Hyderabad: Keeping in view the elections for the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporations scheduled in December 2020, the TRS is said to have decided to make the state’s annual Budget city-centric.

In recent review meetings with officials and also during the Cabinet meeting Chief Minister K. Chandrasekar Rao indicated that more funds were required to the develop Hyderabad as a world class city.


The government indicated its mind on concentrating on Hyderabad by issuing an order on Friday to accord sanction for constructing 38 foot overbridges. Officials are expecting the release of more funds to the city.

The Opposition Congress and BJP are targeting the ruling party with regard to non-completion of double bedroom houses in the GHMC limits.

The TRS leadership had promised during the previous  GHMC elections that it would not seek votes if it failed to complete and hand over the 2BHK houses.

Sources in the TRS disclosed that to counter the Opposition’s criticism, the party had decided to allocate more funds to complete the construction of house before the end of October, thereby removing the main plank of the Opposition attack.

Sources said that in view of reports that the Aam Aadmi Party is planning to enter Telangana state through the GHMC elections and promising Delhi-model free sops, the TRS is also aiming at announcing several schemes for the city’s denizens.
