Hyderabad: With increasing urbanisation in Mahabubnagar and its surrounding areas, the elected representatives led by Excise Minister V Srinivas Goud urged Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao to consider the proposals for constitution of Mahabubnagar Urban Development Authority. They stated that due to its close proximity to Hyderabad city, Mahabubnagar and its surrounding areas were witnessing rapid growth which needed urban infrastructure.
Srinivas Goud along with Jadcherla MLA and former Minister C Laxma Reddy and Devarakadra MLA Ala Venkateshwara Reddy, submitted a representation to the Chief Minister at Pragathi Bhavan in this regard on Monday. They pointed out that apart from its easy access to the Rajiv Gandhi International Airport at Shamshabad, the Mahabubnagar town had access to a National Highway, SVS Medical College, Palamoor University and Polepally Special Economic Zone (SEZ) in addition to newly established IT Park and other infrastructure development projects which have propelled the growth in the area.
The proposals were submitted to constitute the UDA comprising the towns of Mahabubnagar, Jadcherla and Bhoothpur apart from inclusion of a few areas from the revenue mandals of Mahabubnagar rural, Devarakadra, Jadcherla, Bhoothpur, Balanagar, Rajapur, Nawabpet, Addakal and Musapet. Accordingly, around 67,054 households comprising an urban population of 3.27 lakh along with about 4.41 lakh residents of 267 Gram Panchayats, are being considered to form the new Urban Development Authority.
