Union Minister Dharmendra Pradhan on Thursday said that Odisha’s Khurda-Balangir railway line is an important railway project and is expected to be completed in two years.
“Since more than 30 years this project has been not completed. The Modi government has allotted full cost for this project but the State government is unable to provide land for the same. We expect that the state govt will provide land this year and the project will be completed in 2 years,” Pradhan told .
Pradhan met East Coast Railways General Manager Sri Umesh Singh and other senior officers here. Balangir ex MP Sangeeta Singhdeo and MLA K V Singhdeo were also present with the Balangir citizen committee members. Read More
