Secunderabads Bansilalpet stepwell receives mention in Modis Mann Ki Baat

Hyderabad: On 27 March, during his usual 'Mann Ki Baat' address, Prime Minister Narendra Modi appreciated the restoration efforts undertaken at Bansilalpet stepwell in Secunderabad.

Highlighting the importance of water conservation and protection of water sources, Mr. Modi said, "I am happy that many people in the country have made water conservation a life mission. Many of the stepwells are centuries old and are part of our heritage. Bansilalpet Kaun in Secunderabad is one such stepwell. Due to years of neglect, this stepwell got filled with mud and garbage. But now the campaign to revive this stepwell has started with public participation."
