Nation First News: Veteran Socialist Leader and former Sambalpur MP Bhabani Shankar Hota has urged the Odisha Government to consider a proposal for an elevated Railway Corridor from Bargarh to Jharsuguda via Burla.
His Facebook Post:
“The State Government of Odisha should think and plan for elevated Railway corridor from Bargarh to Jharsuguda via Burla, Sambalpur so that it would not only be convenient for travelling public but air, noise pollution would be drastically reduced.”
“Over dependence on road transport would also be reduced. Number of accidents would also be reduced.”
“Large number of students and patients would be benefitted to attend Sambalpur University, VSSIMSAR College and Hospital, VSSUT, Navodaya Vidyalaya, Chiplima Agriculture College, other reputed School and Colleges.”
“I can assure the State Government and also the Union Government that the cost of construction can be recovered within seven years when it is operationalised.”
