    Hyderabad: Telangana Chief Minister A Revanth Reddy emphasized the importance of developing the Old City, also known as ‘Real Hyderabad’. He credited the earlier Congress governments for bringing various development projects to the city such as the International Airport, Outer Ring Road, drinking water from Krishna and Godavari rivers, IT, Pharma companies, and now the Metro.

    Revanth Reddy laid the foundation stone for the Old City Metro Rail at an estimated cost of Rs 2,000 crores at Farooq Nagar Bus Depot in Falaknuma. The project will cover a 5.5 km stretch from MGBS to Falaknuma as part of corridor II Green Line JBS to Falaknuma.

    Asaduddin Owaisi, Hyderabad MP and AIMIM chief, supported the Metro rail project and urged Revanth Reddy to travel on the Metro Rail to Falaknuma before 2028. He also requested the Chief Minister to undertake certain infrastructural developments in the city for the next five years.

    Shabbir Ali, Telangana state minority advisory, expressed joy among the people of the Old City for finally getting a Metro rail after years of delay.

    The project is expected to affect around 1100 properties due to road widening and shifting of utilities. The total cost of the project is estimated to be around Rs.2,000 Cr, including expenses for road widening and station development. The line will be extended further by another 1.5 km from Falaknuma to Chandrayangutta, which will serve as a major interchange station on the newly planned Airport line.
