Hydrerabad: The multipurpose sports complex at the Sanath Nagar playground, which was a dream for many sportspersons and youngsters for years has finally become a reality, with Municipal Administration and Urban Development Minister KT Rama Rao inaugurating the complex here on Friday.
According to Cinematography Minister Talasani Srinivas Yadav, though the foundation for a sports complex at the spot was first laid by former Chief Minister Marri Chenna Reddy, the Congress Government had sold the land identified for the complex to the Provident Fund Office. The Municipal Corporation then allocated another land to the PF office and a new sports complex finally became a reality thanks to the support extended by Minister KT Rama Rao.
The State government has been taking up several development works in the constituency, as part of which Rao later inaugurated a modernised graveyard at Balkampet, a sports complex at the Labour Welfare Centre, a sports complex at Ghasmandi, Monda Market, a new Library Building at Audaiah Nagar and a multipurpose function hall at Marredpally besides laying the foundation for a theme park in Nehru Nagar. All these works are being taken up at a cost of Rs 19.5 crore.
The Balkampet graveyard, once taken over by wild growth and unhygienic conditions, has now been developed into a modern graveyard on the lines of the Mahaprasthanam in Jubilee Hills. The decades-old Fatehnagar flyover is all set to be widened to facilitate smooth flow of traffic and the State government has accorded permission for the project. A proposed underpass in Sanath Nagar industrial area also has been sanctioned Rs 104 crore, Yadav added.
