KCR promises drinking water for all in Hyderabad


The CM K Chandrashekar Rao on Sunday said that drinking water tap connections would be given to every household in the limits of Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) in four years.

Laying the foundation stone for drinking water project taken up at the cost of Rs 350 crore at Malkajigiri area in the city, he said his government had taken up Telangana water grid project under which all the houses would be connected with round-the-clock water supply network.

The big challenge before the government was to ensure all the houses get connected with the drinking water network, the Chief Minister said adding that if he failed to fulfil the promise, the TRS would stay away from taking part in any election in the GHMC limits after four years.

KCR held the previous TDP and Congress governments responsible for the present drinking water crisis in the State capital. People dwelled like orphans in their own city in united Andhra state, he said and added that his government would make Hyderabad ‘the city of joy’ by providing all basic amenities.
