Hyderabad, February 26 : When Lalu Prasad Yaadav was Railway minister it was Bihar all the way. When Mamta Namerjee was the minister it was a Bengal budget. But when Congressmen took guard, it is nobody’s budget as it appears.
Though a couple of projects went to Haryana and Kurnool, represented by Railway Minister Pavan Kumar Bansal and his deputy Kotal Suryaprakash Reddy, nothing noteworthy took place for the State. There were lot of expectations from the Kurnool MP but nothing concrete came out. There was no mention of pending projects in his home district.
Barring one express train from Kurnool to Hyderabad and a passenger train from Kurnool to Nandyal, the MP from Kurnool could not muster any further support. Railway Wagons workshop is one project that would be coming up in Kurnool.
Other proposals like changing the name of the railway station to Kurnool city rail station, train to Mantralayam, extension of reservation counter, escalator and other facilities did not see the light of the day. INN
