New Delhi, Oct 22 (UNI) Amid uproar by RJD and Left members, the Lok Sabha today passed without discussion the supplementary demands for grants (railways) for 2008-09 to the tune of Rs 526.0170 crore.
The supplementary demand under 'voted' portion is for meeting the additional requirement to progress execution of certain projects identified as national projects and for taking up certain 'out of turn' works during 2008-09, regarded as 'new services/new instruments of services'.
Of the total amount, Rs 526.0030 crore is under capital fund , Rs 85,000 under railway funds and Rs 55,000 under railway safety fund.
While the RJD members were demanding severe action against Maharashtra Navnirman Sena chief Raj Thackeray for instigating his activists to attack 'outsiders'' in Mumbai, the Left members from Kerala wanted restoration of the cut in foodgrains from the Central pool for the State.
