Karimnagar replaces Hyd in Smart Cities list
The Centre on Thursday replaced Hyderabad with Karimnagar in the Smart Cities list.
It may be recalled when the Centre announced inclusion of Warangal and Hyderabad in the Smart Cities project earlier, the Telangana government said the Rs 100 crore fund that is given to develop a city into a `Smart’ one was not enough for Hyderabad.The state then asked the Centre to include Karimnagar instead.
An elated Karimnagar MP B Vinod Kumar welcomed the Centre’s decision. Thanking the Union urban development ministry, he said chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao’s efforts to develop Karimnagar had received a much-needed fillip.
