HYDERABAD: Disputing with Congress’s claim that HMRL project was its brainchild, TDP said that the proposal to construct Metro in Hyderabad to ease traffic congestion in the twin cities was first put forward by the then chief minister of erstwhile Andhra Pradesh, N Chandrababu Naidu, way back in 2003.

“Naidu requested the erstwhile NDA government at the Centre to sanction Metro Rail to Hyderabad in 2003. Because of Naidu’s efforts, Hyderabad Multi-Modal Transport System (MMTS) was sanctioned for Hyderabad first and later Metro Rail was approved,” party politburo member Ravula Chandrasekhar Reddy said. “Both TDP and TRS are giving false impressions,” he added.
