KTR again raises Cantonment roads issue, asks for GHMC merger

Hyderabad, Dec. 18: Municipal Administration and Urban Development Minister KT Rama Rao has once again raised the issue of roads being closed for civilians in the Secunderabad Cantonment, asking Defence Minister Rajnath Singh to merge the cantonment with the GHMC if the SCB could not provide basic facilities.

In a series of tweets on Saturday, the Minister quoted a report, pointing out how Union Minister of State for Defence Ajay Bhatt was ‘unaware of ground realities’, and that the Union government was reporting only two closed roads when 21 roads have actually been closed illegally.

Also quoting Green Sainikpuri, a Twitter handle run by the Federation of Northeastern Colonies of Secunderabad, the Minister said the ‘highly objectionable and illegal closure of roads’ was causing ‘heartburn among millions of civilians in and around the Secunderabad Cantonment area’.

“What is preventing the Government of India from reining in violation of Local Military Authority (LMA) rules?” he asked, tagging both Singh and Union Minister G Kishan Reddy in the tweet.
