He further remarked that ‘real’ Hyderabad was not in Gachibowli, HiTec City, Kondapur or the Financial District as portrayed by the state government.

The minister expressed frustration towards the state government for the lack of basic infrastructure and services in the poorer sections of the community.

He claimed that the state government should also focus on the primary health care centre at Gudimalkapur, which has been without power for three months due to a short circuit.

He warned officials against neglecting the needs of the people and urged them to take swift action to address the issues faced by hospital patients who reported to him that they have been struggling to receive adequate medical care in the absence of electricity.
