Ameerpet-LB Nagar metro line next week

Industries Minister K.T. Rama Rao has assured that the Ameerpet-LB Nagar section of metro rail line will be opened to the public next week.

Addressing a meeting of TRS leaders and workers of the Sanatnagar Assembly constituency, Mr. Rao said the next three years would see development of Hyderabad in a big way at a cost of ₹50,000 crore. A lot was required to be done for the city.

Replying to BJP president Amit Shah’s poser to Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao on advancement of elections in the State, Mr. Rao asked Mr. Shah to spell out the reasons for Narendra Modi, as Chief Minister of Gujarat, advancing polls in that State by nine months in 2002. He also asked whether what the BJP did then was right and the TRS wrong now.

He said the Congress was the sole rival for TRS in the coming elections. But, the Congress itself was not confident and tried to forge alliance with other parties.

Mr. Rao defended the decision of the TRS to go for early polls as the Congress had not only targeted the former and the Chief Minister but children in their family. Therefore, it was decided to test which party was right.

Earlier, former MLA of Sanatnagar and TRS candidate for the seat T. Srinivas Yadav said ₹600 crore was spent on developmental programmes in his constituency. The meeting witnessed public narrating developmental programmes taken up in the constituency.
