Hyderabad: Chief Minister of Telangana K. Chandrasekhar Rao (K Chandrashekhar Rao) is trying to divert by laying the foundation stone for the Airport Express Metro, Union Minister for Tourism, Culture and North Eastern Region Development said. G. Kishan Reddy (G Kishan Reddy) alleged. Having failed to complete the Hyderabad Metro project, he also failed to grant the state’s share to the Hyderabad Multi-Modal Transport System (MMTS). He complained that they have laid the foundation stone for Airport Express Metro to cover up their failure. KCR had announced that he would lay the foundation stone for Airport Metro on December 9.
‘KCR has stumbled on the construction of Hyderabad Metro. We are not surprised by his move to lay the foundation stone for another new metro line. They are constantly trying to hide their failures,’ said Kishan Reddy.
The Green Line (Corridor-2) of the Hyderabad Metro was supposed to connect the Jubilee Bus Stand of Secunderabad to the Old City of Hyderabad via Charminar. Similarly, there was an agreement between the central and state governments. However, the Green Line work has stopped near Afzal Ganj of Mahatma Gandhi Bus Stand in Hyderabad. Due to this, the people in the western part of the Old City have to suffer a lot. People in the eastern part of the Old City can use the metro network at Malakpet Metro Station. But those in the western part of the Old City will have to spend more money and time for Metro and MMTS connectivity,” said Kishan Reddy.
Farm House Chief Minister, who is preparing to lay the foundation stone of Hyderabad Airport Metro, it would be good to recall his previous warnings that even if he runs away with blood, the construction of the metro will not be undertaken, and no one will be allowed to turn a single yard!!#HyderabadMetro#FarmHouseCM pic.twitter.com/wD4eR9NEID

‘The Chief Minister unilaterally changed the approved plan. Due to this the project cost increased by ₹ 3,500 crore. The completion of the project was also delayed. Earlier it was estimated that the project should be completed and implemented by 2016. Telangana government is trying to divert people’s attention by announcing new projects before completing the ongoing projects. He objected that the government which could not complete the metro rail project and failed to provide the state’s share capital for the Hyderabad MMTS project is announcing a new plan.
“There was an agreement between the South Central Railway and the Telangana Government regarding the work of MMTS Phase 2. An amount of ₹ 832 crore has been spent on this project so far. The state government was to contribute two-thirds of the total cost of the work. But due to the failure of the state government to provide this money, the implementation of the work was delayed. Due to this, the cost of the work has also increased to an extreme extent,’ explained Kishan Reddy.
