Dr. Tamilisai Soundararajan, Hon’ble Governor, Telangana State; Shri G. Kishan Reddy, Hon’ble Union Minister of Culture, Tourism and Development of North Eastern region; Shri Bhagwanth Khuba, Hon’ble Union Minister of State for Chemicals and Fertilizers, New and Renewable Energy, Govt of India; Shri Sanjay Kumar Bandi, Hon’ble MP, Karimnagar also graced the occasion. Shri Arun Kumar Jain, General Manager, South Central Railway; Shri A.K Gupta, Divisional Railway Manager, Secunderabad Division and other senior Railway officials were also present o­n the occasion.

Speaking o­n the occasion, Shri Narendra Modi, Hon’ble Prime Minister of India stated that today is a very important day for the people of Telangana State as several key developmental projects with a cost of Rs. 10,000 crore are being dedicated to the service of the Nation. He stated that in the past 8 years, the NDA Government has undertaken several initiatives for all-round development of the Country and this has paved the way for India to soon become the 3rd largest economy in the world.

Further, the Hon’ble Prime Minister informed that under the PM Gati Shakti National plan Rail, Road, Air, Water and Internet connectivity is being enhanced across India. Towards this initiative, the Hon’ble Prime Minister informed that special focus was given to the Bhadrachalam Road – Sattupalli New Railway Line project by including it in the list of fourteen very important coal evacuating projects in the country. The efforts have enabled commissioning of the new railway line project along with electrification in a span of less than 4 years. In tune with the priority of our government to ensure socio economic development of backward and tribal regions, this new railway line is bound to herald significant progress and prosperity of the region through which it is passing, he added.

Shri Narendra Modi informed that the New Railway line project will aid in the development of Bhadradri Kothagudem and Khammam districts in Telangana state. The Railway line will provide a safe, fast and economic mode of transportation for the people and industry and will also create new job opportunities for the youth, he added.

Speaking o­n the occasion, Shri G. Kishan Reddy, Hon’ble Minister stated that the Central Government is committed to the development of Telangana State and is taking several initiatives in this regard. He informed that the Government has undertaken widening of 3 National Highways in Telangana State with an estimated cost of Rs 2,268 crore between Medak – Siddipet – Elkathurthy; Bodhan – Basar – Bhainsa and Sironcha – Mahadevpur sections. Further, the Hon’ble Minister informed that ESI Hospital is sanctioned for Ramagundam.

Shri Arun Kumar Jain, General Manager, SCR gave a brief presentation to the Hon’ble Prime Minister explaining the salient features of Bhadrachalam Road – Sattupalli New Railway line project.

The Bhadrachalam Road – Sattupalli Railway line will also help in completely eliminating road transport from the mines to the rail loading terminal, mitigating the problem associated with transportation of coal by roadways. Coal can now be directly transported from the railway terminal at the open cast mine, through coal received from the conveyors. With coal reserves of more than 200 MTs, the project is likely to help transport coal by railway over the next 30 years. The new line section consists of 10 Major Bridges, 37 Minor Bridges, 40 Road Under Bridges and 07 Road Over Bridges.
