Earlier last week, Union Home and Cooperation Minister Amit Shah had inaugurated the High Level Platform, Booking Counter, Railway Under Bridge at Chandlodia Railway Station. Inauguration and foundation stone laying of various development works of Western Railway
The Gujarat government had earlier announced the introduction of high speed rail between Ahmedabad and Rajkot by laying a new railway along the existing national highway. Also, the previous Gujarat government had announced the introduction of local city trains on railway lines around Ahmedabad. Modi government in Gujarat has not done anything about it, it has not planned by allocating money. Central government, Gujarat government, Amit Shah, Narendra Modi are not saying anything about this.
In such a situation, the question has arisen whether there will be two big projects for the general public. In contrast, only rich people are spending Rs 1 lakh crore to start a superfast bullet train that bears a fare of Rs 15,000. In which 98 percent of the population of Gujarat or Maharashtra cannot sit.
Union Home and Cooperation Minister Amit Shah inaugurated a high level platform, booking counter, railway under bridge at Chandlodia railway station. Inaugurated and laid the foundation stone for various development works of Western Railway.
“There is no railway gate anywhere in Chandlodiya,” Shah said. The work of upgradation of Chandlodia platform at a cost of Rs.2 crore has also been completed. The estimated cost at Sabarmati Railway Station is Rs. The construction of a bridge under the road and a waiting room for passengers at a cost of Rs.15 crore will cost about Rs. It has been prepared at a cost of Rs 1.5 crore. A foot over bridge will be built in Chandlodia to go from one platform to another. Underbridges will be built at three places at a cost of Rs 18 crore. In the last three years, three railway crossings were removed as overbridges or underpasses in 2019-20, four railway crossings in 2020-21 and three railway crossings in 2021-22. Thus, in the last three years, 10 railway underpasses or overbridges have been constructed to free the area from railway crossings. 10 trains will be standing. 33 crore works of Railway Department have been completed in Chandlodia.
Shri Shah said that the development of railways in Gujarat is happening uninterruptedly. In the period 2009-14, during the tenure of the previous government, Rs 590 crore was spent annually for railways in Gujarat. In the 8 years from 2014 to 2022, an average of Rs. Four thousand crores has been given. Gandhinagar will be the most developed Lok Sabha constituency in the country. C
