Metro Works in Hyderabad's Old City to start from March 7th:- The citizens of the old city and the Congress party are overjoyed that CM Revanth Reddy has made the decision to commence metro construction in the old city of Hyderabad on March 7 at Falakunama, according to TPCC senior vice-president & Chairman, Election Commission Coordination Committee G Niranjan. Speaking at Gandhi Bhavan, Niranjan stated that although metro services were initiated in Hyderabad in 2017, the construction was halted at the Mahatma Gandhi bus stand due to objections from the Majlis party. L&T not only rejected the alternative route proposed by the Majlis party, but also expressed their inability to continue the project due to the expiration of the agreement period and the increase in project costs. He added that during the all-party meeting held on December 9, 2014, the Majlis MLAs obstructed the original proposal for the Old City Metro.

The cost from Imiliban to Falakunama has now exceeded 2000 crore due to the actions of the Majlis leaders. In response, the Congress, other Opposition parties, and Citizen forums have voiced their concerns and staged protests to demand the implementation of metro rail in the Old City. The delay in delivering Metro services to the Old City, caused by the authorities, has spanned a lengthy seven to eight years. This delay warrants an apology to the people residing in the Old City. The individuals are hopeful that CM Revanth Reddy will promptly allocate the required funds for these projects and prioritize making metro services accessible to the public as soon as possible.
