Warangal: Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao asked the officials to prepare a detailed action plan to improve infrastructure facilities in Warangal to make it a ‘Clean & Green City’. At a review meeting held here on Thursday, KCR said the state government in the recent budget had allocated Rs 300 crore for the development of Warangal city. A detailed plan of action should be prepared to improve infrastructure immediately, he said.
The meeting was attended by officials and local legislators at the residence of TRS senior leader V Lakshmikantha Rao in Hanamkonda. The Chief Minister asked the legislators to visit all areas in the city and study the problems related to drinking water, drainage, roads and make efforts to address them. He told the officials to take steps to widen the main thoroughfares to meet the growing traffic in the city.
The city should be developed on par with Hyderabad and be made into a clean and green place, KCR said. He also asked the officials to ensure that a green lane should be laid in the midst of the roads. The roads should be widened with footpaths. It is essential to maintain standards in laying roads that will cater to future needs of the people.
Similarly bus bays, vegetable markets, public toilets, community halls and parks have to be developed to meet the growing needs of the people, he added. KCR directed the officials to immediately start the works of Srutivanam for which 70 acres of land was already identified and increase the pace of works on the theme park in 100 acres land which the CM approved during his previous visit to the city.
In the days to come, Warangal would witness increase in population as a biggest Textile Park would come up here. Hence preparations must be made right now to develop the infrastructure, the CM said. He told the officials to commence Haritha Haram programme which is aimed at increasing forest area to 30 per cent from the existing 26 per cent, from the next Monsoon season. The District Collector should take the responsibility to press officials to ensure that the government offices and educational institutions are maintained up to the mark, he asserted.
The Chief Minister asked the officials to focus on the upkeep of the SRSP canals that will quench the thirst of the city and district irrigation needs, he added. He also reviewed the progress of works on the SRSP canal that supplies drinking water to tri-cities of Warangal-Hanamkonda-Kazipet.
