On Monday, tweeting a few pictures of the crowd on the popular stretch, Rao said it looked more like a carnival on Tank Bund and suggested to Urban Development Special Chief Secretary Arvind Kumar that more kids-oriented activities should be started, and suggested a laser show as well.

“Arts+Crafts+Music will create a Magical experience. Let’s explore a laser show in the lake & some viewer galleries on all sides,” (sic), the Minister tweeted.

Arvind Kumar responded immediately, agreeing to the suggestion and replying that he would set on starting crafts, art and music at Tank Bund on Sundays immediately.

The Minister’s tweet triggered responses from the public welcoming the suggestions, with some coming up with their own suggestions as well. While one was to allow e-rickshaws and avoid other vehicles completely, another was to allow music bands to play and entertain the crowd. Some said the same idea could be tried out on the cable-stayed bridge at Durgam Cheruvu as well.

It was on August 24 that Rama Rao, responding to a suggestion from a citizen, asked the City Police to consider traffic curbs for a few hours on Sundays on the Tank Bund. City Police Commissioner Anjani Kumar issued orders the next day itself, announcing that the Tank Bund would be closed for general traffic between 5 pm and 10 pm on Sundays. The last two Sundays, as a result, have seen the traffic curbs, and in turn, the public coming to Tank Bund in huge numbers, strolling along the scenic stretch and making use of the recent facilities that the State government has installed there.
