IT and MAUD minister KT Rama Rao on Sunday lashed out at AICC chief Rahul Gandhi who criticised that TRS party increased the project cost in the pretext of redesigning it.
In a series of tweets, KTR exposed the Kaleshwaram project cost during the Congress rule and TRS rule.
The minister said that it was during the Congress regime the cost of the project has been revised three times from an initial cost of Rs 17,875 crore to Rs 38,500 crore and then to Rs 40,300 crore. KTR also said that the present cost of Kaleshwaram project is Rs 80,190 and not Rs 1 lakh crore as Rahul alleged of.

Another blatant lie that your script writers made you mouth yesterday @RahulGandhi Ji was that the cost of Kaleshwaram has been escalated to 1 lakh Cr!!— KTR (@KTRTRS) October 21, 2018

KTR also made it clear that the project cost enhanced in the TRS rule as the storage capacity of the project has been increased from 16 TMC to 160 TMC along with additional barrages and three pump houses.
With 10 times more storage capacity (16 TMC to 160 TMC), 3 additional barrages & 3 pump houses & increased cost of relief & rehabilitation coupled with cost escalation over 8 years will the cost not go up @RahulGandhi Ji?— KTR (@KTRTRS) October 21, 2018
Do you not see cost escalations in Karnataka projects?2/2
