Locals fete Kishan Reddy for Solving a Three-Decade old Road Problem
Hyderabad: Union minister and state BJP chief G. Kishan Reddy on Sunday alleged that the BRS government has failed to provide basic amenities to people residing in Hyderabad. He participated in several programmes across locations in the city.
Reddy resolved a 30-year long issue pertaining to a road located at Satyanagar of Lalapet in consultation with the railway ministry. As a thanksgiving gesture, residents of Satyanagar, Indiranagar, Sripuri Colony, Lakshminagar, Krishnanagar, Chandrababunagar and the neighbourhood felicitated the minister.
Speaking on the occasion, Reddy said that there was a road problem even before he became an MP.
“As part of my election campaign, I visited the place where the locals brought the issue to my notice. But, construction of roads and temples in railway property is not an easy task. It was a legal battle that lasted for eight years. Being a Union minister, I requested the railway officials and solved the road issue,"he said.
Although 30 per cent of the state’s population lives in Hyderabad, the state government has failed to solve their problems. Countless colonies are bereft of proper roads, sanitation and drinking water supply.
"Thousands of applications have been received by the government for two bedroom houses. But, it has only provided a few houses. The BJP government at the Centre provided massive funds for Telangana's development. The BJP government took up modernisation of railway stations spending huge funds. The regional ring road project was sanctioned Rs 26,000 crore," Reddy said.
Meanwhile, Reddy inaugurated a mega medical camp, under the aegis of Seva Bharti at Amberpet. He said that the BJP government sanctioned ‘seven crore for construction of hostel buildings in Osmania University, while tracks to boost sports are coming up at a cost of Rs 14 crore.
“The ESI hospital has increased many facilities. Approximately, 50 percent of seats in the medical college are reserved for children of workers. The BJP government improved facilities in Gandhi, Osmania and railway hospitals, apart from providing infrastructure facilities in primary health centres.
