The All India Trinamool Congress (AITMC) will approach the Centre seeking rail links for Haryana towns.
Stating this on Saturday while addressing a public meeting at Majoora village in Assandh Assembly constituency, AITMC Rajya Sabha MP and northern region in charge K.D.Singh said: “It is a misfortune of Haryana’s many towns including Assandh that despite being known worldwide for bumper production of super quality Basmati rice, these places do not have railways links.’’
He said that it was very unfortunate that the political leaders in the State had never paid attention to the fact.
“I will convince Union Railway Minister Mukul Roy to grant rail links for these areas of Haryana,” he asserted.
He further said that even though Assandh was topping in quality production but because of discrimination, it was lacking behind in education and other fields. There was no quality educational institute or any other establishment which could prove that the ruling or previous governments had made efforts to bring development in Assandh.
Mr. Singh reiterated that political leaders at the helm of power, past and present, had “neglected northern Haryana whenever it came to development works.’’
Expressing concern over reports that Haryana was “headed towards economic failure,’’ he said that the Trinamool under the leadership of its national president and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee was known for its people friendly policies and perhaps that was why the people in Haryana were being drawn to the party.
