World class satellite railway station at a cost of Rs 600 crore: PM Modi

Mysuru, February 20:- Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday announced that a world-class satellite railway station will be constructed at Nidaghatta. He was addressing the BJP convention held at Maharaja grounds on Monday evening.

He started his speech in Kannada, paying tributes to Goddess Chamundeshwari and he remembered the Wadiyars of Mysuru, Sir M Visvesvaraya, and seer Balagangadhara Natha of Adichunchanagiri. He remembered Mysuru peta, Mysuru pak and Jasmine on the occasion.

“Around 15,000 trains have been sanctioned in the railway budget but none of them has come on tracks. Mysuru is a paradise of tourism. With the new railway connection between Mysuru and Udaipur, the tourism of both the states will develop. With the tourism development, taxi and auto drivers will get better business. Roadside vendors will also be benefited. Six-lane road between Bengaluru and Mysuru will also be constructed,” he said.

“The state will not develop as long as the Congress is in power. They ruled the state for 50 years. They couldn’t develop the state and have started talking about development now. I told in Bengaluru that the Karnataka government is a 10% commission government. Many have messaged and called me to inform that it is more. You have to decide which government you want, whether the commission government or a mission government. Mysuru has to stand up once again. Our dream is to make youths self-reliant and not to go in search of jobs. The central government provides funds for the poor, but the state government isn’t making use of it. We aim at providing a house to every citizen of Karnataka. Is there any necessity to have the Congress as a barrier?” he questioned.

PM was honoured with Mysuru peta and a memento. State BJP  president B S Yeddyurappa, union ministers Ananth Kumar, Sadananda Gowda, Prakash Javdekar, Ravi Kumar, Ashok, Shobha Karandlaje, Srinivas Prasad, Sriramulu and others were present. (MR/KS).
