Secunderabad: Even as the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) is going on an over drive and planning for Haritha Haram, there is no trace of activity on this front at the Secunderabad Cantonment Board. The GHMC is planning to plant 40 lakh saplings under Telangana Haritha Haram whereas the SCB has plans of planting only 2,000 saplings.
No plans for Haritha Haram in Sec’bad Cantt
Residents of Teachers Colony, Bhudevi Nagar and several colonies in the cantonment have been complaining that it has been several years since tree plantation took place. Ravinder, a resident of Kharkhana says, “All the greenery is in the Army area. There was greenery in Alwal and Bolarum area but thanks to mushrooming of colonies, the green cover has reduced drastically. R V S Prasad, a retired railway employee and resident of Lothkunta says, “The SCB has no plan of action as it does not come under the purview of GHMC but we the residents are sufferers.”
