“Medak will be connected with entire nation with this railway service. I do salute farmers who sacrificed their lands for the railway project. Secunderabad railway station will be developed with ₹ 653 crore and works would be commenced next month. It will be like an airport. The works of Charlapally terminal are under progress and would be completed by December 2023,” said Mr. Kishan Reddy adding that from the time of late Prime Minister Indira Gandhi represented the Medak constituency people had been demanding establishment of railway station. He also promised to establish a ticket counter at Chegunta
