HYDERABAD: Around 100 people thronged Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) head office at Lower Tank Bund on Monday afternoon and rued that houses allotted to them by the government were occupied by aides of local leaders.

They rued that beneficiaries were not even being allowed to enter the houses at Karmaghat division (GHMC LB Nagar zone). In all, 512 houses were allotted under Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (Jnnurm) scheme in Karmanghat.

“We paid Rs 82,000 to government under the scheme, we paid the amount in instalments between 2016 and 2019, but there are some other people who are already in possession of the houses and resort to violence when we try to enter our houses. They claim to be aides of local politicians,” Indira, a beneficiary protesting at GHMC head office, said.

The group also met GHMC commissioner DS Lokesh Kumar on Monday. GHMC officials said they had handed over the keys to the correct beneficiaries.

“We had handed over keys as per records, but the beneficiaries are saying that the houses have been occupied when they locked their homes. Instances of violence were also reported, we are waiting for orders,” GHMC officer on special duty (housing) Suresh Kumar said.
