Hussain Sagar which is one of the tourist spots in the city is turning bad to worse and the water has turned green in colour with water hyacinth at the shore.

A pedestrian at Tank Bund Srinivas said that Hussain Sagar is one of the tourist attractions, but the condition of the lake is very bad and because of the sewage water there is a lot of stink during the peak hours.

Another pedestrian Laxman said that ahead of summer the stinking smell in Hussain Sagar has increased and people are unable the stand or move around the lake. He added that the department has to soon take some necessary measures to avoid the bad smell.
