Owaisi Slams Telangana Govt on Metro Rail:- AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi and Hyderabad MP is known to be into controversies from the past few years. Asaduddin Owaisi even questioned the government and he has been strengthening his party which has stupendous grip across old city, hyderabad. The latest update is that the Telangana government excluded a part of the old city from the Metro Rail project which has been announced yesterday. L&T who has been building the metro in the state’s capital made enough changes even after starting the project. There has been huge delay in the construction across some routes which spoiled the entire program.
Asaduddin Owaisi took on Telangana government after a part of the old city has been ignored. Telangana government extended the time for the completion of the metro project and they asked L&T to complete the entire work by November 2018. Asaduddin Owaisi took twitter questioning “Why is Old City being left out. L&T and HMR must explain the reason. Our party wants metro rail in Old City”. Asaduddin Owaisi wanted the government to make the metro wave into all the corners of the old city.
Reporting that the 5.5 km stretch in Old City is part of the 15 km rail Corridor-II from JBS to Falaknuma, the leading newsdaily Times of India revealed that the route will have to end at Mahatma Gandhi Bus Station at Imliban in Afzal gunj. It won't pass through the old city covering Salar Jung Museum, Charminar and Falaknuma. There are also talks that the property acquisition has not yet started in old city.
With the government issuing a deadline for L&T, it is highly impossible for them to acquire the properties and complete the balance stretch in the next 17 months. Hence the old city part has been ignored informed a source from the metro rail department. On the flipside, L&T has been finding it tough to convince all the owners to demolish some of the structures to make ways for the project to be wrapped up at the earliest.
Telangana government asked L&TMRHL and HMRL to launch the completed stretches at the earliest and it has been revealed that they will start operating this year. The Miyapur – LB Nagar corridor which has been stretched across 29 kms and Nagole – Hitech City corridor which has been extended across 27 kms will start by the end of 2017. There are talks that the budget has come up by Rs 3000 crores.
