Former Hyderabad Mayor Mohammed Majid Hussain met GHMC Commissioner Somesh Kumar and submitted a representation that called for expedition of several projects that were yet to be completed. Hussain recalled that the Standing Committee had passed a resolution in September towards waiving off property tax for those who were below the Rs 5,000 bracket.

Urging the Commissioner to take the agenda forward, he pointed out that, if passed, the property tax-waiver would benefit about 11.5 lakh poor and middle class households. Majid said that barring food centres, there were several projects for which budgetary allocations were made but there has hardly been any progress.

“This includes construction of 24 function halls for the poor, 1,000 public toilets and urinals, more colony parks, an amusement park at Kishan Bagh, comprehensive development plan for Mir Alam Tank, protection of other lakes and open spaces,” said the Mayor.

The GHMC had proposed to construct mini-stadia and swimming pools, comprehensive road development, expeditious completion of flyovers, road over and under bridges, junction improvements, development of peripheral roads, construction of new circle offices, heritage tourism corridor and Gateway of Hyderabad project for beautification of 14 entry points leading into the city.

Under community organisation schemes, the corporation envisaged to launch training programmes for the unemployed youth and women, school approach improvements, GHMC sports fellowships, and installation of 400 Reverse Osmosis (RO) plans for provision of safe drinking water to the needy slums and poor localities, and opening of more night shelters. Majid Hussain, who was accompanied by MLC Amin Jaffry, regretted that although the Corporation had proposed several such schemes, many were at various levels of completion while some were yet to take-off.
