District collector wants Hyderabad’s citizens to have 15 things to be done such as Parking facilities, Women’s safety, Poster free city, lung space , Pedestrians rights, Security for elderly, Cleanliness, Pavements , Better Auto Rates, No spitting and smoking, Public urination, More toilets, Better connectivity, Trash disposal and Healthy dining.
Women’s safety: The police has started a helpline for the IT corridor. Also RTC buses have introduced a separate space for women. The city needs major gender sensitisation efforts.
Parking facilities: The city lacking in parking spots. Despite plans, the multi-level parking slots have not materialised.
lung space: Due to high air pollution in city , the situation is more greenery and lung space. Denizens are thus looking for more parks and green spaces in Hyderabad.
Poster free city: HC ordered the political parties and civic authorities will make sincere efforts to make Hyderabad a poster free city at least in 2015.
Security for elderly: Both Telugu states top in crimes against seniors. Stronger patrolling and having data of elderly people would help, say citizens.
Pedestrians rights: People expect the roads to be safe to walk on. There is a need for pedestrian signals on all major roads.
Pavements: Due to lack of pavements, accidents are on rise in Hyderabad.
Better Auto Rates: Autorickshaw drivers fleece people because they know that the commuter is not aware. With the looming threat of Metro, drivers are looking at senior citizens and students as a new set of customers.
Cleanliness: on the roads a large amount of garbage strewn, pests have found a habitat to thrive in. Not only are there rats, but also bandicoots. To add to this, dog feces, thanks to owners who couldn’t care less, is a big menace.
No spitting and smoking: spitting on the road should be stopped. The same goes for smoking in no-smoking areas.
Public urination: Public urination is not just detrimental to Hyderabad’s image as a world-class city but is also a public health hazard. Citizens deserve to be rid of this malice.
More toilets: The government should build more toilets which is one aspect of life mostly ignored in public.
Better connectivity: Traffic is the major problem in the city. Number of people using MMTS and other trains has increased, but lack of connectivity of areas is a major concern.
Trash disposal: Garbage segregation act would help the society, very little implementation has been done at the ground level. The concept has failed to pick up because it needs a zealous implementation.
Healthy dining: All should eat health foods. The only thing that hurts after eating is the price.
