- Exhibition Grounds to be like Ptagati Maidan

- Extolls Nizam again for building Hyderabad

Hyderabad, January 1: Inaugurating the 45-day platinum jubilee All India Industrial Exhibition-2015 (Numaish) at Exhibition Grounds near Nampally here on Thursday, Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao declared that land of the trade fair will be handed over to the Society in seven days.
Speaking on the occasion, the Chief Minister said a GO will be issued in four days granting the present land to the Society and make efforts to develop the Exhibition Grounds on par with the Pragathi Maidan in New Delhi. Expressing concern over frequent traffic jams and clogging of water during rainy season in the twin cities, the Chief Minister said he would soon call a meeting of senior citizens and other prominent people to find a lasting solution. “We are working out a plan of action to set up signal-free junctions and crossroads in Hyderabad”, he said.
Extending total support, KCR asked the Society to adopt latest technologies. The Exhibition, he said, was rather popular as “Numaish” across India and the world. He attributed the problem of traffic and cognation of water at Assembly, Raj Bhavan and CMO to the criminal negligence of the previous governments, whose priority was only business. The great cosmopolitan city was built by the erstwhile Nizam, who transformed Hyderabad into a place for all communities and foods besides building hospitals, including Osmania, Gandhi, Niloufer, MNJ and Mental and Nampally and Secunderabad Railway Stations, KCR averred. Later on, the successive rulers failed to build government hospitals and railway stations in the twin cities, he said.
“We will transform Hyderabad into an international destination. We can achieve anything with collective efforts”, he said amid applause from the Society officials and the huge gathering. He also announced that he would try to solve the exasperating vehicular traffic problem in the twin cities on the model of Dallas in the US.
The Chief Minister also announced that he would have “face-to-face” program with the citizens of Hyderabad and Secunderabad on TV channels. (NSS)
