The Musi river is an integral part of the Hyderabad city, and its pollution affects all of us residents. For many years this problem has been neglected, and the bad smell emanating from the famous Hussain Sagar and the problems faced by the people residing adjacent to the river, ignored. The river has now become a sewage in the literal sense of the word, as the industrial waste and domestic waste are dumped in the river continually. The Telangana State government has promised to revive the dying river through the "Musi Riverfront Development Corporation" under the leadership of KTR, the Municipal Administration and Urban Development(MAUD) Minister of Telangana,promising that Musi would be developed on the lines of Sabarmati river of Gujarat, setting aside 1500 crores, but no action has been seen to be taken so far. Not only the city but the villages adjoining Hyderabad have been direly affected. This is what Shankar of nearby Edulabad which is a major affected area had to say "I had hope that at least when Telangana was formed, our Musi river - our lifeline, and the pride of Hyderabad, would be saved. However, it seems less likely with each passing day," he rues."We have been systematically denied the very basic things required for life. The air we breathe, the water we drink, and the food we eat. They're all polluted now," Shanker adds.
