RDA is protesting against the railway line bypassing Ratlam station | So Good News
Ratlam (Madhya Pradesh): The Ratlam Development Authority (RDA) has raised objections to the proposed bypass railway line that will pass through Ratlam town without entering Ratlam railway station and connecting to the existing Delhi-Mumbai route.
A meeting with the district administration and railway officials was held on Friday, in which Ratlam city MLA Chetanya Kashyap was also present. At the beginning of the meeting, railway officials gave a presentation of the railway plan for the bypass line which will pass through Ratlam town.
The railway authorities also presented a complete map of the new line in the plan. The RDA raised categorical objection to the plan saying that it now comes in the way of the perspective plan of Ratlam town.
MLA Chetanya Kashyap strongly objected to the plan saying that it has become irrelevant as the plan was prepared long ago and during this period the city has expanded significantly. He also added that since the work on the Indore-Dahod railway line is going on, there is no justification in the plan for the Indore railway line to pass only by touching Ratlam town.
Even if the railway wanted to go ahead with this plan, it has to pass at least 5 km before Ratlam urban area, he said. District Collector Narendra Suryavanshi also agreed with Ratlam town MLA Kashyap’s proposal.
District Collector Narendra Suryavanshi, SDM Sanjeev Prasad Pandey, Deputy CE construction railway Jitendra Yadav, SSE JitendraTripathi, AEN Construction Narendra Kumar Sharma were present in the meeting.
