"The 76 km long Manoharabad-Siddipet rail line will boost the socio-economic development of the region, especially in the districts of Medak and Siddipet," it said.

      "The electrification project between Dharmabad - Manoharabad and Mahabubnagar - Kurnool will help in improving average speed of trains and will lead to environment-friendly rail transport in the region. Prime Minister will also flag off Siddipet - Secunderabad - Siddipet train service, benefiting the local rail commuters in the region," it added.
