HYDERABAD: In what may turn an embarrassment for the TRS government, ruling party corporator from the Hayathnagar ward in the city went on to lie down on the road in protest against heavy water logging due to a dug-up road in his division that affected 800 residents of the Green Meadows apartment .
Wednesday’s heavy rains over the city led to water logging in many areas of the city. One such locality turned out to be in the Hayathnagar ward along the Auto Nagar road leading to the highway.
Hayathnagar corporator Sama Tirumal Reddy said, “Over 800 people live in Green Meadows apartments that house 204 flats. The road near these apartments has been dug up by contractors. Despite several request to the Zonal GHMC office, the road has not been laid. Due to incessant rainfall during the last two days, water has stagnated in the area, thereby obstructing movement of people. Many children are afraid of using the road”.
The corporator went on to say, “The residents are blaming me for the apathy. With no option left, I had to lie down on the road in protest.”
The road has not been levelled as on Thursday....
