Mr. Taraka Rama Rao stressed the need for a lake protection committee, considering the several lakes under the jurisdiction of KUDA, and said the panel should be entrusted with the job of identifying and removing encroachments.

The consultants proposed an inner ring road in addition to the outer ring road, keeping in view the needs of the growing city.

He sought a review of the transportation system in Warangal and said that the Mamnoor airport would also be reconditioned to make it functional.

“Another review meeting on the master plan would be convened by Mr. Srihari on April 10 and it will be published for public scrutiny for 45 days.

Citizens are invited to send in their objections and suggestions,” he said.
