HYDERABAD: The newly-elected GHMC corporators have a tough task ahead, with nearly 2,000 requisitions from the over 4,300 residential welfare associations (RWAs) piled up. Most of these are related to civic issues such as water, sanitation, stray dog menace and new CC roads.
The reason for this pile up is that all these corporators gave assurances to RWAs during the election campaign to gain their support. The RWAs’ representatives also took notary assurances from the corporators to resolve their issues which have been pending for the several years.
Issues such as the revamp of the sewerage network, water bodies encroachments, widening of nalas, laying of new roads, closure of civilian roads and the like, were brought to the corporators’ notice. Each corporator will have at least 10 major civic issues in their respective GHMC ward.
The United Federation of RWAs (UFERWAS) urged all 4,300 RWAs to meet the civic body’s newly-elected corporators and put pressure on them to resolve the issues on priority, according to BT Srinivasan, general secretary, UFERWAS.
“For instance, in Malkajgiri GHMC circle, the sanitation network is poor and most of the residential colonies are stinking due to overflowing sewage water. Another major issue is unscheduled water supply,” said Srinivasan.
The corporators elected from AS Rao Nagar, Kapra and Malkajgiri will face an acid test when resolving the issue of closure of civilian roads by the Army. Here, corporators have assured through notary to resolve the issue on priority. For this, they have to meet the defence authorities. Apart from these issues, the removal of encroachments in water bodies is also a big issue, for which corporators have to deal with the state government.
“All the civic issues are likely to be put forth in the GHMC’s first general body meeting for resolution,” a corporator said confidently.
