Doubling work will be completed without damaging Tipu's armoury: Sadananda Gowda

MYSORE: Union railway minister Sadananda Gowda on Sunday claimed that they have worked out plan to complete the double line work between Mysore and Bangalore at Srirangapattana without altering or changing the place of Tipu's armory.

Though the minister refused to disclose the details of the plan on Tipu's armory, he said Railway engineers have worked out a plan and the doubling work on this stretch will be completed by March next year . " If I disclose the plan now with the issue being a sensitive one there will be unnecessary hurdles and in this country there is no dearth of people to deliberate on unwarranted and trivial issues" he disclosed , adding that without affecting its heritage and monumental value the doubling work will be completed.

He said he has allocated total funds needed for the track work between Mysore and Bangalore and " without any delay the track will be operational by March 2015.

It may be recalled here that the doubling work on this small stretch of land where Tipu's armoury near Srirangapattana railway station has been delayed following opposition to its shifting . Later the officials planned to relocate it to a nearby spot and this non-decisiveness on the part of the railway authorities.

He said he has also allotted funds for the survey work of Kushalnagar-Mysore new line and survey work between Kushalnagar and Madkeri will be taken up soon and the project may get delayed in this route because of the forest land and other environmental issues.

Referring to other works, Sadananda Gowda said he has allotted Rs 1543 crore for the ongoing works in Karnataka and there is no question of shelving the projects initiated by his predecessor Mallikarjun Kharge . "Rs 4,99,99,000 of the Rs 5 crore earmarked for Gulbarga division creation by Kharge has been released and only Rs 1000 has been held back to indicate the livingness of the project," he replied and said more funds will be released in the coming days. "Even I have allotted funds for the Kolar and and Yadagir rail coach factories and there is no question of shelving these projects," he clarified adding that all on going projects are not mentioned in the budget.

Allocations for the projects will exist in the pink book and people will not know how much money has been allotted to a particular on going project.
