    On Friday, K.T.Rama Rao, the Minister for municipal administration and urban development in Telangana, met with union defence minister Rajnath Singh in Delhi. KTR gave a memorandum to the union minister asking for defence lands to be given over for the construction of flyovers, skywalks, link roads, and road widening in the city.

    KTR also asked for the Secunderabad Cantonment Board (SCB) to be merged with GHMC and requested that the process be expedited. The HMDA has already started building a skywalk at Rythu Bazar, Mehdipatnam, but it needs 0.51 acres of defence land.
