ADILABAD: In order to crack the whip on municipal officials, municipal minister KT Rama Rao has warned that all those who fail to resolve civic problems in their respective jurisdiction would be shifted.
Rama Rao held a review meeting with municipal officials in the collector’s conference hall on Sunday and directed officials to resolve all the civic related issues in their municipalities. The officials, who have been long standing in the municipality, have failed to solve the civic issues including water-logging.
Referring to GHMC, the minister said that to avoid irregularities, the long standing officials would be transferred in a similar way if the civic works were not resolved within the given time frame.
He said the corporation was keeping tabs on the officials who failed to give details of the municipal administration. This includes the number of applications received for the construction of buildings and the amount of revenue earned.
Meanwhile, he directed officials to demolish all identified illegal structures before monsoon to avoid flooding, water-logging of roads and storm water drains.
Last year, the officials identified more than 65 illegal structures in the colonies of Ravindranagar, Shantinagar, Vinayak chowk, Housing board, Thatiguda, Mahalaxmiwada and some other interior colonies. In Nirmal district, Nirmal and Bhainsa municipalities identified more than 50 illegal structures.
