Following the deluge during the last monsoon season, the GHMC and private agencies identified by it have repaired and laid roads in many parts of the city under the Comprehensive Road Maintenance Programme (CRMP). But today, after hardly one week of rainfall, the roads are severely damaged both on main roads and internal roads, making it a difficult plight for the commuters. 


The Telangana High Court took note of the deplorable condition of roads in the city and admonished GHMC.  The court wondered as to what was keeping the GHMC from taking up works as people were losing lives due to potholes. 


Those living in the affected areas took to Twitter in a big way and expressed their grievances to GHMC and state authorities. And to highlight the poor quality of roads, a community-based awareness platform, HYD (Hyderabad You Deserve), has started #selfiewithpothole. It is meant to make citizens identify and showcase the hot spots most affected during the rainy season. 


In fact, some of the citizens went to the extent of suggesting that the state government must utilize Rs 2750 crore made by selling Kokapet and Khanamet lands to fill potholes and work on improving the roads instead of spending them in districts for poll gains. 


Around 4000 to 5000 potholes and craters were formed on roads due to incessant rains in Greater Hyderabad last week. And with a forecast for heavy rains in the coming days, the situation is bound to get worse. However, the GHMC officials claim that they can fill the potholes only when rains stop and there would be continuous dry days.
