WESTERN RAILWAY General Manager Rajkamal Rao has assured that they would not neglect Indore and its citizens. Rao gave this assurance during a meeting with the Zonal Railway Users Consultative Committee yesterday. He assured that the Western Railway would bring more rail facilities soon for Indore.

Committee member Ajay Sengar submitted a memorandum to Rao demanding new trains and electrification of Indore=Ujjain rail route etc. Rao answered that the primary issue was the delay in scheduled arrival of trains. This problem would be taken care of by the government, he said.

Sengar mentioned about the demand regarding broad gauge line between Indore and Khandwa. He said Pithampur needed to be connected to rail route, as it was the largest industrial area of Asia. Rao told Sengar and Association of Industries Madhya Pradesh president Manohar Jhurani to hold discussions with industrialists of Pithampur in this regard.

Rao further said that Indore station would be extended and modernised as soon as possible. Ratlam Division Manager Jain informed Rao about the blockades in the tender procedures. Rao said that the government would extend complete support for development of Indore railway station. Nagesh Namjoshi, Nasir Khan, Kamlesh Khandelwal, Yogesh and Ishmit Singh Bhatia participated in the meeting.
