KTR Meets Rajnath, Seeks Transfer Of Defence Land To Take Up SRDP Works
Hyderabad, Oct.30 (Maxim News): Municipal Administration & Urban Development Minister KT Rama Rao on Wednesday urged Defence Minister Rajnath Singh to expedite the transfer of 39.40 acre Defence land to the State government so that works under the Strategic Road Development Plan could be taken up.
Rama Rao, who met with Rajnath Singh in New Delhi and submitted a memorandum seeking the Defence land, said: “As part of the Prime Minister’s vision to improve the road network to boost economic development of the nation, Telangana State government has taken up SRDP which includes, inter alia, improvement of the Nagpur-Hyderabad sector on National Highway 44 with an 11km elevated corridor which requires 39.40 acre of Defence land along NH-44.”
Stating that this would also improve connectivity between Nagpur and Hyderabad, KTR pointed out that it would also benefit the Secunderabad Cantonment area by completely decongesting it. Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao had, in a letter to the Defence Minister dated May 2, 2017, requested the Centre to transfer the Defence land, but no orders had been received till now, he said.
