KCR to launch 'Swachh Hyderabad campaign' on May 16
Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao has taken cue from Prime Minister Narendra Modi's pet-programme Swachh Bharat Abhiyan to win over ensuing Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) polls with a massive supplement programme 'Swachh Hyderabad campaign'.
This will be launched on May 16 on a massive scale and Chief Minister indicating his government's priority on the development of the city, had announced that Rs 20,000 crore has been earmarked to develop the city in next three years.

He has started efforts to go all out to take control of the civic body. For this campaign, the city has been divided into 400 segments. Units will be headed by the Telangana Chief Minister, ministers, parliamentary secretaries, All India Service officers and other senior heads of the Departments of Government of Telangana. Every unit will concentrate on sanitation and other civic related works to be taken up in each segment.

The nodal officers would be making a preliminary visit to their respective units. Each unit is divided into 1.5 to 2 sq. km. During their visit they would have to make a list of the civic problems and also identify eminent sports personalities and people who make a difference to society. The Chief Minister also instructed the officers to find out if any pensioners were not getting their pension.

The team would identify open spaces for tree plantation, setting up of CCTVs and take up development activities. The officers would also identify locals and motivate people to take part in the programme. The participants would be given t-shirts and caps. Each nodal officer would have to identify 15 members comprising people of eminence from their units. Out of these 50 per cent would have to be women members. Each unit is allotted Rs 50 lakh.

Conducting orientation programme for 400 nodal officers and other senior officials who are part of the programme participated, the chief minister said that the responsibility for cleaning up Hyderabad will be entrusted to all the leaders and officials. The campaign aims at making the city dirt-free and smart by removing debris, garbage and dust. 800 vehicles will be used for the initiative.

Asking all government officials and the general public to turn Hyderabad into a clean city, Rao drew the attention of the members on the deplorable conditions in the city. He cited the way vegetables are sold on pavements.
