Hyderabad: Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao has asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi to set up Hyderabad-Nagpur Industrial corridor to promote the economic development of the region

In the meeting that lasted for 50 Minutes, the CM requested the PM to solve several issues pertaining to the state. The CM submitted a list of 10 demands to the PM.

KCR asked the Centre to review IPS cadre, set up integrated Textile Park, develop Hyderabad-Nagpur Industrial Corridor, establish Navodaya Schools in all the new districts, release additional funds for the PM Garmin Sadak Yojana, take up road works in the Maoist dominated regions, strengthening PM Sadak Yojana Programme, set up IIIT in Karimnagar, IIM in Hyderabad, and Tribal University in the state.

In a memorandum, submitted to the Prime Minister in Delhi, KCR proposed an Industrial corridor between Hyderabad and Nagpur on the line of Delhi-Mumbai corridor, covering a length of 585 km with the end terminals at Nagpur and Hyderabad.

"The project aims to exploit the central location of Nagpur which is proposed as a Multi-modal International Cargo Hub and Hyderabad, which is a major IT and manufacturing destination, the CM said. The proposed corridor will be designed to be connected through high-speed passenger and freight rail connectivity between Hyderabad and Nagpur and also by six/eight laning of the existing National Highway (NH)-44 between Hyderabad and Nagpur, he said. The Project immediate influence area is well connected by air and the existing and proposed Bity Gas Distribution (CGD) network lines will e an added advantage for the HNIC," KCR said in the memorandum.

The Project influence area of HNIC comprises a combined population of 40 million, constituting approximately 27 per cent of total population of both Telangana and Maharashtra states.

"These regions are proposed to be self-sustained industrial townships with world-class infrastructure, road and rail connectivity for freight movement to and from logistics hubs, served by domestic/International air connectivity, reliable power, quality social infrastructure and provide a globally competitive environment conducive for setting up businesses," he said.

On similar lines, the Telangana government is also keen to develop the Warangal-Hyderabad Industrial Corridor (WHIC). The sector will be covered with the existing rail line from Nagpur to Hyderabad and road link from Hyderabad to Bhupalapatnam through an ongoing National Highway project, the chief minister said.

Meanwhile, KCR also requested the PM to allot land for constructing `Telangana Bhavan' in New Delhi.

The CM invited PM to the inauguration of the Yadadri temple. KCR told the PM that the inauguration of the renovated Yadadri temple would be held in October or November. The PM responded positively and assured to attend the inaugural function.
