Excise minister T Padma Rao, Secunderabad Cantonment Board’s (SCB) former vice-president Jampana Pratap along with former board members met Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao on Saturday to thank him for releasing Mahendra Hills reservoir water to the Cantonment area.

Jampana Pratap said, “The matter was amicably resolved, due to the intervention of T Padma Rao and due to the kind gesture of the Chief Minister.”

Out of the eight wards in the SCB, drinking water was released to Ward No 3: Karkhana, Kakaguda, Vasavinagar areas; Ward No 4: Picket, Laxminagar; Ward No 5: Jyothi Colony, 1st, 2nd and 3rd phase, Brooke Bond Colony, Gruha Laxmi Colony, Vikrampuri; and Ward No 6: Tadbund, AWHO Colony.

6 lakh gallons of water per day is being released by the Water Board authorities to approximately 150 colonies and a few basthis of the SCB, which was inaugurated by T Padma Rao on Thursday.

“There is a proposal to release 10 lakh gallons from January 2015 to cover Ward Nos 4 and 6 completely. Presently, repairing and replacement works are going on in the existing 6-year-old pipe lines to prevent leakages and wastage of water. Once it is completed, the SCB will streamline the process and issue new connections and also increase the supply timings,” added Jampana Pratap.
