Hyderabad: Union Minister of State for Home Affairs G Kishan Reddy on Sunday said the Centre does not have any plans to declare Hyderabad as the second capital of the country.
In the wake of reports that the Centre was contemplating to make Hyderabad as nation's second capital, Kishan Reddy stated the Union government was ready to discuss any issues raised by the opposition parties in the winter session of the Parliament commencing from Monday.
Addressing the media here on Monday, Kishan Reddy said the Centre had successfully introduced and passed the much talked about Triple Talaq and Article 370 Bills. He said the Centre would put before the Parliament about its plans for development of the country.
He also mentioned the main objective of the Union government was to provide safe drinking water, quality education and healthcare to all the people in the country.
Commenting on the conferment of national status to Polavaram irrigation project of Andhra Pradesh State, Kishan Reddy said they have already announced national status to the project and added that they would complete the process in the days to come.
On granting national status to Kaleshwaram lift irrigation project, Reddy made it clear that neither the previous Congress government nor the present BJP government had promised to confer national status on it.
Kishan Reddy asked Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao as to why he did not force the previous government to include national status to Kaleshwaram project in the AP Reorganisation Act.
