Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao, who was on tour in Nizamabad district on Tuesday, called up Municipal Administration & Urban Development Minister KT Rama Rao and enquired about the on-going demolition of illegal constructions across the nalas and drainage system in the city.

KCR reportedly directed his son to intensify the demolition work without any fear or favor even the structures belong to politicians, including his own party men. The sources said the Chief Minister was taking the issue seriously and asked KTR to go on with the demolition drive boldly on the second day. The Chief Minister also advised KTR to use extra manpower if necessary. He was determined to clear the drainage systems that were occupied by squatters for decades across the city which have been causing blockage of drainage system ending up flooding the low-lying areas.
