Union Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw affirmed on Monday that the Central government has dedicated a substantial sum of Rs. 6,080 crore for the advancement of Tamil Nadu's railway sector in the past year. Comparing this allocation to the period before 2014 when the UPA government was in power, Vaishnaw highlighted a significant increase from the previous allocation of only 879 crores for Tamil Nadu.
Prime Minister Modi's administration has prioritized railway development in Tamil Nadu, with ongoing projects making notable progress. As part of this initiative, 75 stations in the state are undergoing redevelopment to achieve world-class standards.
Addressing the longstanding demand for the Hosur Jolarpet inter-rail service project, Vaishnaw assured that a comprehensive assessment is underway, and work will commence soon after evaluating cost efficiency. The project involves the construction of a tunnel, and the government is actively seeking efficient solutions to expedite the commencement. Vaishnaw expressed his commitment to monitor progress every 15 days and ensure the completion of the Detailed Project Report (DPR) for necessary sanctions.
Additionally, plans are in place for the development of a multi-modal cargo terminal in the Hosur area, aiming to provide industries with optimal logistic solutions and foster employment growth.
Union Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw later embarked on a train journey from Hosur to Bengaluru, accompanied by a significant number of BJP cadres and officials, including former MP Narasimhan and Tamil Nadu BJP West District President Nagaraj. During the journey, representatives of the railway passengers' association presented petitions to the minister, outlining various demands and concerns.
