HYDERABAD: BJP state president K Laxman has demanded that the state government should come out with a disaster management plan for Hyderabad.

Speaking to reporters here on Tuesday, Laxman said that the state government should take measures to minimise the damage due to any disaster in the City.

Disaster.jpgThe funds released by the Central government and the taxes collected by the GHMC should not be diverted to any other purpose and they should be used for the development of the City, Laxman demanded.

The recent heavy rains have made lives of people on the outskirts miserable with  no drinking water and power. But CM K Chandrasekhar Rao, instead of solving the problems of the people, launched affront on the Opposition leaders, Laxman alleged.

He said BJP activists, RSS workers and representatives of various NGOs came to the rescue of the people and not much relief came from the state government.

The BJP leader alleged that when the 13th Finance Commission allotted `136 crore to the GHMC, the state government diverted those funds.

When all the states selected their capital cities as smart cities, the Telangana government deleted Hyderabad from smart cities programme. Thus, Hyderabad failed to get `500 crore under Smart Cities programme, Laxman alleged.
