Hyderabad: The newly elected Mayor Gadwal Vijaya Lakshmi, Deputy Mayor Mothe Srilatha Reddy and TRS corporators were instructed by Chief Minister K. Chandrashekhar Rao to work to boost Hyderabad‘s reputation and standing.
Congratulating the Mayor, the Deputy Mayor and the companies when they invited him to Pragathi Bhavan to thank him for giving them an opportunity, the Minister-in-Chief said that Hyderabad was a truly global city where people come to live and settle down from various regions and cultures, making it a mini-India.
“The clear message given to the lot by Chandrashekhar Rao was “Working with dedication to solve issues faced by the citizens of Hyderabad.
Stating that those in posts should retain discipline, have patience and should not lose their composure under any conditions, he said: “They should be simple and there should be no change in their attitude or body language,” he said, adding that if they talk unnecessarily, on some occasions it would boomerang instead of putting them at an advantage.
“Chandrashekhar Rao said, advising the leaders to be careful with their words when they speak: “When people come to meet you, when talking to them, you should not look at their caste or religion. You need to listen carefully to them and treat them with respect properly.
Try to assist them if possible, but never lie.’ He pointed out that only a few from crores of people get the opportunity to get elected as elected representatives.
Elected officials, he said, should take advantage of the opportunity offered to them by individuals and earn a good reputation. Even if they do well, there are leaders who face scrutiny, and even a slight slip-up will give them a bad reputation, he said.
The Chief Minister suggested in a lighter vein that the mayor and deputy mayor listen to the popular song ‘Galli Chinnadi… Garibolla Katha Peddadi…’ written by poet and MLC GoretiVenkanna, who described the problems faced by slum residents. He said, “I have listened to this song more than 100 times.”
KCR also informed Vijaya Lakshmi that there are many corporators, but only one person gets the chance to become mayor. Many businesses have credentials to become a mayor, but not everyone gets the chance. Under these conditions, everybody should be unified and work for the entire development of the city,’ he said.
