Why Indian Railways fully electrifying the bg routes and the fuel efficient locos are in good condition and the for electricity source also comes mostly from which also names for pollution
According to me they are wasting the 121.34 billions and the indians doesn't asked for this project at this rate
It would be used for many people
They were wasting money
of poor people in the name of development
This project is to be taken after 10 -15 years it can acceptable

It is not about which locomotive is best. IR's 3-phase diesel-electric locos (EMDs and the GE WDG4G/6G) and the 3-phase elocos (WAP5/WAG9) are equally efficient. Neither of them is superior to the other. They are made for different purposes.
Countries like the USA and Australia are almost exclusively diesel hauled. They are very efficient and convey a lot more freight traffic than India.
An electric loco can easily be made more powerful, but is useless without OHE. A diesel-electric loco can go anywhere on the tracks, without requiring additional infrastructure.
reason for going for electrification is the cost and traffic. When a route has very few trains, it doesn't make sense to spend crores of rupees on electrifying the track. But, when a route has a lot of traffic, it is cheaper to electrify it and run elocos on the route.
In recent years, the traffic on IR has increased a lot. So, on most routes, there will be good return on investment for electrification. That's why they are going for electrification of most routes now.
That said, 100% electrification is really stupid. There are still many routes that do not have high enough traffic to justify electrification. Sometimes lobbying and political egos trump common sense. The 100% electrification aim is also on the same line.

arey auntiji illogical baat kar raho kyuki maine already clarify kar diya hai kyu extention possible nahi hai.

KOAA-JSME ki time table change karke Use BGP hote hua SHC tak extend kiya ja sakta hai. Yeh train agar chalti hai SuperHit rahegi.
Kolkata se MDP,JSME ke liye morning mein ek bhi Intercity type train nahi hai. Poorva hai par usme GN coaches bahut kam hai aur GN coach mein 480KM distance tak ka ticket katna parta hai. Ek train hai par wo bahut jyada irregular hai, Toofan Exp. Agar Toofan Exp ke dep se thora sa pehle (around 9AM) agar KOAA-JSME (BGP-SHC) ko extend karke chaliyi jai to aapko andaaz lag raha hoga ki yeh train kitna overload chalegi.
