Hyderabad: To motivate the residaents on the need to tighten security measures inside colony premises, Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao himself donated Rs 1,000 to Venkataramana Colony Association (near Nagole) for procuring and installation of CCTVs. He also inaugurated the government’s plan to make Mamatha Nagar as the first Safe, Secure and Smarter (SSS) colony in Telangana State.
Addressing the gathering after taking a tour of Venkataramana Colony on Sunday evening, he took out Rs 1,000 cash from his pocket and handed it to the colony association president much to the surprise of the gathering. Further, he asked every family to make small monetary contributions for installing CCTVs, which would enable roundthe- clock security. He also appealed to residents to take a pledge to maintain cleanliness, not only inside their house, but also in their colonies by not dumping wastage on to the streets.
He told them to plant as many trees including medicinal types to improve greenery. The government would provide as many saplings and tree guards for this purpose, he said. “There is a notable change in the colonies from my previous visit with the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Commission (GHMC) and the Police department improving roads and security measures. This is just the beginning and in the future every colony in the State capital should bear a transformed look,” Rao said. He agreed to the requests of the locals for construction of a community hall and modernising the graveyard located in 10 acres.
Earlier, Chandrashekar Rao visited Mamatha Nagar colony where he inaugurated CCTVs system besides planting a tree. The government is planning to make Mamatha Nagar as the first SSS (Safe, Secure and Smarter) colony in the State and Rao kick-started this initiative on Sunday. GHMC Commissioner Somesh Kumar, Cyberabad Police Commissioner CV Anand and senior officials besides a large number of locals were present.
