On Friday the legislators pop in Gunpark memorial and began taking survey across the road near Akashavani building where the pillars have already been laid. CM KCR stated that Lakdikapul Ravindra Bharati Akashvani Old Control Room will not be afflicted.
“If the alignment is changed and the Metro line is diverted behind the Assembly buildings, it will pass close to another historic building, the alignment change will increase the burden on the govt by few thousand crores. That money can be spent on new routes for the Metro Rail services,” said Congress MLA Mallu Bhatti Vikramarka.
The other Congress legislators Makam Rangareddy, M.S. Prabhakar (MLCs) and T. Rammohan Reddy had said there seems to be a hook up behind the CM’s statement about the likely damages to Assembly buildings on account of the Metro, without any scientific survey suggesting the same. It is better that the government sticks to the existing line and allows L&T to continue the work,” they added.
