Hyderabad: GHMC Commissioner Dr. Janardhan Reddy on Monday visited Nehru Zoological Park to take stock of the situation and inspected the causes behind Mir Alam Tank water seeping into Zoo Park. He met the officials and sought details regarding encroachments surrounding Mir Aalam Tank. He was informed that the tank used to be spread over 400 acres but has now shrunk due to encroachments on almost all sides
It must be recalled that the latest downpour flooded large areas in the Park after overflow from Mir Alam tank gushed into the zoo.
On the occasion Mr. Reddy assured Zoo Curator Mrs. Shivani Dogra to immediately solve the water logging problems in Zoo Park and told that encroachment on lake land is the reason behind the problem.
