HYDERABAD: Amid rising political temperatures in the state, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is all set to inaugurate and dedicate to the nation several development works to the tune of 11,355 crore on April 8. He will also address a public meeting at Parade Ground in Secunderabad.

Apart from flagging off the Secunderabad-Tirupati Vande Bharat Express from Secunderabad railway station, he would also perform ‘bhumi puja’ for the redevelopment and modernization of the Secunderabad station at a cost of 715 crore.

Modi would also inaugurate the doubling work on the Secunderabad-Mahabubnagar railway line at a cost of 1,410 crore, launch 13 new MMTS Phase-II services, as a part of the MMTS Phase-II between Bolarum-Medchal and Falaknuma-Umdanagar, perform ‘bhumi puja’ for six national highway projects to be constructed at an estimated cost of 7,864 crore and various development works at AIIMS, Bibinagar, at a cost of 1,366 crore.

The PM’s visit assumes significance as this would be his first visit to the state after chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao’s daughter and MLC K Kavitha’s name cropped up in the Delhi excise policy case and Congress leader Rahul Gandhi was disqualified from the Lok Sabha.

Modi had addressed a party meeting at Begumpet airport in November last. The war of words between BJP and BRS (then TRS) became intense at that time and the PM had stated then that: “If dreams of people of Telangana are shattered, the tables will be turned (‘lene ke dene pad jayenge’) and those who are pillaging Telangana will not be spared.”

A flexi war between the two rival parties also peaked at that time. During the PM’s visit, there were protests in the city and several posters surfaced with the slogan “Go back Modi”.
