Expressing concern over the “illegal” closure of 21 roads by the Secunderabad Cantonment Board (SCB) and the inconvenience faced by commuters, Telangana IT and Municipal Minister KT Rama Rao on Saturday urged the Centre to work with Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) for rapid development and improve facilities.

Taking to his Twitter, Rao expressed discontent and accused the Centre of remaining a mute spectator regarding the issue. Addressing Defence Minister Rajnath Singh, and Union Tourism Minister G Kishan Reddy, he accused union minister Ajay Bhatt of misinformation in the parliament for stating that two roads were closed in the cantonment area in Secunderabad. KTR said 21 roads were closed by the cantonment board and are causing inconvenience to the people. “This highly objectionable & illegal closure of roads is causing heartburn among millions of civilians in and around the Secunderabad Cantonment area,” he said.

“If the SCB can’t provide basic facilities for citizens, request you to merge it with GHMC and resolve,” he added.
