Karandlaje meets Goyal in Delhi

Shobha Karandlaje, Udupi-Chikkamagaluru MP, submitting a memorandum to the Union Minister for Railways Piyush Goyal, in New Delhi.  

Shobha Karandlaje, Udupi-Chikkamgaluru MP, met Union Railways Minister Piyush Goyal in New Delhi and sought a survey for the Nandikur-Karkala-Moodbidri-Ujire-Dharmasthala railway line.

In a press release issued here on Friday, Ms. Karandlaje said that she had met and submitted a memorandum to Mr. Goyal. She had informed him that Dharmasthala was a major pilgrim centre. Karkala and Moodabidri were known for cashew industries.

The Nandikur-Dharmasthala railway line, with a link to Mudigere, would connect the coastal districts with Bengaluru through the shortest and fastest route. The present Mangaluru-Bengaluru line passed through the Ghats route, which restricted train movement in terms of speed and service, she said.

She also sought a new railway line from Chikkamagaluru to Hassan. The Indian Railways should provide a stoppage for Janshatabdi Express at Tarikere railway station. She also sought stoppage for Mysuru-Talaguppa Intercity Express (Train no: 16205/16206) and for Shivamogga-Bengaluru Intercity Express (Train no: 20651/20652) at Devanuru railway station.

Ms. Karandlaje sought stoppage for passenger trains at Belenahalli railway station. She demanded speeding up of the Chikkamagaluru-Yeshwantpur Express and upgrading Tarikere railway station to a hi-tech station.
