Expressing content at the heavy rains lashing the State filling most projects and lakes and water bodies getting abundant waters, Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao today said there will be no water problem for next two years.

After a two-and-a-half hour cabinet meeting, KCR told the media that the State government will demolish all the illegal structures in the city abutting nalas and low-lying areas. Urging the media to stop hyping and create panic among people caught in the web of rains and floods in a few pockets on the outskirts, KCR attributed the present situation in the twin cities to the lack of planning by the successive governments. “We will develop the city on par with global standards to cater to future 30 years and it needs about Rs 15,000 crore to Rs 20000 crore.
Hyderabad received 448 per cent more rains than normal. Of 46,000 lakes 25,000 filled with abundant waters while only 71 lakes were reportedly breached due to heavy rains. Except Nagarjuna Sagar, all other projects filled with waters and Srisailam and Nizam sagar will be filled with more rains expected. He asked the officials not to take leave and attend to the rain affected people seeking help.
