Jamshedpur, Feb 12: As the last rail budget of UPA 2 was presented at Lok Sabha on Wednesday Feb 12, the people of Jharkhand had nothing to cheer about and the state was totally ignored. Responding to the rail budget, MP of Jamshedpur Dr. Ajay Kumar talking over the phone said that it is totally disappointing and election budget.
But for the people of Jamshedpur, who had laid several demands of which one of the demands of Tata-Chakulia passenger train was introduced and we thank the railways for it, added Dr. Ajay.
Dr. Ajay further said that with the introduction of new passenger train people living in Chakulia, Dhalbhumgarh, Ghatshila, Galudih, Govindpur and other nearby rural areas will now have no problems travelling to Jamshedpur.
Dr. Ajay said that when the next budget is presented after the Lok Sabha elections we will press for our demands and would want all the requests to be accepted. Our major demands include Janshatabdi trains between Tatanagar-Jaipur-Ajmer, Tata-Jaynagar, Tata-Bhagalpur, Tata-Patna.
New trains between Tata-Hydrebad and increase trips of Tatanagar-Yashwanthpur express, Shalimar Express, stoppage of Utkal express in Rakhamines station, make Tata-Chhapra express superfast, increase wagon in local trains, to make stop Kurla express in Dhalbhumgarh Station and several other demands should be implemented.
