Hyderabad: A PIL has been filed before the High Court seeking that it give directions to the state government and Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) to recover the losses suffered because of Ramky Enviro Projects, which had defaulted after signing an MOU for taking up waste management, including collection of garbage in the city.
Mr Saida Rao, a resident of Vanasthalipuram, alleges that Ramky Enviro had entered into an agreement with GHMC in 2005 to generate power from the garbage collected. However, not only did it fail to take up power generation, but also gave partnership to foreign companies in the proposed project. Mr Rao charged that the government and the local authority had transferred public money to the tune of nearly Rs 3,000 crore to the USA-based KKR organization, which is a share holder in Ramky Enviro, for collection of wastage in the twin cities. The petitioner lamented that although the agreement holder had never bothered to lift garbage, officials and concerned authorities maintained a stoic silence.
