The Sabari rail project is moving on the right direction and will be completed in near future, Joice George, MP, has said.
He said with the allocation of Rs. 213 crore, including the Rs. 100 crore budget proposal and Rs. 113 crore extra-budget allocation, the project received a shot in the arm.

A slew of reasons
First and most importantly it will harm the untouched beauty of idukki and Pathanamthitta districts of Kerala. Don't even think those places are under developed. Idukki is the first E district and cyber district in India.. I want true development not concrete structures. It will affect wild life.
Secondly I don't think it's profitable, the exchequer will never be gained. The route will be useful only in pilgrim season.
Thirdly

It is gonna badly affect the revenue of KSRTC.

Fifth it will reduce the revenue of KTYM TRVL and CNGR stations considerably.( my personal )

Yes, I agree with the first 3 points. 4th is the subject of religion and one's own personal view point of religion. 5th, all revenue is for TVC.

Politicians want to showcase some development in terms of new line so pushing for this. Also the Nilambur-Mysuru line which again won't happen as it passes through tiger corridor. The realistic new line one can think for the next decade is Mysuru - Kushalanagara/Virajapete - Thalassery.

The Opposition on Wednesday criticised the general budget as one lacking in vision and offering no growth prospects, as it again targeted Prime Minister Narendra Modi saying he “followed” Pakistan in deciding on demonetisation and launching a surgical strike “on our own people.”
Congress leader Veerappa Moily initiated the debate in Lok Sabha on the Union Budget 2017-18 in which he picked holes in the government’s economic policy and targeted Mr. Modi over a host of issues, like in the past few days.
Attacking the government over demonetisation, he said it has offered
...

no gain for the common man on whom “the State was unleashed.” While Mr. Modi and other BJP leaders have already begun toning down on the issue in their election speeches, they have not done so in Parliament due to “false pride.”
Reasons like fighting corruption, black money and fake currency cited by Mr. Modi to justify demonetisation were the same given by Pakistan when it took a similar decision in June 2015 and no other country which has done so ever gave such reasons, the former Union Minister said.
“It dawned on the Prime Minister that Pakistan has taken a right step. Let’s follow it. For the first time, we have followed Pakistan. It is unprecedented... It is not worth following Pakistan,” he said.
Criticising the Budget, he said the time was ripe for a forward-looking Budget but it turned out to be a timid one, without any will power or vision to take the country forward.
Mr. Moily said his party supported merger of plan and non-plan funds and Railway Budget with the Union Budget, saying these were good steps forward but the exercise was “messed up.” “We are not fundamentally against it.”
Praising certain aspects of the Economic Survey prepared by Chief Economic Adviser Arvind Subramanian, he said there was no synchronisation between it and the Budget and while the survey spoke of certain concerns, the Budget did not address them. Subramanian, he said, was the only economist in the government.
Noting that the Survey presented before the first Budget of the Modi government had said that fundamentals were very strong and the legacy was good, he said the attack on the UPA government over its handling of the economy was political or what many people say ‘jumla.’
Demonetisation hit informal sector hard and caused job losses which were not addressed by the Budget, he said.
All critics of the government were painted as criminals, terrorists and black marketeers and those supporting it were portrayed as patriots, Mr. Moily said.
Mr. Moily said, while Indira Gandhi, by nationalising banks, had brought banking to the doorstep of the people, the Prime Minister is taking away banks from the poor.
“This is committing debauchery with the currency... People who oppose your policies are criminals, black marketeers and anti-nationals, while people who support your policies are called patriot,” he said.
At the time of demonetisation, the government had estimated that about Rs. 5 lakh crore will not return to the banking system, but now not even Rs. 1 lakh crore has stayed out, the Congress leader said.
“Money in circulation cannot be called black money. I don’t know who is advising you. Government is deaf regarding the problems caused due to demonetisation,” Mr. Moily said.
Criticising the government’s contention of moving towards a cashless society, he said except Sweden, there is no other country which has a cashless economy.
Quoting data, Mr. Moily said in India, the share of cash in consumer transaction in India is 98%, in U.S., it is 55%, 44% in UK and 90% in China.
“You have shaken the trust of the people and now you are not lifting the withdrawal curbs because you fear there will be a run on the banks. The less cash economy is a disaster... I hope one day there will be an apology in Parliament for the demonetisation move,” he said.
With regard to the Budget proposal of merging oil companies, Mr. Moily said the government wants to destroy all the profit-making oil companies.

