Odisha CM Seeks MoU Signing Soon With Railways For Developing Bhubaneswar Railway Station Into World Class
Writes Letter To Railways Minister Piyush Goyal Urging To Expedite Date For Pact Inking
As Bhubaneswar has already earned the tag of smart city, Hon’ble #Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik has requested Hon’ble #UnionRailwaysMinister #PiyushGoyal to expedite the signing of memorandum of understanding (MoU) between Government of Odisha and the Railways for developing #BhubaneswarRailwayStation into a #WorldClass.
In his letter to the Hon’ble Railways Minister on Monday (May 21, 2018), the Hon’ble Odisha #ChiefMinister has mentiond, “As the project is of immense importance to the citizens of the city for which the State Government is committed to fully bear the expenses for development of a modern and world-class station, I would, therefore, like to propose that the MoU may be signed at #Bhubaneswar on a mutually convenient date.” “The MoU that was to be signed on 20.01.2018 envisaged taking up of the project in two phases. As the same could not be signed and the project has already been delayed considerably, it is proposed by the State Government that whole project may be taken in one phase. Accordingly, State Government has moved for signing of revised #MoU, which may be expeditiously approved by the #Railways,” states the Hon’ble #CM.
The Hon’ble CM’s letter also mentions, “As you are aware, the State Government has already offered to develop a modem #RailwayStation building with international class passenger amenities in the capital city of Bhubaneswar. As already agreed, the modem station facility is planned to be built on land belonging to #StateGovernment and is already designed as a multi modal hub which will be seamlessly integrated with the surrounding #SmartCity development.” #SupportForNaveen #Support4Naveen #SupportNaveen #BJD #BijuJantaDal
