Andhra Pradesh feels ignored in Railway Budget 2009

AP gets single new train, expected projects goes untouched


Congress MPs from the State and the entire Opposition complained on Friday that the state has not got its due attention in the Railway Budget 2009 presented by the Union Minister for Railways, Mamatha Banerjee. The Chief Minister Dr Reddy expressed strong displeasure over the budget reluctant to react. The biggest disappointment for the State is the non inclusion of the Multi Modal Transport System Phase II linking the State Capital to the International Airport at Shamshabad as also the Centre's refusal to locate the Integral Coach Factory at Kazipet.

The Congress MPs of the State in New Delhi lamented that the Railway Minister had sanctioned just one new train in the Budget. The MPs who did not want to be named said when compared to Karnataka and Kerala, what Andhra Pradesh got in terms of new trains was very poor. Visakhapatnam-Secunderabad-Mumbai bi-weekly super fast was the only train out of 57 new trains announced by the Minister.

The Chief Minister, Dr.YS Rajasekhara Reddy discussed the Railway Budget with T Stanley Babu, advisor, Urban Transportation and other senior officials. SCR officials maintained that though the budget outlay for the zone was not encouraging, it was not too bad either. They pointed out that outlay of Rs.3,092 crore was nearly Rs.350 crores more than the last year. However, detailed estimates had to be awaited before drawing further conclusions.