Opposing the Budget, TMC MP Saugata Roy said, “Finance Minister Arun Jaitley has not rocked any boat” and has only treaded on a “conservative path” instead of undertaking reforms.

वित्तमंत्री अरुण जेतली ने बजट के दौरान नॉर्दर्न रेलवे के फिरोजपुर डिवीजन के अधीन आते रेलवे ट्रैकों के दोहरीकरण प्रोजेक्ट की घोषणा की है। रेल मंत्रालय ने लुधियाना-किला रायपुर के लिए 19 किलोमीटर तक डबल रेलवे ट्रैक बिछाने,गिल रेलवे स्टेशन पर फ्रेट कॉरिडोर की लाइन के लिए 230 करोड़ 22 लाख रुपए और लुधियाना-मुल्लांपुर रेलवे ट्रैक को डबल करने के लिए 82 करोड़ 99 लाख रुपए जारी किए हैं। इन दोनों प्रोजेक्ट के लिए डिपार्टमेंट ने 313 करोड़ 21 लाख रुपए रखे हैं। अगले महीने इस प्रोजेक्ट पर काम शुरू कर दिया जाएगा।
गौरतलब है कि लुधियाना से दिल्ली वाया किला रायपुर 22 मेल और पैसेंजर और 10 से ज्यादा मालगाड़ियां जाती हैं। दिल्ली से जाखल तक डबल और उसके बाद 212

किलोमीटर सिंगल लाइन है। इस ट्रैक का विकास होने से मेल और एक्सप्रेस ट्रेनों की स्पीड बढ़ेगी। माल गाड़ियों के आने-जाने में भी आसानी होगी। किला रायपुर में बन रहे कंटेनर यार्ड तक जाने वाली मालगाड़ियां भी समय पर पहुंच सकेंगी। साथ ही लुधियाना पहुंचने वाली ट्रेनों को आउटर साइड पर नहीं रोकना पड़ेगा।
इसी तरह मुल्लांपुर तक ट्रैक का विकास होने से भी रेलवे ट्रैफिक को चलाने में काफी आसानी होगी। बद्दोवाल रेलवे स्टेशन पर बन रहे मालगोदाम के लिए भी ट्रेनें आसानी से जा सकेंगी। इन दोनों ट्रैकों के पूरा होने से अप डाउन ट्रैफिक चालू होने से ट्रेनों की स्पीड बढ़ेगी।
सूत्रों की मानें तो पायलट प्रोजेक्ट के तौर पर पहले मुल्लांपुर का प्रोजेक्ट शुरू किया जाएगा। धूरी-जाखल रेलवे सेक्शन पर पहले ही इलेक्ट्रिफिकेशन पूरा हो चुका है।
^डबल ट्रैक होने से लुधियाना प्लेटफॉर्म पर रेलवे ट्रैफिक कम होगा। वहीं मालगाड़ियों के आने जाने की सुविधा भी बढ़ेगी। अप-डाउन ट्रैफिक चालू होने से ट्रेनों की स्पीड बढ़ेगी। मालगाड़ियां समय के अनुसार कंटेनर यार्ड तक पहुंच पाएंगी। इससे कारोबारियों के लिए आसानी होगी,क्योंकि मोगा की साइड से मालगाडिय़ों का काफी ट्रैफिक रहता है। इससे फिरोजपुर मंडल का रेवेन्यू भी बढ़ेगा।-अनुजप्रकाश,डिवीजनल रेलवे मैनेजर फिरोजपुर मंडल
लुधियाना से किला रायपुर और लुधियाना से मुल्लांपुर तक सिंगल ट्रैक के डबल होने से लुधियाना रेलवे स्टेशन पर पहुंचने वाली ट्रेनों को अब आउटर पर रुक कर ट्रैक खाली होने का इंतजार नहीं करना पड़ेगा। सिंगल ट्रैक होने के कारण माल गाड़ियां लाइन क्लियर होने के कारण लुधियाना रेलवे स्टेशन पर रुक जाती थीं,जिस कारण पैसेंजर गाड़ियों को आगे रास्ता क्लियर नहीं मिलने के कारण आउटर पर इंतजार करना पड़ता था। वहीं,ट्रैक के डबल होने से मालगाड़ियां अब सीधे किला रायपुर और मुल्लांपुर रेलवे स्टेशन पर जाकर रुकेंगी। इससे रेलवे के टाइम में होने वाली देरी से निजात मिलेगी।
रेलवे मंत्रालय द्वारा लुधियाना से किला रायपुर और लुधियाना से मुल्लांपुर स्टेशन तक के रेलवे ट्रैक के दोहरीकरण से शहर में ट्रैफिक की होने वाली समस्या से भारी राहत मिलेगी। क्योंकि इन दोनों लाइनों के डबल होने से मालगाड़ियों यहीं से डायवर्ट होंगी और सारे सामान की लोडिंग और अनलोडिंग भी यहीं पर होगी। अब तक शहर के भीतर माल गोदाम होने के कारण भारी वाहनों का आना-जाना रहता है और भारी वाहनों के कारण शहर में ट्रैफिक की समस्या भी रहती है। शहर से बाहर माल की लोडिंग और अनलोडिंग होने से वाहनों की आवाजाही शहर के बाहर से ही हो जाएगी।
स्पीड के साथ बढ़ेगी ट्रेनों की आवाजाही,प्लेटफॉर्म पर रश कम होने से आउटर पर नहीं रुकेंगी ट्रेनें

