People Speak Through Hyderabad Hans
Hyderabad Hans readers make an appeal to authorities to look into their concerns
Paint manholes with radiumNo water
On the eve of World Metropolis Congress at Hyderabad, a 66-year-old man, who was returning home after celebrating Dasara at a relative's house, died after he fell into an open manhole at Himayatnagar. It is high time that all manholes should be border painted with radium paint so that they are visible to the naked eye. Sometimes two wheeler commuters are taken by surprise due the jutting out of manhole covers. A signboard should be placed next to any manhole which has been opened for maintenance or repair. We should follow simple steps which will help protect our lives. I urge The Hans India to carry a sustained campaign till all manhole borders are painted with radium.

Streetlights not functioning for over a year
Mangapuram Colony in Old Alwal is badly lit. The streetlights are either damaged, dim or outdated bulbs which is a safety hazard. Most of the lights are either not working or have been flickering for the past one-and-a-half year.

Electricity bill deducted twice
I paid the electricity bill through e-Seva online but the amount was deducted twice from my account. I tried calling up their customer care but no one responded properly. I also sent a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org but haven’t received any response.

Open manholes, water scarcity hampering residents
This is regarding Mallikurjuna Colony, Road No 3, Old Bowenpally. Manholes have been kept open on the main road for the drainage to flow. This is extremely dangerous for people commuting at night. The higher officials of the GHMC have to look into the matter very seriously. We are also facing lot of drinking water issues in the colony. We are receiving water only once in four days. I request the Water Board officials to look into the concerns as many people are leaving the colony due to this issue.

Widen the RK Puram flyover
The condition of the RK Puram flyover is extremely bad and the concrete road is damaged. The most perilous spot is the sharp turn at the end of the flyover to go to RK Puram. Many cabs, heavily loaded lorries and buses zoom past the bridge which is extremely dangerous. Many hit and run cases have been reported near the flyover. I request the authorities to either widen the bridge or construct a new bridge towards the Gandhi Nagar area.

Wires dangling dangerously
We live at plot no 1164, Pragathi Nagar, Kukatpally. Electrical wires in the colony are dangling dangerously from trees. The same has been informed to the AE and DE but no one has visited the place. We also tried to contact the landline number mentioned on the electricity bill but it is not working. We request the DISCOM authorities to rectify the problem. Our location falls under ERO 315, Jeedimetla, area code: 042001
Civic apathy at Sindhi Colony
Sindhi Colony was once renowned for food joints. But now, overflowing sewage, uneven road surfaces and slipshod repair works have turned the main road into a nightmare. This has been persistent feature for many years now. The drains overflow and stagnate on roads which emanate a foul smell. The roads are dusty too. Merely filling the holes with tar will only complicate matters as it would leave a trail of uneven carriageway. Please look into the matter.

No water supply for a month
I am a resident of Botanical Garden Road, Near Chirec School, Kondapur. We are not getting water regularly. It's been more than 25-28 days since we received water. We all pay the water bill on time but are not getting the supply. We have registered a complaint with the board at the nearby board office. The online complaint has been booked with no 2116 for the Can No 617552312. We request the authorities to please look in to the problem.
