Stressing on development of infrastructure to boost growth, Union Minister Bandaru Dattatreya today favoured early completion of Hyderabad Metro project and also improving the MMTS rail services in the city.
Dattatreya, the Lok Sabha member from Secunderabad, discussed the metro project, Multi-Modal Transport System (MMTS) and promoting IT sector in the city with Telangana IT, Industries and Municipal Administration Minister K T Rama Rao.
“We felt that we will meet Chief Minister (K Chandrasekhar Rao) also, if need be, and take all necessary decisions and start it (Hyderabad Metro) at the earliest,” Dattatreya told reporters.
Highlighting the need to de-congest Hyderabad, the BJP leader said he would try to hold a meeting with Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu on improving MMTS (suburban rail system) and also to develop Secunderabad station to international standards.
Rama Rao submitted a Detailed Project Report (DPR) again on the Information Technology Investment Region (ITIR) to the Union Minister on the occasion. The ITIR was sanctioned to Hyderabad during undivided Andhra Pradesh.
Dattatreya promised to organise a meeting on ITIR, said Rama Rao, son of the Chief Minister.
The NDA Government believed in friendly relations between the Centre and states, Dattatreya said.
Rama Rao said the Telangana Government does not believe in a confrontation with the Centre and wants to work together.
