In recent months several GHMC officials have be in news for the wrong reasons i.e. for amassing wealth well beyond their legitimate means leading to arrests of respective employees. For the past six months I have been knocking the doors of GHMC officials as well the Nacharam Police and representing before them about illegal structure that has sprung up at Plot No#151, Karthikeya Nagar, Nacharam. These representations were addressed to concerned authorities by personally lodging complaints at their respective offices, petitioning them through registered posts as well extensively making use of facility of lodging complaints available to citizens by lodging complaints on GHMC website and C2G (Citizen to Government) website:
Find below the list of complaints lodged with concerned authorities:

Finally, my efforts bore fruit, when I received a letter from MAUD officials bearing Memo No: 16697/F2/2008 dated 17th October 2008 in response to my several representations to concerned authorities. The memo stated that GHMC Commissioner and Special Officer is examining the matter and necessary action will be taken and the same shall be intimated to complainant at the earliest.
Also, on 26th December 2008 I received a telephone call from Mr.Prabhakar Reddy (Mobile No#98499-04792) TPS-GHMC Kapra Circle official who enquired about the nature of my complaint that I had lodged with them. But, till date no official from the GHMC-Kapra Circle end has communicated to me what action has been taken against the incident that has occurred in their jurisdiction in broad daylight for reasons best known to them.
The lax attitude of GHMC-Kapra Circle officials is not taking action even after receiving clear instructions towards this end from GHMC Headquarters is rather sad and surprising. It’s high time the GHMC higher officials awake from their deep slumber and act on grievances/complaints or else the day is not far off by public at large shall lose faith and confidence with the government machinery.
Also, I believe over the years there is a strong powerful well-entrenched lobby functioning within the government machinery, that is least interested/bothered in addressing public grievances or providing services to citizens. Over the years, the motto especially GHMC and law enforcement officials has been to amassing personal wealth making use of office which they are attached to.
Largely due to fact that Government of the day, which shying away from its responsibilites and not cracking down hard on corrupt officials who are hitting media headlines as they are using their official positions to amass wealth through illegal methods.
I earnestly pray and hope that media officials or concerned departments/officials shall help me reach out to authorities concerned and instruction listed in Memo No: 16697/F2/2008 dated 17th October 2008 are implemented immediately without any delay in letter and spirit.
