The Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) is coming up with an action plan for six months with a focus on sanitation and healthcare in the city. The Mayor along with corporators and officials will coordinate for overall development of sanitation and other civic issues through meetings at zonal, circle and ward levels.
“Awareness campaigns involving residential welfare associations, voluntary agencies and self-help groups would be taken up in the coming days on issues such as release of water on roads and ban on plastics. “The awareness aims to make citizens take up the responsibility for the overall development of the city,” said M Dana Kishore, GHMC Commissioner.
Kishore said the works on one lakh double bed room houses taken up at a cost of Rs 8,000 crore were in progress and would be completed by the end of this year. The GHMC is ensuring all necessary basic minimum facilities at the double bed room housing sites for the convenience of the beneficiaries and providing them parks, play grounds, drinking water, street lights, drainage and other amenities, he said.
