Reduce / Eliminate entry fee for Botanical Garden Kondapur Hyderabad

This petition had 39 supporters

Botanical Garden Kondapur, one of the few places in HI TECH area, where we can breath fresh air is also now being exploited by the govt. A 67% hike in the entrance fee is definitely going to deter a lot of people from enjoying whatever little oxygen is left in the city. Instead of decreasing the entry fee to encourage visitors the department is doing the exact opposite. Add to that I see a lot of trees getting destroyed too. Equally pathetic is the state of toilets in the park. I wonder where does the money go. We need to save this place at any cost. 

This Sunday while coming out it was so disheartening to see a bunch of teenagers deciding not to go in the park as the fees had increased. Already a generation so difficult to bring them out of the TV/mobile confinement, this makes it worse.

Another irony was the newspaper articles the same day which highlight that the city has less than 4% open spaces, and how obesity, liver diseases, diabetes etc are on rise.

Please join me in making Botanical Gardens entry fee to be reasonable (Rs 10) or FREE and make breathable air a citizens right again.
