High Court Flays GHMC Over Poor Roads Again

The Telangana High Court today expressed displeasure, once again, at the GHMC for not addressing the poor condition of the roads in Hyderabad.
Hyderabad | 20th July 2021
Concerned by the "poor condition" of the roads in Hyderabad, the Telangana High Court today expressed displeasure at the GHMC's "failure" to address the issue, once again.

"Why does the GHMC take decades to simply repair roads in the state capital? As more and more people lose their lives due to the deplorable condition of the roads, what plan is the GHMC implementing to rectify the situation? The body's negligence in dealing with the matter is truly baffling," it thundered.

"This negligent attitude is visible even in the laying of roads and repairing patches damaged by the rains. During the monsoon, the body feels no need to take special care to fix or maintain roads in a timely fashion. Instead of the GHMC, a retired man, Gangadhar Tilak, and his wife have had to take up the work of repairing the city's roads. It is shameful that an elderly man is being forced to spend his pension and savings on the work that the GHMC should have been doing," the HC added.

In response, GHMC officials submitted a report to the court about the road works that had already been taken up.

This failed, however, to satisfy the HC, and it asked the body to explain why so many "bad roads" still existed in the city and why no special preparations were made to improve the roads during the monsoon. It then gave the urban local body two weeks to provide a report and an explanation on the matter.

Last week, too, the HC had lambasted the GHMC for its "failure" to address the poor condition of the roads in the state capital.

It had said, "The failure of the state government and the GHMC in attending to road-related problems is condemnable. Every monsoon, Hyderabad's roads get damaged by and inundated with rainwater. Please take immediate action to repair all the roads that have potholes. Please also immediately repair all the damaged roads."
