GHMC should implement free water scheme for Cantonment residents: SCB member

Hyderabad, Jan.28 (Press media of india): The member of Secunderabad Cantonment Board (SCB) J. Ramakrishna today demanded GHMC to implement a free water scheme for the residents of Cantonment area.

           Speaking to media persons at SCB office along with local BJP leaders, he said that it was unfortunate that the name of Cantonment area did not figure in the GHMC’s 2019 free water scheme. He said that they were not able to provide water to their residents as they don’t have their own water resources . He said that they were buying water from HMWS&SB and added that they were paying ₹1.10 Crore to the water board every month to purchase the water.

 He alleged that the state government was supplying the drinking water to the SCB for a double rate and added that no leader had focused on the issue   although discussions at Cabinet sub- committee level were held on the issue . He said that the ruling TRS party has no mercy on the residents of the Cantonment area although they are also part of Telangana state. He said that they had approached courts as they did not have any option on the issue after fighting for 20 years. He said that the court had asked the state government to submit its reply on the issue in a span of two weeks.

Stating that the state government owed ₹90 crore to the SCB, he said that they would approach the court on the issue if the state government did not leave their dues in the need for two weeks’ time. Referring to a request made by state municipal administration and urban development minister KTR to the central government to merge the SCB into GHMC , he said that laughable that the minister was making the request to merge the SCB into a cash strapped GHMC, which is not even able to pay Salaries to its own employees.
