The invite to citizens – students, professionals, corporates, senior citizens, housewives, etc., to participate in the contest to select brand ambassadors has already received more than 25,000 entries.

Emotional connect

“We want citizens to own up the project and have an emotional connect as metro rail is for the people of Hyderabad. We will use the brand ambassadors for our publicity campaigns during the construction phase,” explained L&TMRH Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer V.B. Gadgil.

Mr. Gadgil and his senior colleagues including Project Director M.P. Naidu and others have begun visiting schools and colleges interacting with the youngsters and their teachers, answering questions.
