Ujjain : Congress leaders unanimously flayed the first railway budget of the Modi government while, most ironically, the BJP leaders did not come in public even to give their reactions here on Tuesday.
The BJP-led NDA government and regional leaders fulfilled their promise for conducting a survey for Ujjain-Jhalawar-Agar-Susner-Sonyat (updating) track. The local passengers also got a facility to visit the Vaishnodevi Temple with the introduction of weekly train in the form of Indore-Jammu Tawi Express. Likewise, crossing of Bandra to Jaipur Express (weekly) via Nagda, Kota and Rajkot–Rewa Express (weekly) will also benefit the local people. Meanwhile, former Member of Parliament Premchand Guddu stated that the Railways have neglected the region, in general, and Ujjain in particular in view of Simhastha Fair-2016 as no trains have been introduced. Corporator and State Women Congress former spokesperson Maya Trivedi reacted that the Rail Budget will add to the woe of the people. Congress leader Vivek Yadav termed the provision of bullet trains as a gimmick.
