Lucknow, Feb 23: Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav has urged Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu to include certain proposals related to Uttar Pradesh in Rail Budget 2016-17.

The chief minister in his letter to Prabhu has requested completion of broad line between Etawah-Mainpuri in the current fiscal and to make a provision in the forthcoming Railway Budget, an official spokesman said.


He said the railway line between Mandhana-Anrawrganj on Kannauj-Kanpur section should be removed and a bypass track should be developed between Mandhana-Panki.

The CM also said the state government was constructing a greenfield expressway between Lucknow and Agra from its own resources. He said if the Centre was to bring a parallel bullet train or rail line project, then the state was ready to provide land free of cost.
