1 Month of Metro: Hyderabad Metro Rail MD, N.V.S.Reddy press meet
Hyderabad Metro Rail (HMR) managing director, N.V.S. Reddy, said that despite numerous hurdles, including political, HMR has come into being since last month. It was inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on November 28th. Since then, at least 32 lakh people have travelled by metro, Reddy said. The average passenger strength will stabilise gradually, he added. An ultra modern parking module is coming up at metro stations, he revealed. One great advantage that was achieved through metro was that encroachments on government and private land were removed, he noted.