रेल बजट में एटा-कासगंज रेल लाइन विस्तार को मंजूरी दी गई है। दोनों जिलों के बीच 29 किलोमीटर लंबे ट्रैक निर्माण के लिए 277 करोड़ रुपये के बजट की घोषणा की गई है। इससे यहां के लोगों के लिए बरेली और कानपुर समेत अन्य प्रदेशों में जाने का रास्ता सुगम होगा।
दशकों पुरानी रेल विस्तार की मांग पूरी आखिर पूरी हो गई। केंद्रीय रेल बजट में एटा-कासगंज रेल लाइन विस्तार को मिली स्वीकृति एवं बजट आवंटन होने से जिले के लोग गदगद हैं। इंद्रपुरी निवासी कारोबारी संजय जैन इसे जिले के लिए बड़ी सौगात बताते हैं। कहा कि इससे जहां यातायात सुलभ एवं सस्ता होगा। वहीं विकास के नए द्वार भी खुलेंगे। रेल विस्तार के लिए दो दशक से संघर्ष कर रही

सामाजिक संस्था लक्ष्य के प्रमुख नीरज गुप्ता ने जनता के संघर्ष की जीत बताया। उनके अनुसार रेल लाइन के बाद जिले की तस्वीर बदलेगी। रोजगार बढ़ेगा। बताते चलें कि दिसंबर माह में लक्ष्य डेलीगेशन ने केंद्रीय रेलमंत्री से भेंट कर एटा-कासगंज रेल लाइन विस्तार के लिए किए गए प्रयासों का ब्यौरा सौंपा था। रेल विस्तार के लिए दिल्ली में आंदोलन कर रेलभवन में केंद्रीय रेलमंत्री को ज्ञापन सौंपने वाले पालिकाध्यक्ष राकेश गांधी भी इससे गदगद हैं। दो महीने तक रेल विस्तार आंदेालन चलाने वाले अनुज गुप्ता ने शहरवासियों की जीत बताया। जंतर मंतर पर धरना प्रदर्शन कर रेलवे लाइन विस्तार की मांग उठाने वाले मेधाव्रत शास्त्री ने भी इसे सबसे बड़ी उपलब्धि करार दिया। उन्होंने 26 जनवरी को रेलवे लाइन विस्तार की मांग को लेकर शहर में एक मानव शृंखला भी बनर्वाई थी। बता दें कि रेल बजट में उत्तर प्रदेश को मिलीं 224 किलोमीटर लंबी छह नई रेलवे लाइन में 29 किलोमीटर लंबी एटा-कासगंज रेल लाइन का भी नाम शामिल है। इसके लिए 277 करोड़ रुपए का बजट जारी करने की बात भी कही गई है।

