  • The officials in Telangana State haven’t prepared proper plan and as a result they are acting like in curfew period.

    My domestic servant told us some of her relatives went to Kurnool via truck. After reaching there, they informed that they reached safely. After hearing this message, my servant family followed the same and left to Kurnool. Next day when she failed to come for duty, when we contacted, she said she is Kurnool. This shows how corrupt are our officials. They went to Kurnool to collect the feebees anounced by AP government. They did the same when AP government announced mother of school going child get Rs. 15,000 — children are studying/living in Hyderabad and yet they are getting AP government announced feebees. Also, they go to AP for voting.

    In Hyderabad, many senior citizens are living alone, they need the watchmen, domestic servant, driver, gardner services. But over enthusiastic officials creating hurdles to such people. The government look in to such issues.
