HYDERABAD, MARCH 20. The Standing Committee of the Municipal Corporation of Hyderabad (MCH) has urged the Government to find an appropriate place or hall to be named after Dinanath Mangeshkar, father of famous playback singer, Lata Mangeshkar.
The meeting presided by the committee Chairman, D. Mohan, opposed the Government's move to rename the Basheerbagh-Ram Koti stretch after the singer's father as it was already named after Rajiv Reddy, a former corporator. The Government sounded the MCH on the name change following a representation made by some locals. MIM members on the committee said they were against any plan to change the name of the street to "non-locals."
The panel members also quizzed officials on the action plan for meeting the drinking water requirements for the city in the coming summer. Corporation officials said that the Government had agreed to give Rs. 32 crores to the water board.Members also expressed concern over maintenance of streetlights, which they felt was not up to the mark.
Officials told members that the district Collector had initiated measures to utilise the Rs. 5 crores given by the MCH for upkeep of school infrastructure. Members also wanted that schools in all wards be provided with basic infrastructure.
