KTR puts GHMC Officials Alerted ahead of Heavy Rains for Hyderabad:- Hyderabad received the highest rainfall last week and the city is flooded in all the low-lying regions. While the opposition parties slammed the Telangana government, Telangana Municipal Administration and Urban Development Minister KTR came out to visit the affected regions. Telangana Chief Minister KCR held a series of meetings with the officials and announced a relief package of Rs 550 crores. But the biggest challenge is that Hyderabad is expected to receive heavy rainfall for the next four days and an orange alert has been issued. The GHMC officials are alerted and they are asked to work round the clock to carry the rescue operations. KTR asked the officials to evacuate all the people who are residing in the low-lying regions.
80 special officers have been deployed in the limits of GHMC to take care of the rescue operations and the relief measures in the region. The officials will monitor all the activities for the next 15 days. 30 boats are brought from AP and Karnataka to shift the people who are residing in flooded regions. 20 of the GHMC boats are already in operation. 80 colonies in the limits of GHMC are still submerged and the relief operations are currently happening. KTR urged all the residents that are residing in the low-lying regions to shift to the relief camp. He wanted the people not to put their lives at risk as heavy rains are expected in the next three days. KTR said that Rs 60 crores are spent by the government to carry the relief operations. KCR requested Narendra Modi to grant a relief fund of Rs 1350 to carry the relief operations in the state.
