Army, roads and a time­less con­flict

Deccan Chronicle - - CITY - DC COR­RE­SPON­DENT HY­DER­ABAD, OCT. 13

The Hy­der­abad Army was merged with the Bri­tish In­dian Army in 1901 and Bo­larum was merged with the Se­cun­der­abad Army unit. The dis­tance of 10 km be­tween the two en­camp­ments was a bit of a prob­lem be­cause there were 13 vil­lages in be­tween. In 1906, these 13 vil­lages, called Mugh­lai vil­lages, were added to Se­cun­der­abad.

These 13 vil­lages are now cre­at­ing a prob­lem for the Army, the civil­ian ad­min­is­tra­tion and the state gov­ern­ment. Ad­vi­sor to the state gov­ern­ment Papa Rao sug­gested that the gov­ern­ment should take over these 13 vil­lages, since they did not come un­der the purview of the Army or the Can­ton­ment.

“The clo­sure of the roads af­fected 15 lakh peo­ple and four out of the 18 GHMC ar­eas were af­fected be­cause of this,” says Sethi who rep­re­sents the Fed­er­a­tion of North Eastern Colonies of Se­cun­der­abad (FNECS) as a com­mit­tee mem­ber.
