Warangal Urban: The Greater Warangal Municipal Corporation (GWMC) has removed as many as 288 illegal structures including compound walls, sheds and houses against the total of 384 identified structures on the nalas, to ensure free flow of the water in the nalas in the city thus avoid the inundation of the low-lying areas under GWMC limits.

The civic body launched a special drive to remove the obstructions on the nalas following the directions from Minister for IT and MAUD KT Rama Rao, who visited the city as several colonies were affected by the very heavy rains on AUGUST 18.

A special task force committee was also formed under the chairmanship of District Collector Rajeev Gandhi Hanumanthu to oversee the demolition drive. There are three major nalas with a total length of 27.5 kms and the illegal structures on these nalas caused inundation of the low-lying areas in August this year and in September 2016.

The special drive for the removal of the encroachments on the nalas, Waddepally nala, Bondhi vaagu nala and Bhadrakali nala will be continued to demolish the remaining structures after getting the stay orders vacated. “Some people filed the petition in the High Court (HC) urging it to stay the demolition drive. We are trying to see that the stay orders would be vacated at the earliest to continue with the demolition drive to remove 96 structures,” GWMC commissioner Pamela Satpathy told ‘Telangana Today’.

The MAUD Minister K T Rama Rao appreciated both the Warangal Urban Collector, and GWMC commissioner, for their proactive role in the demolition drive. “My compliments to the Warangal Urban collector & Municipal commissioner GWMC on a job well done in removing obstructions on nalas  and storm water drains. We need to follow similar strategies in Hyderabad & all other towns,” he said in a tweet.
