Union Railway Minister M Mallikarjun Kharge was optimistic about bridging the gap of the fall in the revenue mobilisation in the Railways and achieve the plan targets for the year 2013-14.

Talking to “The Hindu” in Gulbarga city on Tuesday, Mr. Kharge said that there has been buoyancy in the revenue generation through freights in the last couple of months and if the same trend continued the plan targets would be achieved as planned earlier.

Mr. Kharge said that the planning commission had imposed a cut of Rs 5000 Crore in the plan size of the Railways this year and he would be meeting the planning commission shortly to plead for sanction of funds for the national projects and would make all out effort to bring down the plan size cut from Rs 5000 crore to Rs 2000 crore.
