Hyderabad: The Telangana Government would strive to make Hyderabad a slum-free city and construct two-bed room flats in place of shanties, Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao said today.
“K Chandrasekhar Rao, the Chief Minister, announced that Hyderabad will be a slum-free city. Every slum will be developed with two-bedroom flats for convenience of the families residing there,” a release from the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) quoted him as saying.
Rao was speaking after laying foundation for construction of 396 houses at IDH Colony and four adjacent colonies in Secunderabad.
The Chief Minister said local MLA Talasani Srinivas Yadav briefed him about the dilapidated conditions of the existing houses in IDH Colony.
Rao has instructed the GHMC Commissioner to take up demolition of these houses and construction of two-bedroom flats in their place for families residing there within 5-6 months.
Rao said he will convene a meeting with the elected representatives of the city within 10 days to take a collective decision for constructions of new houses in the identified slums.
