Mega infra projects lined up: KTR

The State government will lay roads in rural areas at a cost of Rs. 15,000 crore and build flyovers and sky walks in the city spending another Rs. 20,000 crore, said State IT Minister K. Tarakarama Rao here on Wednesday.

Addressing delegates at the Hyderabad Software Enterprises Association’s (HYSEA) Annual CSR Summit here on Wednesday, Mr. Rao stated, “When we took over there was erratic power supply, but now we are almost self-sufficient.” He also mentioned that the State government will take up drinking water projects worth Rs. 35,000 crore to supply water to 8.5 million rural households.

Mr. Rao also said that Hyderabad will receive more drinking water supply from the Krishna phase-3 by November 15 and also from the Godavari phase-1 project by December. “We are also trying to ensure that Gram Panchayats have their own plan to complete the project. We have tied up for funds from the Central government, State government,” he said.

“We also constructed 12,500 toilets in Sircilla, the village I adopted, and we will construct water harvesting structures there soon,” said Mr. Rao, adding that he wanted HYSEA and other industry members to work with local bodies.
