He also pointed out that KCR had earlier said that Hyderabad would be developed on par with Constantinople and Dallas. He mentioned that GHMC has been allotted only Rs. 25.33 crore which is not even sufficient to pay the salaries of the staff.

It may be mentioned that during the past three years, GHMC had prepared plans for Rs. 25 thousand crore for construction of roads.

He also said that for Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority, only Rs. 20 lakh has been allocated.

He further mentioned that the work pertaining to the construction of Police Commissionerate at Banjara Hills is in progress with a budget estimate of Rs. 352 crore.

Niranjan advises TS CM

Mr. Niranjan advised the CM to reduce expenses and withdraw the plans for the construction of new Secretariat and Assembly buildings which is nothing but a waste of public money.
