PM Modi lays foundation for coaching terminal in Mysuru
Prime Minister Narendra Modi laid the foundation of the coaching terminal for suburban traffic to be developed at a cost of Rs 480 crore at Naganahalli Railway Station, at a public event in Mysuru Monday.
The coaching terminal will also have a MEMU shed in order to decongest the existing Mysuru Yard, facilitating the running of more MEMU train services and long-distance trains from Mysuru, improving both connectivity and tourism potential of the region, said officials. They added that this will benefit both daily commuters as well as those travelling on long-distance routes.
During the programme, the prime minister also dedicated to the nation the ‘Centre of Excellence for Persons with Communication Disorders’ set up at the All India Institute of Speech and Hearing (AIISH). The centre is equipped with state-of-the-art laboratories and facilities for the diagnosis, assessment and rehabilitation of persons with communication disorders.
Modi took a dig at previous governments and said the benefits of welfare schemes reached a limited section of the population during earlier regimes.
He said, “We have given incentives to the youth under the start-up policy. On the other hand, we are also giving money to the farmers from PM Kisan Samman Nidhi (56 lakh small farmers in Karnataka got more than Rs 10,000 crore in their accounts)… More than 4.25 crore poor people of Karnataka have been getting free rations for the last more than two years. Under Ayushman, more than 29 lakh poor patients received free treatment from the state.”
