HYDERABAD: As far as the city is concerned, urban flood management and lake restoration are among the main priorities for TRS, said the party leader KT Rama Rao. Citing Durgam Cheruvu as a model, Rama Rao said that other lakes in Hyderabad, too, would be beautified similarly if Telangana Rashtra Samithi returns to power.
Addressing people from Kukatpally, Serlingampally and Quthbullapur Assembly constituency who convened for a meeting titled ‘Mana Hyderabad-Mana Andhari Hyderabad’, Rama Rao spoke about the party’s plans to ease the traffic congestion by improving the public transportation system in the city.
He assured that Metro through Hitec city would become functional by December and added that his party had the responsibility to extend the Metro service Chandanagar. “Besides, there are also plans to introduce Bus Rapid Transport Systems (BRTS),” he said. He added that his criticism of TDP supremo N Chandrababu Naidu was ‘purely political’. He added that he had no ill-will against the people of Andhra Pradesh.
