Chandigarh, Feb 24 (UNI) Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda has welcomed the Railway Budget as it has listed four major projects for the state including construction of Rewari-Jhajjar-Rohtak railway line.

Reacting to the Budget, Mr Hooda said the state government has already given its consent to bear 50 per cent of the expenditure of the new railway line. The Railway Minister has also agreed to start survey to construct Loharu-Bhiwani railway line, he pointed out.

These two new railway lines to be constructed in the state would meet long standing demands of the people and these would open new avenues and facilitate passengers as well as traders, he said.

Mr Hooda said it was also heartening that a dedicated multi model high axle load freight corridor with computerised control on western and eastern routes, which was announced by the Prime Minister, would be constructed at a cost of Rs 22,000 crore.

This ambitious project would also benefit Haryana in a big way as in the first phase of eastern corridor project, Ambala would be covered and in the western corridor project, Rewari would be covered, he said.

He thanked Railway Minister Lalu Prasad Yadav as the state would benefit from these projects.
