Another example for the cordial relations between the state and Centre is beginning of works of Manoharabad – Kothapalli railway line.

The PM laid foundation stone also for this, KCR explained. The Prime Minister promised to expedite the works of construction of NTPC power plants, when he laid the foundation stone for the first phase projects, he said.
