    Lake Shah Hatam, located near Golconda Fort, is facing a threat as construction waste is being dumped around it. Locals are worried that this dumping will lead to further encroachment on the lake. The dumping has been ongoing for months, with an increase in the past two months due to officials being busy with elections.

    Authorities have previously tried to protect the lake from such activities, but construction waste continues to be dumped illegally, sometimes during the night. Despite GHMC regulations against such dumping, the problem persists. A local activist believes that reduced monitoring by authorities has allowed land sharks to encroach on the lake gradually.
