Municipal Administration and Urban Development Minister KT Rama Rao on Tuesday began personally handing over the financial aid of Rs 10,000 that was announced by Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao to residents at their doorsteps in rain-affected areas in the city. This financial aid would be extended to around four lakh families in the GHMC and surrounding areas.

During his interaction with residents, the Minister assured them that the State government would extend all help to them and also enquired about the distribution of the Chief Minister Ration Kits. Wading through knee-deep water, the MA&UD Minister visited several areas, including MS Maktha, Shaikpet, Nadeem Colony, Nagole and Lingojiguda among others and handed over the financial aid.

“During this crisis, I appeal to all MLAs, corporators, RWAs, NGOs and other public representatives to assist the government to ensure that the assistance reaches the needy,” he tweeted later.

The Minister was accompanied by local MLAs and corporators as he went about distributing the aid. Earlier, the Minister held a meeting with all MLAs from the GHMC limits along with Mayor Bonthu Rammohan and Deputy Mayor Baba Fasiuddin.

During the next 10 days, all MLAs must inspect the situation in rain-affected areas, and monitor relief and rescue operations in their respective constituencies, the Minister said.

He specifically instructed MLAs and corporators to visit relief camps set up by the GHMC and to ensure the distribution of food, medicines, blankets, drinking water and also the provision of toilets in the camps.

“If required, the MLAs should initiate measures for expediting relief works. Amid all these activities, the focus should be on speeding up restoration works,” Rama Rao said, adding that MLAs and corporators must constantly make inspections at the field level and instil confidence among the people.

Meanwhile, all MLAs, MLCs and MPs from the GHMC limits decided to contribute their two months’ salary to the Chief Minister’s Relief Fund.
