Ranga Reddy District Collector A. Vani Prasad has asked HMDA officials to identify dumping sites for disposing the Hussainsagar’s silt. The current practice of dumping the silt at Jawaharnagar dump yard should be discontinued. The silt should be dumped in certain old mining sites in the city, she observed.

Ms. Prasad also directed officials to provide proper relief and rehabilitation to the families of two workers who died in on Monday due to the collapse of a wall in Dilsukhnagar, under the ‘Apadbhandu’ scheme. Ms. Prasad also directed the District Revenue officials to immediately remove illegal structures being built in the water catchment areas. She reviewed construction works being taken up in Moinabad and Shankarpally areas and asked the officials to take action against those indulging in activities like construction of buildings near water bodies and illegal excavation works.
