KTR leaves for Delhi to meet Union Ministers regarding pending projects

The Municipal Administration and IT Minister KT Rama Rao will be leaving for New Delhi today to discuss and secure help for the projects involving the Central government in Telangana state. Mr Rama Rao will stay put in New Delhi and meet several Union Ministers.

KTR will be meeting Defence Minister Rajnath Singh to seek permission to acquire Cantonment land to complete the skyways as part of the ongoing SRDP works in Hyderabad city. He would also meet Home Minister Amit Shah to seek the Centre’s consent over the completion of road development in Rasoolpura involving the lands under the jurisdiction of the Union Home Ministry. Mr Rama Rao will hold discussions with Union Civil Aviation Minister Jyothiraditya Scindia or VK Singh on the pending Mamnoor airport in Warangal district.

Several projects are underway but require the Centre’s consent. Mr Rama Rao would take up those issues with the Union Urban Development Minister Hardeep Singh. Mr Rama Rao is approaching the Centre for one last time to sort out the long pending issues. The delay in the Centre’s decision is hampering the pace of development in Telangana.
