Hyderabad: Congress leader Uzma Shakir slammed All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) party over Osman Nagar’s stagnant water.
Shakir who sat on hunger strike also targeted Maheshwaram Assembly Constituency MLA and Education Minister of Telagnana State, Sabitha Indra Reddy for allegedly not paying attention to the problems that are being faced the residents of the Osman Nagar.

Municipal Commissioner G Praveen Kumar who had appeared before the court said that the victims were shifted to safer places. He also informed the court that the authorities need another two weeks to drain out the water from the colonies. The court has set January 7 as the date for the next hearing.
