Nizamabad railway station will become an important junction soon: Madhu Goud Yaskhi
Member of Parliament Madhu Goud Yaskhi, here on Monday, received the newly introduced weekly express train between Mumbai and Nizamabad. The train was formally flagged off by Railway Minister Mallikarjun Kharge at Lok Manya Tilak Terminus in Mumbai yesterday evening.
This weekly train (No: 11205) departs at LTT Kurla on Saturday at 1640 hours, arrives in Nizamabad on Sunday at 0915 hours and leaves for LTT on the same day at 2315 hours and reaches on the following day at 1355 hours, according to railway authorities.
Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Madhu Goud said his two-year effort to get a sanction of an express train between Nizamabad-Mumbai fructified thanks to the cooperation of Railway Minister. Some more express trains would be sanctioned, he said.
Saying that the Nizamabad railway station would become an important junction in the region after the completion of Peddapally line connecting Karimnagar, Jagityal and Armur, he said the line would become operational within a year.
Sufficient funds for this line have been allocated in the railway budget and most of the work was completed, he said adding that the new train would cater to the needs of the people of the district who frequented Mumbai.
Replying a question he said that the Telangana State would be formed within two months and no one could stop it. “Our party will win the elections in two States and it will not have truck with any political party”, he added.
