GHMC: Rajendra Nagar residents want corporator willing to listen, address their problems

Hyderabad: With the GHMC elections only days away, political parties are trying to woo voters with promises of better infrastructure, free drinking water, and clean nalas. But all that the residents of Rajendra Nagar division want is for the leaders to first address their current problems and try to resolve them.

One resident said, "When we go to an AIMIM corporator, they ask us to go to the TRS. When we go to the TRS, they ask us to go to the AIMIM. They say you voted for them so tell your problems to the people whom you voted."

People of Rajendra Nagar said that the corporator should be in their midst, listening to their problems and working on them. So far, no leader has done that, they added. "Many vehicles were seized during the pandemic by the Hyderabad police in every locality. People were brutally beaten up. No corporator visited and talked about it in the local police stations," said Mohammed Shafi of Apni Duniya Social Welfare Association.

He added, "People were craving for food while others lost their lives due to starvation. What did the local corporators do to help them? Local mosques, a temple, and a church is under their charge. Has any work been done for them?"

He said he had seen children begging in the streets. "I feel ashamed. I can't see a minor or a teenager begging when they should be in schools. This is also the responsibility of the corporators – providing good education. But no, they have only been using us and will continue doing so in the future. Our future, our children's future is nothing for them. They only want votes and to win," said Mr. Shafi.

He also alleged that the local corporator has done nothing to help widows, disabled, and the elderly with their pensions. "Many people are not getting pensions today. They have to pay money to brokers to get their pensions. Some brokers run away with the money. How long will it last?" he asked, adding that it is the responsibility of the corporator to provide employment to poor women in the area.

Mr. Shafi also asserted that there are still poor people in the state today who are not getting ration. It is the job of the corporator to try to provide ration cards for them, he said. "Why are the poor people still without ration cards? The only reason for this is that the corporator does not fulfill his responsibility," he added.
