    In New Delhi, Chief Minister A Revanth Reddy met with Union Minister for Road Transport and National Highways Nitin Gadkari to discuss improving connectivity between Telangana and Andhra Pradesh. Revanth requested that the Hyderabad-Vijayawada National Highway (NH-65) be expanded to six lanes to address the increasing road accidents and traffic congestion on the busy highway.

    Revanth expressed concern over the delay in completing the six-lane project, which was supposed to be finished by April 2024. He emphasized the need for immediate action due to the high volume of vehicles traveling between the two state capitals each day.
