Hyderabad: Alwal cries hoarse as major needs not met
Division -134, Alwal Circle under Qutubullapur Mandal, north zone has an approximate population of 40,000 and the total number of voters are 38474
Alwal: One of the major residential areas of the twin city, Alwal under GHMC, is the home of historic Venkateswara temple. It is connected to the major places in Hyderabad like Secunderabad, Shamirpet, Medchal and Bowenpally.
Though the GHMC elections in Alwal would bring new promises from the candidates, but it must be noted that three out of four important promises were yet to be fulfilled. Re-laying of internal roads, streetlights at every 100 metres and de-silting of stormwater drains and both the lakes Kotha Cheruvu and Chinnarayuni Cheruvu were the three major unfulfilled promises. These issues were taken to the notice of GHMC officials and local corporator Chinthala Vijayshanti many times but still nothing was done, people complain. Just a couple of hours of rain is makes the life of people here miserable
Rainwater mixed with drain water inundates their houses. This problem is acute in all most all the colonies including Bharathi Nagar, Vasavi Nagar, Surya Nagar, Janaki Nagar BHEL Colony under ward no 134 says Manoj Mathur, a resident of Bharathi Nagar. Dr GV Rao, general secretary of Greater Alwal Allied Service Association (GAASA), told The Hans India that several works in this ward were pending for many years. Unless desiliting of major nalas is not done, things would not improve and that is one aspect which the local representative and GHMC has been ignoring, he said.
