Hyderabad: The State government’s Dignity Housing programme is bringing to life the dreams of the poor to have a home of their own and is also aiding in making Hyderabad a slum-free city.
After residents at eight locations became the proud owners of double bedroom houses, it was the turn of people of Lambada Thanda in Baghlingampally on Saturday as Municipal Administration and Urban Development Minister KT Rama Rao inaugurated 126 double bedroom houses at the site. The State government is offering these houses for free to poor and eligible beneficiaries.
“The New Year began on a happy note for us. We will cherish these moments for our lifetime,” said J Bujji, a beneficiary. Steps are now being expedited to hand over the houses at Chilkalguda, SC Bose Nagar, Gandhinagar, Sriram Nagar and Potti Sri Ramulu Nagar.
Speaking on the occasion, the Minister urged the residents to maintain the community neat and clean.
“It is our home, our colony and our city. Do not dump waste on the roads or in the colony. Ensure sanitation and keep diseases away,” Rao told the residents.
In tune with housing for the poor, the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) is also focusing on developing sports infrastructure in the city.
The Minister inaugurated a multipurpose sports complex at Adikmet. Equipped with a women and men’s gym, the sports complex has provision for basketball, badminton court, table tennis, chess and carroms.
GHMC has already constructed sports complexes, auditoriums, indoor stadiums and playgrounds for recreation facilities for residents and is encouraging sports persons to upgrade their skills by providing the required amenities. As many as 18 such facilities are planned by GHMC and a few have already been thrown open to public and works at other sites are under progress.
