HYDERABAD: Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao on Tuesday exhorted newly-elected mayors, municipal chairpersons and other public representatives that the the responsibility of making towns and cities in the state as "ideal towns and cities in the country" is on them.

Rao, who spoke at a 'Municipal Conference' attended by the elected representatives, mentioned about the duties and responsibilities of public representatives and how they should conduct themselves in public life.

Rao said the 'Pattana Pragathi' (progress of towns) programme,scheduled to be held from February 24 to March 4,should be conducted all over the state, according to a release from his office.

He suggested that all the 'padayatras', programmes and rallies to be taken out by the public representatives should begin from residential localities of Dalits where a majority of the poor lived.

Action plans for development of towns should be made ward-wise and works taken up ward-wise, he said.

He sought completion of construction of public toilets in all the towns and cities within three months and power-related problems solved within a period of eight months.

The CM warned that the MLAs, mayors, chairpersons, and commissioners concerned should take the responsibility and may have to quit their posts if they failed, the release said.

He directed that total discipline be ensured in fiscal matters and funds spent only as per plans. (PTI)
