K. Chandrashekar Rao, the Chief Minister of Telangana, on the 21st of October, asked officials to set up teams and monitor the flood situation in Hyderabad.
Since the past week, Hyderabad floods have become a major matter of concern for the Telangana Government.
In regard to this, K. Chandrasekhar Rao asked the officials to set up 15 teams to monitor rivers in the city and take measures to control the floods. He also directed the officials to prevent untoward incidents under the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) limits.
During the review meeting held with Rajath Kumar, the Principal Secretary to the Road and Building Ministry, KCR asked the officials to monitor the Hyderabad rains situation.
The Telangana CM said, “Since all the rivers are overflowing in and around Hyderabad, the CM asked the officials to be alert and take measures accordingly to tackle any kind of situation.”
KCR asked the officials to act swiftly if any river breaches in Hyderabad and directed to set up special teams of engineers and other staff.
KCR said, “As the tanks in the city have water to their capacity and are still receiving inflows. The tanks are likely to get breached causing more damage. Hence, the people residing nearby areas should be made aware of the breach and shift them to safe places.”
Meanwhile, with the CM Relief Fund and other launched measures, the Telangana Government is working towards the repair works and rescue works amid the alert of heavy rainfall for the next two to three days.
