At level crossings on the Vikarabad-Hyderabad road, at least 10,000 vehicle riders are facing troubles.

Mahender Reddy who went to Delhi recently had to return as he could not meet the Railway Minister. With the Lok Sabha session under progress, the Minister again left for Delhi on Wednesday along with some MPs from the state and submitted a memorandum to Piyush seeking funds for building RoBs in Tandur, Vikarabad and Ranga Reddy district.
