Larsen & Toubro (L&T)  Wednesday said it is committed to completing the Hyderabad Metro rail project expeditiously as per schedule with all support from the Telangana government.

After a meeting with Chief Secretary Rajiv Sharma, L&T Metro Rail (Hyderabad) Limited (LTMRHL) chief executive and managing director V.B. Gadgil said it was unfortunate that a section of media choose to publish a letter written by him to the government in a manner which could be damaging for this very prestigious project.

Stating that the correspondence between the two parties is quite normal for a massive project of this nature, Gadgil urged the media to show restraint on such selective disclosure without proper context.

He said the Sep 10 letter is a part of the long correspondence between L&T and the then government of Andhra Pradesh and now with government of Telangana.

"The progress so far is the fastest in the metro sector in the country in spite of various challenges met during execution," said a statement by LTMRHL.

Earlier, Telangana government officials said the project is on track and that L&T has not threatened to pull out.

Gadgil's meeting with the chief secretary came after Hyderabad Metro Rail (HMR) managing director N.V.S. Reddy called on Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao and the chief secretary.

HMR is a Telangana government agency while LTMRHL is a concessionaire developing 72-km long elevated Metro project at a cost of Rs.14,132 crore.
