Apart from land issues, people attended the Prajavani programme for settling various issues ranging from six guarantees scheme to employment issues at the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) headquarters on Monday. Additional Commissioner G Nalini Padmavati, along with Additional Commissioner K Srivatsava, received appeals from the people.
A total of 147 applications were received in six zones under the GHMC. Out of them, four appeals were received in Charminar zone, 18 in Secunderabad zone, 61 in Kukatpally zone, 51 in Serilingampally zone, one in Khairatabad zone and 12 in LB Nagar zone. Nine requests were received through the phone-in programme and were sent to the authorities concerned for resolution. Among them, complaints were received on town planning, drains and other issues.
In the public hearing organised at the GHMC headquarters, 30 requests were received, out of which 15 are related to town planning , one  to transport , five to revenue, two to CE maintenance, two to elections, two to administration  and one request under lakes department.
 Kalyani (name changed) from Ramagundam said, “I belong to the economically weaker sections. Despite having all valid documents, the government has not offered me 200 units of free electricity as per the six guarantees scheme. I hope the officials solve this issue by offering me free electricity.”
Ayesha said, “I have come to Prajavani for the fourth time. My issue on the free electricity scheme is not resolved by the officials. “
Avula Madhavi, a municipal sweeper, said, “I am working as a sweeper in Goshamahal Municipality. I have come to Prajavani on an employment issue. I am in desperate need of promotion from sweeper job to attender.
I possess required educational qualifications for the post. Besides that, I want a transfer from Goshamahal Municipality to Rajendranagar Municipality due to some severe health issues. However, the officials haven’t solved my issue yet.”
V Shashikanth Rao, president of Are-Katika Charmkash Sangh (sheep and goats slaughter house workers union) said, “sheep market at Jiyaguda in Hyderabad, is the largest slaughter house in Telangana. It supports around 5,000 families. When it was closed in January 2004 and moved to Chengicherla, the public exerted pressure on the government on building it in its original place.
The Pollution Control Board objected to the construction of the slaughter house in Jiyaguda. But later, the Board withdrew its objection after we showed valid documents. Our demand for constructing and modernising the slaughter house has not been met. This is my third time here.”

A Venkataswamy Sagar, president of Telangana Sagara Uppara said, “Our association has not been getting payments for 14 months from the GHMC office. As a result, we are unable to pay our employees. I hope that the officials solve this issue at the earliest.”