Allocation on rural job scheme questioned by Cong leader
NEW DELHI :
Senior Congress Mallikarjun Kharge on Monday flayed the Modi government for merging the Rail Budget with the Union Budget, adding that in doing so, the Centre was “trying to weaken the autonomy of the Railways.”

President’s speech to the joint sitting of Parliament on January 31, the former Railway Minister in the UPA -II Cabinet, decried the government’s move to “hand over the Railways to the Finance Department.”
“Railways is a public service, it is not a commercial enterprise with the only objective of making profits. By making it go to the Finance Department with a begging bowl, you are trying to weaken its autonomy,” said Kharge in his one-and-a half hour speech.
Admitting that the Railways were running losses, Kharge said: “Do you cut off your nose, when you get a cold?” adding that on the one hand, the Finance Minister had allocated ₹10,000 crore for the bullet train, which was “okay for clapping” , but on the other, he did not mention anything about land acquisition for this project, which was announced two-and-a half years ago.
He said the Finance Minister also failed to mention 62 derailments last year, which is 70 per cent higher than the previous year.
Citing figures, the Congress leader also questioned the government’s claims on “doubling” allocation for the SC/ST sub-plans, as also MGNREGA allocation, farmer suicides and the haste in announcing demonetisation and its shoddy implementation that hit the poor the most.
Kharge said to run the rural job scheme, MGNREGA, the least that was required keeping in mind the population was ₹90,000 crore. “But you have failed MGNREGA by allocating ₹48,000 crore, claiming that it is higher than last year.”
Citing more figures, Kharge said allocation for MGNREGA in 2014-15 was 1.98 per cent of the total Budget, 2.09 per cent of the total Budget in 2015-16, 2.36 per cent of the total Budget in 2016-17, and now this has gone down to 2.24 per cent of the overall Budget.
On demonetisation, he said: “Panic spread after the Prime Minster announced the withdrawal of 86.5 per cent of the currency in circulation, leading to the death of 125 people who were standing in queues to “withdraw their own money”, adding that there was “not even a mention or tribute in this House. The Prime Minister should have at least apologised.”
Prime Minister Narendra Modi sat through Kharge’s entire speech.

Bihar chief minister and former railway minister Nitish Kumar seems unimpressed by the claims of 16.56% higher allocation of funds for Bihar in budget 2017
Patna: Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar on Monday criticised the centre for clubbing the rail budget with the general budget saying “it has killed the autonomy of Railways”, the lifeline of the country.
“Railway ka bantadhar kar diya uski autonomy ko katham kar ke (They have ruined the Railways by killing its autonomy),” Kumar told reporters.

who had served as railway minister, also seemed unimpressed by claims of 16.56% higher allocation of funds for Bihar. “First they should tell how much was spent out of budgetary allocations on rail last year and how much was achieved out of the target set by the railways for Bihar last year.”
ALSO READ: Government employees face strict action for critizing policies: Finance ministry
A day after presentation of the budget on 1 February by Union finance minister Arun Jaitley which included the rail budget, the East Central Railway (ECR) had claimed Bihar received 16.56% more funds for 2017-18 as compared to last year.
“What happened to the announcement about creating a new railway division at Bhagalpur? What is the fate of the new Danapur-Kiul line approved during my tenure as railway minister which had shown a net 14.5% high rate of return to the railways?” he asked.
“What is the level of cleanliness in the trains?... Cleanliness in first class AC coaches is even worse than that in the 3-tier general coaches,” he said. “Instead of concentrating on basic issues like cleanliness and punctuality, it is advertising that milk or some other items are supplied to passengers after they send message on WhatsApp,” he said.
About introduction of bio-toilet, Kumar said this was an old one and during his tenure southern railway had already set up bio-toilet.
