I am shocked to read the report of Hyderabad Development Authority which starts with such a negative tone ” Hyderabad a city of contrasts with Glorious past, Depressed present and Bleak Future”. When HDA has such a negative attitude about our city a professional body responsible for development of city then where we would look for improvement and implementation. I have never seen such a badly written report. Every city development report begins with positive start and ends at a positive note.
If i will show this report to any world donor they will not even look at us as we are predicting our own doomsday. Please i highly request Hyderabad Administration to look into this matter and take action against those who made this degrading intro about our great city with a great future. Times have changed so we have to change too and see things positively.
Instead of writing about bleak future of Hyderabad HDA can write some thing more positive and make it mandatory part of master plan that every High rise must have ELEVATORS/LIFTS in the project and Every commercial/and Business development must have CAR PARKING and Every Residential and Commercial development must have a PARK and GREEN SPACE. And to improve Depressed Present of Hyderabad as they have written they should plan construction of Modern Public Washrooms/Toilets in all public places of city, Qasimabad and Latifabad.
This report can be read at this
I highly urge Hyderabad Government to take action to make our Beautiful
Hyderabad a loveable and livable modern city for every one.
For the kind info for Hyderabad Government the Developed countries like Japan, Canada, Germany, Sweden, France and Switzerland have allocated billions of dollars for free funding for transit projects in 3rd world cities to eradicate pollution and make the world and our future green under the threat of climate change and global warming.
If Hyderabad Government seriously stands up and contact these governments and agencies in these governments directly to get funding for deign, build and operate a modern rapid mass transit system for our City Hyderabad Sindh.
Yes it is possible and we can make it happen only if we have a strong vision and commitment. We have to be brave to stand up for our rights. Other cities and provinces of Pakistan are making direct contracts and receiving funding for mega projects. Norway,UAE,China,and Canada are one of those countries who are making direct deals with those cities and provinces. But our province of SINDH and our City of Hyderabad is completely absent in those terms.
HDA can work on a feasibility for Transit plan on urgent basis and we can build a great transit system in our city spreading from Hatri (rural) to Latifabad, Jamshoro (all Universities) to Qasimabad and City and City with Qasimabad and Latifabad by building 4 line network of Sleak trains running underground and above the ground (Mono Rail).
Yes it is possible and we bring those funders from those countries i mentioned here and sell our needs and project future of our city in a positive way above all kinds of dirty politics and personal differences.
It is the right time as developed nations are feeling guilty for creating global warming and offering assistance to 3rd world cities. PLEASE ACT SOON….
