HYDERABAD: Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao has urged Union minister of state for labour and employment Bandaru Dattatreya to see that funds from the Central government are released to the state at the earliest.

Rao met Dattatreya in Delhi on Thursday on his second day of visit and submitted a list of pending projects.

Rao told the Union minister that they should work beyond politics for the state’s development. As Prime Minister Narendra Modi laid the foundation for a fertiliser plant at Ramagundam in Karimnagar district, the Centre should see that work on it began at the earliest. Rao also wanted Dattatreya to see that the second instalment of funds for the backward districts is released speedily.

Dattatreya assured that he would speak with the authorities concerned and resolve the matters.

Later, the chief minister called on home minister Rajnath Singh and thanked him for sanctioning Rs 1,290 crore for construction of a highway along Godavari river, which will pass through Khammam, Warangal, Karimnagar and Adilabad districts.

Rao sought release of Rs 300 crore under the Rural Road Plan (RRP) for construction of roads in Adilabad and Karimnagar districts. The proposed Kaleshwaram-Arjun Gutta, Racharla-Vemanapalli, Somini-Gudem and Gudem-Babasagar roads, and a bridge on the Godavari near Kaleshwaram will all come up in the forest area.
