An all-encompassing development will provide a pro- people approach that equally values and incorporates the aspirations and contributions of the citizens of Gwalior. The developments are expected to promote transparency and accountability.
These were some of the views expressed by Union Civil Aviation Minister, Jyodiraditya Scindia during his visit to the Gwalior Railway station to launch the stoppage of the Tirupati- Nizamuddin Express train.
According to sources in the BJP, the stoppage of the train will not only enable the common man to reach Tirupati easily but also travel to other stations falling on that route. As part of the information received, Union Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia had earlier met Railway Minister Ashwini Vaishnav requesting him to stop the train at Gwalior.
Speaking on the occasion, Scindia said that a proposal for the development and expansion of Gwalior railway station has been submitted by the Indian Railway Station Development Corporation at a cost of 250 crores. The minister added that the Gwalior Railway Station is all set for a revamp by the Railway Authority in line with international standards.
Earlier Scindia chaired a meeting of the officials of the District Administration and the Municipal Corporation to review the various development works in the Gwalior-Chambal area. Speaking to reporters Scindia said that the expansion and reconstruction of the Gwalior airport is in progress and is expected to be completed very soon.
He added that the direct connectivity of Gwalior to other major cities in the country will give impetus to the industry and trade in the Gwalior-Chambal area.
