Railways Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw said world-class stations will be set up in Rajasthan which has seen a multifold increase in grants for the rail sector.
Addressing a ‘Brahmin Mahapanchayat’ called by Vipra Sena, the minister said, “The grant given to Rajasthan 10 years ago was Rs 600 crore, but this time the state has got a grant of Rs 9,532 crore.”
Vaishnaw said world-class railway stations will be built in Abu Road, Ajmer, Alwar, Asalpur, Jobner, Balotra, Bandikui, Chittorgarh and Dausa, among other places.
“We have to give a new future to Rajasthan,” he said.
In the programme, the Vipra Sena raised several demands such as increasing the 10 per cent reservation for the Economically Weaker Sections (EWS) to 14 per cent, making misbehaviour and assault on priests a non-bailable offence and removing encroachments from temple lands.
