She spoke during her visit to the lake after attending the meeting organised to review the development of the lake at Sangareddy on Wednesday. District collector and other district higher officials attended the meeting.
Speaking to media, she said the lake was declared as biodiversity heritage site because of number of species found at the lake. The state government has sanctioned Rs 3.52 crore for the development of the lake three years ago, but the works have not been completed, she said. She urged contractors to speed up the works as the water levels of the lake have already receded.
She enquired the contractor on the status of development works. She ordered the officials to demolish the encroachments and old buildings that come under the limits of Full Tank Level (FTL).
