Construction major Larsen & Toubro, which is currently building the prestigious Hyderabad metro rail project, has reportedly said that it is still waiting to be officially informed about proposals over realignment of the project. An official release was issued recently by the chief minister’s office after the meeting between L&T chairman AM Naik and Telangana CM K Chandrasekhar Rao on Saturday, where it is being said that L&T chairman had consented for changing the alignment of the metro rail close to the legislative assembly building, Sultan Bazar and in the Old City region.
L&T had previously expressed concerns that the project is becoming unviable due to the downturn in the real estate market in Hyderabad, and this was present in the letter, which according to media, was allegedly leaked by L&T. But now A M Naik has reportedly emphasized that L&T letter dated September 17, 2014 wasn’t leaked by L&T to the media. The question doing the rounds is if the company didn’t leak it, who leaked it!
