In Khammam we have a Bund by name Lakharam Cheruvu. Under tourism concept we were running boats in the lake but for the last three years we are unable to run our boats because the entire lake of about 27 acres area is occupied by creepers (Horse shoe). They are known in the vernacular as "Gurrapu Dekka". The local authorities want to clean this but they dont have the knowledge / suitable technology to do so. We request you toshed some light on how to tackle the present situation.
