The Prime Minister will also flag-off the inaugural MMTS Train Service from Ghatkesar – Lingampalli via Moula Ali – Sanathnagar.

The safe, fast and economic mode of transport connecting the eastern with the western part of the twin city region will be highly beneficial for commuters, officials said.
