Ravula demands White Paper on HMR project
TDP Telangana State party has demanded that the State government release a White Paper on the construction and delay of Metro rail project in Hyderabad. Speaking to media persons at NTR Bhavan on Monday, party senior leader and politburo member Ravula Chandrasekhr Reddy said the HMR project was delayed due to wrong decision of Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao. This project was scheduled to be completed before 2017 at a cost of Rs 14,132 crores. But “immature” decision of KCR put additional burden of Rs 3000 crores. The organization, which was executing the project wrote to the state government to bear the additional cost. Ravula alleged the Congress and TRS governments have deliberately delayed the project, which materialized during the TDP regime.
