Hyderabad | 12th July 2017
Launching the third phase of his pet Haritha Haram project at Lower Manair Dam in Karimnagar district, Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao today vowed to transform the town to resemble London.
Addressing a public meeting after planting a "Mahagani" type of sapling in the Manair Dam area, KCR said that like London had the Thames river Karimnagar had the Maneru dam, and that the government was determined to develop the town to be on par with London through top quality roads and infrastructure.
The government would also spend Rs 25 crores for the construction of a Kala Bharathi auditorium, he declared.
The Chief Minister exhorted women, children and students to shoulder the responsibility of planting and protecting saplings as part of Haritha Haram. The active involvement of the people would make the green drive a huge success, and help the government transform Karimnagar town into a green belt area, he said.
"Our lives are tied with wood from birth to death as we use a cradle made of wood at birth and our final rites are performed using wood. Therefore everyone should come forward and make Haritha Haram a big success. It is our duty to turn our areas green and enhance the quality of our environment," he said. He added that giving a livable and safe environment to posterity was better than merely giving them money and assets.
The Chief Minister also took a dig at the opposition parties for making baseless allegations on every scheme and program of the government. He lashed out at the Congress and other Opposition parties for coming in the way of development works and projects.
"Some useless fellows are making false and meaningless comments on our schemes," KCR alleged.
The Chief Minister also announced some sops to Karimnagar town on the occasion to help it develop in two years.
Finance Minister Etela Rajender, Forest Minister Jogu Ramanna and others attended the launch program.
