Chief minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy on Wednesday said if railways did not improve their efficiency levels and provide better amenities to passengers, the pressure for privatisation will increase.
Inaugurating four new express trains from Sec’bad and Hyderabad on Wednesday, the chief minister requested the railway minister to provide adequate rakes for transportation of fertilisers, coal and paddy.
The state government is ready to provide funds, he said.
As the government agreed to release two-thirds of funds for Multi Modal Transportation System (MMTS), the CM wanted the railways to take up the works.
Muniyappa said railways will complete works if govt release funds.
