CHIEF MINISTER’S OFFICE
GOVERNMENT OF TELANGANA
Press Release Date: 17-9-2014.
Honorable Chief Minister Sri.K.Chandrashekar Rao reviewed the progress of Metro Rail Project with officials of L&T, Metro Rail, Chief Secretary to Govt. and Principal Secretary to CM. The issue of a news item published in couple of newspapers today, attempting to damage the interests of Telangana state has come up during the review. Though correspondence between the L&T and Metro is a routine thing, these selected newspapers have chosen to publish the latest correspondence mischievously and in isolation.
It is felt in the review meeting that this is a deliberate attempt to project the Metro Rail project in a bad shape. The issue has however been resolved with the involvement of CEO and M.D., L&T Sri. Vivek. B.Gadgil, Managing Director, Metro Rail Sri.N.V.S. Reddy, Chief Secretary, Dr. Rajiv Sarma, Principal Secretary to CM Sri.S.Narsing Rao and Advisor to Govt. Sri.Papa Rao.
To take the project further forward and to take up the 2nd phase of Metro Rail project, Advisor Sri.Papa Rao and Chief Secretary Dr.Rajiv Sarma will be going to Delhi to discuss with concerned officials there. They are also likely to meet the officials of Govt. of India as well as obtain appropriate advice from acclaimed Metro Rail expert Sri. E.Sridharan.
