After she took the post of a corporator, nearly 50 per cent of community halls were freed from encroachment and were handed over to the locals and director for city library committee
“When I was elected as corporator of Gunfoundry division the area was in a very bad state, but later I started taking up the issues and installed street lights, took up drainage and sewerage works. As the condition of the nala in Netaji Nagar was very bad, the GHMC sanctioned Rs 1.7 crore for the repair works of nala,” said corporator. Explaining about the works taken up in the area, Mamatha said that under JNNURM scheme - construction of 1BHK houses was launched in 2011, but due to shortage of funds the work was stopped and after a representation to MA&UD minister K Taraka Rama Rao was made, Rs 440 crore was sanctioned for the construction of 106 houses in Phool Bhag basti.
Mamatha, also a director for city library committee, said that to provide employment beautician and tailoring certificate courses were offered to unemployed youth to make them skilled.
