Uttam Kumar Reddy has accused the TRS Government of delaying the Hyderabad Metro Rail Project by almost four while causing a loss of nearly Rs. 4,000 crore to the State’s Exchequer.
Speaking to media persons after inspecting the Metro Rail works, along with other Congress leaders, on Wednesday Uttam Kumar Reddy said that the previous Congress regime had started the project, worth Rs. 14,000 crore, in 2008 and it was scheduled to become fully operational by 2014. However, he said that the TRS Government deliberately delayed the project on pretext or the other to prevent Congress party from taking the credit for the same. Just for some cheap political gains, Chief Minister KCR. Chandrashekar Rao deliberately delayed the project by almost four years causing huge loss to the exchequer.
