Hyderabad  Deputy Chief Minister Mohammed Mahmood Ali visited Mecca Masjid, here, on Sunday and inspected arrangements for the holy month of Ramzan.

The Deputy CM directed officials to ensure uninterrupted supply of water and power besides taking care of sanitation and cleanliness. It has been decided to open the Western gate of Mecca Masjid during the month of Ramzan. 

The officials told him that two additional generators were being placed at Mecca Masjid for the month of Ramzan. The State government has sanctioned Rs 5 crore for Ramzan arrangements in the State. However, Mahmood Ali said Ramzan arrangements at Mecca Masjid
