Why destroy KBR Park for roads, ask Sashidhar, Uttam

Coming down heavily on the TRS government for its hasty policies, Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee President N Uttam Kumar Reddy said on Saturday that unscientific approach of the government would severely harm the green cover in the city, leading to an environmental disaster. He was referring to road projects doing harm to the KBR Park.

He said that state government’s stance over developing the Strategic Road Development Program (SRDP) would spell a doom for the KBR park. During a PowerPoint presentation on the SRDP by the Congress leader Marri shashidhar Reddy at Gandhi Bhawan, Uttam Kumar Reddy alleged that the TRS government was destroying KBR and other parks in the name of development.

He reiterated that the Congress party would not be a mute spectator to the destructive policies of the government. He said, “Developmental activities must be carried out keeping the public interests in view, but TRS has been eyeing only political and financial gains”, he said.

Uttam Kumar Reddy said that state government had been centralizing the resources promising to build Skyways and twin towers and this would lead to severe repercussions on the environment of city in future. He said that projects like SRDP and others would also lead to traffic issues in the future.

He flayed the state government for causing unnecessary delays to the Metro Rail Project by stopping the project midway.

Earlier, former Vice-Chairman of National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA), Shashidhar Reddy, warned the state government about widespread protests against the SRDP. He alleged that the TRS government wanted to grab the precious land of KBR Park in the name of development.

"If this project (SRDP) materialized, it would be very dangerous for the surrounding colonies and in case of rains it would lead to floods in the area. This project would not leave any space for the water to pass," he said.

Noted environmentalist Purushottam Reddy said that if anything done by the State Government is in the interest of people, it would be respected, but government was neglecting the environmental loss caused by this project.
