Hyderabad: Telengana chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao wants to add to the Hyderabad skyline around the historic Hussain Sagar as a step to improve the overall appeal and image of the city.

The chief minister, who held a review meeting on this matter, instructed officials to identify possible locations besides gathering the land particulars of those sites for building the 60-100-storied structures around the lake as a first step in this direction.

He also directed the officials to drain all the water of the lake into nalas in the summer to clean up the lake bed so as to make it a freshwater body as part of the plan.

According to the chief minister’s office, the government would decide at a later date whether to involve the private sector directly in building these structures or to take up on its own before leasing them out to private players for hotels, offices and entertainment activities  among other purposes.

“Skyscrapers are an important attraction of the global cities like Singapore and Hyderabad, which has all the traits of a global city, should also have such buildings,” Rao said.All the drainage systems and nalas connected to Hussain Sagar will no longer release the polluted water into the lake, according to him.
