Rail budget disappointing: Raman Singh
Raipur: Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Raman Singh Tuesday termed the rail budget "highly disappointing" while opposition leaders called it "balanced and growth-oriented".
Talking to reporters in the state assembly, Raman Singh, heading the BJP government in the state, said it was a highly disappointing rail budget in which Chhattisgarh has been neglected.
"The people of Chhattisgarh had a lot of expectations from the budget because the state comes under a high-revenue generation region for the railways but the expectations were let down," he said.
When his attention was drawn to the new rail corridors provisioned for the state, he said: "These were actually state government projects, not of the railways."
But state Congress president Nandkumar Patel said: "It`s balanced, growth-oriented and people`s friendly as passenger fares has been left untouched and several new rail lines and surveys for new projects have been incorporated for Chhattisgarh".
