Hyderabad: The Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy asked the officials of the departments concerned, to prepare an action plan on the proposed works be taken up to combat the urban flooding, particularly in the GHMC area during the monsoon. The Chief Minister said submersion of low lying areas during the monsoon season in the GHMC area was a matter of concern during the last few years.
He said in the monsoon season, submersion of low lying areas throws the traffic out of gear and people living in low lying areas face a lot of hardship. In the light of this, large number of works have to be taken up by the GMMC, HMWS&SB and Hyderabad Traffic Police to mitigate the problems caused due to monsoon. The Chief Minister wanted the departments to submit the Action Plan at the earliest and initiate the works. A meeting of the departments concerned in this regard will be held soon.(NSS)
