Time and again Jayaprakash Narayana venting out his animosity towards Telangana

At every progressive decision, the ruling BRS party takes, at every turn of the event that unfolds and at every development it showcases, there are leaders, academicians and so-called intellectuals ready to point a finger at. After pouring down his intellect calling the indispensable Kaleshwaram a vain project, former bureaucrat Jayaprakash Narayana is now at the proposed metro rail extension conceived by the State government in the capital Hyderabad city.

Chief Minister Mr K Chandrashekhar Rao is known for his revolutionary decisions and bold moves to turn the state into a jewel among the states in the country. His latest decision is to ensure that metro rail connectivity is available to all people in all corners of the city. It entails huge finances and time taking. But he did not budge and had taken a decision.

But Mr Jayaprakash dismisses it stating that metro rail extension is not necessary. The existing bus services are more than enough for the city people. Time and again, he is seen venting out his animosity toward Telangana and its people. Can anyone in the civilised world oppose the public transport system where the cities witness massive migration and enormous growth? Only he should answer.

He forgot the fact that 70 per cent of the revenue of the country accrues from six to seven cities in the country and Hyderabad city is prominent among them. It needs to upgrade itself to accommodate the growing population. He also forgot the saying that one should be Roman while in Rome and goes on spitting venom on the city in which he lives.

Following his remarks against the metro rail extension project, the netizens took to social media to describe Jayaprakash Narayan as a hollow person and self-styled intellectual. He has no business but to hog the limelight by criticising the BRS government. “How can this intellectual forget the fact that every city needs to plan for future requirements of population and change accordingly,” the netizens wondered.
