A delegation of All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) party MLAs, led by Karwan MLA Kauser Mohiuddin and Charminar MLA Mir Zulfeqar Ali, met with Hyderabad Commissioner of Police K Sreenivasa Reddy on Thursday to address concerns regarding alleged harassment of petty vendors, businesses, and hotel owners by the city’s police force.
During the meeting, the MLAs highlighted instances of the Hyderabad traffic police imposing substantial penalties on petty traders and street hawkers in various parts of the city, including Mehdiptnam, Reti Bowli, Pattergatti, Lad Bazar, Charminar, ToliChowki, 7 Tombs, Golconda, Asif Nagar, Ameerpet, and other areas.
The delegation expressed the grievances of the affected individuals and requested the Commissioner’s intervention to address the issue promptly. They emphasized the adverse impact such actions were having on the livelihoods of these vendors and the broader local economy.
In addition to the concerns about harassment, the AIMIM representatives also raised the issue of permissions for hotels and other business establishments to operate during late-night hours. They argued that such permissions could contribute positively to the economic growth of the city and cater to the diverse needs of its residents.
Commissioner K Sreenivasa Reddy assured the MLAs that the Hyderabad Police would thoroughly investigate the reported incidents of harassment and take necessary action against any misconduct. He acknowledged the importance of a harmonious relationship between law enforcement agencies and the local business community.
The Commissioner also stated that the concerns regarding late-night operations for businesses would be carefully examined, taking into consideration the interests of both the business owners and the community. He assured the AIMIM delegation that steps would be taken to create a balanced and conducive environment for all stakeholders involved.
The meeting concluded with a commitment from both parties to work collaboratively to address the grievances raised by the AIMIM delegation and to ensure the well-being and prosperity of the citizens of Hyderabad. The Commissioner emphasized the importance of open communication and urged the MLAs to continue engaging with the police department to build a stronger, more transparent relationship between law enforcement and the community.
