Naik tendered an “unqualified apology” for the confusion created by the letter and agreed to change the alignment of the project according to the CM’s and MLA’s wishes to protect sites of heritage like mosques and temples. According to a report in the Times of India, KCR blamed the Andhra media for using the letter to cause confusion.  He also claimed that the AP media wanted to “derail” progress in Telangana. “We have been cooperating at all levels with the company for the metro rail project and its progress has become much faster after the TRS government came to power” Chandrasekhar Rao told Naik. The meeting was also attended by the company representatives and other top government officials.
