Hyderabad: It hasn’t been 20 days since 26-year-old Mounika took refuge under Ameerpet metro station from the heavy rains and died when a plaster broke off from the wall and fell on her. Now, the twitter handle of the MD of HMRL shared an image of a surface wall crack at the Prakashnagar metro station after rectifications.

The dreadful death of the young woman had raised a lot of questions about the project, which authorities claim has been done using top quality materials. The 1,600-crore project is barely two years old, and yet Mounika died from negligence, and there are still wall surface cracks at various metro stations. These incidents have brought the officials of Hyderabad Metro Rail under the radar. The situation becomes crucial, considering the fact that it was the MD who shared the image.
The tweet also comes after KT Rama Rao, Minister of Municipal Administration and Urban Development, instructed authorities to investigate the stations using independent engineering experts thoroughly.
Only time will tell how Hyderabad Metro Rail authorities will make changes after the unfortunate and dreadful death of Mounika and the negligence at two metro stations.
