Although Railway Budget 2016-17 presented by Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu is comprehensive, perspective and prospective with ambitious targets. But has disappointed the Telugu states.
Suresh Prabhu did not mention a word about Visakhapatnam railway zone. There is no extension of MMTS up to Yadadri and no plans to set up Coach factory at Kazipet. There was No announcement of New Trains or Railway Lines in Telugu States and also No mention about funds for pending projects in Telugu States. The proposal of Railway University at Amaravati, is completely neglected and the Railway University was announced for Gujarat.
Andhra Pradesh and Telangana didn’t get anything great in the railway budget, Some minor allotments were made in the budget.
Telangana CM K.Chandrasekhara Rao has expressed unhappiness over the allotments made in the Railway budget for the state While AP CM yet to respond.
