Majid Hussain said all GHMC corporators, irrespective of their party affiliation, and officials had worked as a team to develop Hyderabad city. However, he said a few tasks remained unaccomplished. For instance, he said the nalas work could not be completed due to shortage of funds. He informed that the GHMC did not get Rs 1,000 crore under the 13th Finance Commission due to non-conduct of local bodies’ elections. However, the GHMC had spent Rs 250 crore for modernisation of nalas in its limits. He also said the GHMC corporators had developed the peripheral areas with funds of Rs 10-12 crore.

The Mayor said the GHMC could not implement two major decisions. The innovative scheme of breakfast for Re 1 and waiving off property tax to some beneficiaries could not be implemented due to non-conduct of GHMC general body meeting.
