They are at war. It is GHMC vs HMDA in respect of arrangement being made for the June 2, State-wide celebrations as both the departments are at logger-heads. Authorities are in a dilemma over the difference of opinion between two major departments which were expected to be part of the TS formation day celebrations. HMDA outright rejected the request of GHMC for setting up hoardings on the outer ring road stating that vehicles run at great speed and there was scope for accidents. HMDA also ordered to stop any more installations on it.
Flexies set up in parks and greeneries also angered the HMDA. The GHMC has been decorating flyovers, parks, junctions with lights for the celebrations but not in places under the control of HMDA. The HMDA feels that greater has hijacked the cleansing of Hussainsagar lake which is under their control. HMDA maintains most of parks, greeneries under the flyovers where GHMC has made some arrangements, which irked the HMDA as it thinks that greater took away publicity and income generated.
