After Dallas, Hyderabad To Become Shanghai!

After Dallas, Hyderabad To Become Shanghai!

Our politicians make tall promises and present a multi-coloured picture of the cities they want to develop in future to garner votes. But on ground, the situation continue to remain worse, while the leaders make big fortunes.

Take for instance, Telugu Desam Party president and Andhra Pradesh chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu, who has been making tall claims of developing new capital city of Amaravati on the lines of Singapore and Tokyo and saying that it would be one of the top 10 cities of the world.

At every meeting and every convention, Naidu presents a graphical picture of the proposed Amaravati capital city and takes the people into a dream world. But on ground, the situation is different – slushy fields, leaking secretariat buildings and sinking roads.

It will take at least two generations to witness a decent town, if not a world class city in Amaravati.

In Telangana, too, the situation is no different. During the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation elections in 2016, Telangana Rashtra Samithi president and chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao made tall claims saying he would convert Hyderabad into another Dallas.

He also proposed construction of skyscrapers all around Hussainsagar to make it look like Manhattan city.

But the situation in Hyderabad has turned from bad to worse in the last four and a half years. The roads are in a pathetic shape and one single rain, the roads turn into cesspools. The drainage system has turned chaotic with ever increasing population.

Now that the TRS has won 14 out of 24 assembly seats in Greater Hyderabad in the recent assembly elections, KCR has once again started showing a colourful picture to the people of Hyderabad before the next Lok Sabha elections.

He says he would develop infrastructure to bring Hyderabad up to world top class standards on the lines of Shanghai city of China.

He is now promising to spent Rs 50,000 crore on the creation of urban infrastructure in the next three years with focus areas being underground drainage, streetlighting, parks, pavements and roads.

“More flyovers, skyways , stormwater drains, underground cabling, top-class roads, streetlights, pavements, parks and other civic bodies from part of the grand plan to turn Hyderabad into another Shanghai,” a senior GHMC official said.

Let us see how far KCR will go to fulfil his latest promises!
