Aerial survey of Hyderabad, Ranga Reddy districts incomplete
Hyderabad: Technical snag prevented Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao from undertaking aerial survey of Hyderabad and Ranga Reddy districts on Sunday. The survey was intended to understand the contours in and around Hyderabad to improve its green cover.
After paying floral tributes to the late Congress leader P Janardhan Reddy’s statue at Khairatabad on the occasion of his death anniversary, KCR proceeded to Begumpet airport around 12.30 pm. He took off from there to Vanasthalipuram, where he was scheduled to land and go on a field visit of forestland there. After reaching the marked area for landing, the helicopter developed technical problems. The chopper hovering around for a few minutes in air left the place without landing.
Officials presumed that the Chief Minister could have headed for Narapally in Ghatkesar and Kandlakoya Park in Medchal, the other destinations of KCR’s visit. However, the pilot flown it back to Begumpet airport in view of the technical problems experienced in the engine.
Although there was news making rounds that KCR completed his aerial visits, there was no official confirmation. Ranga Reddy district authorities said the despite all arrangements made for KCR’s ground visit in Ghatkesar and Medchal, the CM could not visit due to technical problems developed in his helicopter.
On the other hand, government sources stated that Rao’s visit did not go as planned. The aerial tour of Hyderabad and Ranga Reddy districts would now be carried out once KCR completes aerial surveys of Warangal (scheduled on Monday), Khammam and other districts in the next few weeks.
