TRS trying to get undue credit over NH sanctioned to Warangal

Hanamkonda: BJP Warangal Rural district president Edla Ashok Reddy has objected the Minister, T Nageshwar Rao’s claiming of credit over sanctioning of two national highways sanctioned by the Centre to Warangal district.
Referring to the Minister’s reported statement that the highways were sanctioned to the district because of the efforts put up by the TRS government and the Chief Minister, K Chandrashekar Rao, the BJP leader said the statement was unmerited.
It might be noted that the Central government has sanctioned Rs 690 crore for two four-lane highways. The first one covering 70-kilometre stretch connects Warangal and Mahabubabad via Rangashaipet, Chintanekkonda, Nekkonda and Kesamudram. The second one with 130-kilometre stretch connects Bhupalpally and Karimnagar via Aushanpally, Gorlaveedu, Neredpally, Emped, Vavilala, Jammikunta and Veenavanka. The newly sanctioned highways would greatly help towards development of Warangal district, the BJP leader said.
Ashok Reddy speaking to presspersons in Hanamkonda on Wednesday asserted that the highways were sanctioned by the Centre following the efforts made by the district BJP leaders during the past six months.
The leaders from the district have met the union road transport, highways and shipping minister Nitin Gadkari several times and submitted representations to sanction the roads to ensure better road connectivity in the district.
“We went to New Delhi to meet the union ministers spending our personal money. But the TRS leaders, who did nothing, are trying to claim credit. Does Minister Nageshwar Rao know where the above roads are?” Ashok Reddy pointed out.
Similarly, proposals related to 40 developmental projects in Warangal district were submitted and many were sanctioned. Because of such efforts the Centre sanctioned the four-lane road from Bhongir to Warangal, projects like AMRUT, HRUDAY and others.
Even as the Centre sanctioned Cotton Research Centre to Warangal. But the TRS government has failed to allocate land required for the purpose. On the other hand, the party leaders, who never cared about facilities for people in the district, were twisting the facts to get undue credit, the BJP leader alleged.
