Hyderabad: City Mayor Bonthu Rammohan on Thursday urged GHMC authorities to conduct a meeting of higher officials led by Chief Secretary for resolution of issues related to various projects initiated by GHMC.

He urged the officials to take necessary permissions for pending projects well before the review meeting.

He urged them to prepare a special action plan to make Hyderabad city a model city with regards to cleanliness for other states.

He ordered them to take necessary measures to ensure that all the private vehicles which carry building demolition and construction debris register with GHMC. He ordered officials to take stringent action against those who dump waste, construction materials and debris on roads, nalas and water bodies. He urged the officials of Ramky to take up works of modernization of transfer stations which are located within the GHMC limits.
