Harish Rao chopper force lands at Hakimpet

Hyderabad: Heavy rains forced the chopper carrying Irrigation Minister T Harish Rao to land at Hakimpet Air Force Station on Monday evening.

Harish Rao, who was returning from Khammam in a chopper after inaugurating the Palemvagu Medium Iirrigation Project, was to land at Begumpet Airport.

The helicopter hovered over Begumpet Airport for a few minutes before the Air Traffic Controller at Begumpet diverted it and gave clearance to land the chopper at Hakimpet Airbase.

Due to sudden downpour and poor visibility, the chopper landed at Hakimpet. The minister reached home by road from Hakimpet.
