HYDERABAD: Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) officials on Saturday razed two rooms built on the footpath outside the Jubilee Hills residence of former Andhra Pradesh chief minister and YSRCP president YS Jagan Mohan Reddy.

The makeshift structures that encroached the footpath along the compound wall of Jagan’s residence housed security personnel.

Bulldozers brought down the two illegal structures — with a temporary roof and walls on three sides — less than a fortnight after Jagan’s party suffered a crushing defeat in the assembly election. GHMC officials had arrived at the spot with local police in tow anticipating protests.

TOI made repeated attempts to contact the GHMC authorities to find out if indeed a notice had been issued before the structures were brought down, but the officials were not available.

It is learnt that a few days ago, the municipal authorities had informed the former Andhra CM’s staff to remove the structures citing obstruction to traffic. The officials had also received a complaint regarding this.

Policemen from Andhra used to guard Jagan’s Lotus Pond residence, where he stayed whenever he visited Hyderabad. After YSRCP faced the electoral drubbing, the guards were withdrawn.
