Telangana’s Municipal and Urban Development Minister KTR faced protest when he visited Hyderabad’s flood-affected areas to review relief operations. In one of the affected areas, when a youth tried to convey his plight to KTR, he had to be removed by the Minister’s security.
The Minister, who is CM KCR’s son, told officials to launch sanitation and disinfection drives to prevent the spread of water- and vector-borne diseases.
KTR told officials to station 104 vehicles in various locations to cater to healthcare needs and also stock adequate medicines and disinfectants. KTR also asked them to arrange 50,000 bed sheets for the needy in all relief shelters.
KTR visited Nallakunta, Musheerabad, Amberpet and Tolichowki and interacted with residents and assured them that all necessary measures were being taken by his government to bring normalcy in the areas.
