Kharge unhappy with slow pace of railway works in Hyderabad-Karnataka

He appeals to the Railway Ministry to speed up works that are under way

M. Mallikarjun Kharge, Leader of the Congress in the Lok Sabha, has expressed discontent over the slow pace of railway works in the Hyderabad-Karnataka region.


Addressing a press conference at Aiwan-E-Shahi guest house in Kalaburagi on Monday, he appealed to the Union Railway Ministry to continue working on the initiatives he had taken during his brief tenure as Union Railway Minister and to speed up the works that are under way.
“In order to develop railway infrastructure in the Hyderabad-Karnataka region, I, as Union Railway Minister, had taken many initiatives such as opening a railway divisional office in Kalaburagi, laying of tracks between the Bidar and Kalaburagi stretch and the Wadi and Gadag stretch, electrification of railway tracks, and construction of railway over-bridges at several level-crossings at Wadi. While a few of these are yet to take off despite having budgetary allocations, the rest seem to be moving at a snail’s pace,” Mr. Kharge said.
He added that the issue of scarcity of sand that had delayed tunnel work on the Kalaburagi-Bidar railway stretch had been resolved by involving both the Kalaburagi Regional Commissioner and the Raichur Deputy Commissioner who would facilitate quality sand extraction from Raichur district. “I hope the work will be completed by September,” he said.
Highlighting the statutory issues involved in procurement of gravel required for track-doubling works, Mr. Kharge said that he had talked to the others concerned for facilitating hassle-free procurement. “As per the new rules, permission is required for gravel mining. Upon my direction, the Regional Commissioner has asked the contractor to collect gravel from government land and only then approach private ones if a sufficient quantity is not available in the former source,” he said.




Link road


Mr. Kharge said that a sum of ₹300 crore, of the sanctioned ₹1,100 crore, was already released by the Union government for the construction of the proposed link road around Kalaburagi to connect two National Highways – 150E and 150A.
The proposed link road will form the Outer Ring Road after the stretch between Afzalpur Road (NH-150E) and Jevarge Road (NH-150A) that is not included in the project is constructed. “We have been given the green signal to prepare a detailed project report for the leftover stretch between Afzalpur Road and Jevargi Road. Once both the projects are completed, Kalaburagi will get another ring road,” Mr. Kharge said.

I beg to differ.

Many projects even in Karnataka which were languishing even during Kharge's time as railway minister have been completed or close to completion (SBC-DMM electrification, Shravanabelagola line, SBC-MYS doubling/electrification, etc.) Pune-Guntakal doubling/electrification which impacts cities in the state and will improve connectivity between Southern and Hyderabad-Karnataka areas is also progressing at a faster pace.

Key difference - earlier many projects were announced but funding was not secured. Right now Suresh Prabhu is securing funding via loans from LIC, etc. which is making a big difference on the ground.

No doubt compared to some states in the North and West, Karnataka is behind in development of railways. This is lamentable because many railway ministers in the past were from Karnataka (Jaffer Sharief, Kharge, Sadananda Gowda, etc.), but the state still did not get its fair share.
