    Constituencies in the Southern part of Hyderabad lack basic amenities and development. The Charminar Assembly constituency is particularly affected, with long-standing issues such as poor roads, encroachment, overflowing sewage, piled-up garbage, and inadequate lighting in lanes.

    The upcoming elections offer hope to the residents of the Old City. They expect their representatives to address these problems and bring about improvements in civic projects, road widening, preservation of heritage structures, education and healthcare facilities, and overall civic amenities.

    The Charminar constituency has been under the influence of the All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) for many years. However, the area still struggles with narrow and outdated roads. The Charminar Pedestrian Project (CPP), initiated in 2018, is yet to be completed after several plan revisions.

    Social activists point out that there has been no road widening or improvements in sewage systems, stormwater drains, and drinking water lanes in the constituency. Residents in these areas continue to live in inadequate conditions. Slums like Talab Katta, Sultan Shahi, Chowk, Pardiwada, and Puranapul remain neglected.

    Road widening projects that were approved years ago are still unfinished. Various road stretches, including Shalibanda – Fateh Darwaza – DhoodhBowli, Moosabowli to Petlaburj, and Charminar – Falaknuma road, are at different stages of completion. Completing these projects as soon as possible is a common demand.

    Heritage monuments in the constituency also require attention. Renovation plans for Mir Alam Mandi and the construction of the new Mahboob Chowk have not been implemented. Structures like Khursheed Jah Devdi, Badshahi Ashoorkhana, Purani Haveli, and Paigah Tombs are deteriorating and need a long-term conservation plan to attract tourists.

    The AIMIM has dominated politics in the Old City for over four decades. In the 2018 elections, Mumtaz Ahmed Khan won the seat, following Syed Ahmed Pasha Quadri’s three terms as MLA in 2004, 2009, and 2014.

    The need for government hospitals is urgent in this part of the city. Residents are calling for an Urban Primary Health Centre and improvements to existing government-run hospitals, especially in slum areas.

    In conclusion, the Southern constituencies of Hyderabad, particularly Charminar, face numerous challenges that require immediate attention from public representatives. The upcoming elections provide an opportunity for change and improvement in civic amenities, healthcare, and overall development.
