AURANGABAD: The extension of the Latur-Mumbai Express train till Bidar in adjoining Karnataka came as a boon for Latur, Osmanabad and Beed, as the railway ministry has sanctioned three new rail services for these districts.
The announcement was made by Union railway minister Suresh Prabhu after Latur district guardian minister Sambhaji Patil Nilangekar met him in Delhi on Monday.
The extension of the Mumbai train had sparked tension in parts of Marathwada with Latur and Osmanabad observing a shut down on May 5.

the residents of Latur and Osmanabad were demanding a rollback of the decision to avoid overcrowding of the popular train, locals from Udgir taluka in Latur district were pressing for continuation of the stretched route having received added rail connectivity.
The three new rail services will now include a service from Bidar to Mumbai via Latur and Osmanabad, which is scheduled to start on July 1, and the Yashwantpur-Bidar Express will be extended up to Latur in the next three weeks. Besides, the work of laying of new railway track from Latur road to Gulbarga will be inaugurated by December.
Nilangekar, who is labour and skill development minister in the state government, said that his party leaders converted the problem into an opportunity while acting on the Latur rail issue.
"Union transport minister Nitin Gadkari and Maharashtra chief minister Devendra Fadnavis spoke with Prabhu to safeguard the interest of Latur residents. After the extension of Latur-Mumbai Express till Bidar, the railway minister has now ensured that the quota of Latur should not be compromised with and hence he has agreed to provide the new railway services," Nilangekar said in a statement.
The minister also said that the survey for the railway line from Latur road to Gulbarga will be completed by September.

The minister also said that the survey for the railway line from Latur road to Gulbarga will be completed by September.
While activists from Latur and Osmanabad had given a call for rail-roko on Tuesday, the railway ministry's stand is to diffuse tension. The railway ministry had recently approved extension to Latur-Mumbai Express train (number 22107/22108) till Bidar in keeping with the demand of passengers.
However, the move sparked unexpected tension in parts of Marathwada with Latur and Osmanabad observing shutdown on May 5. While residents of Latur and Osmanabad were demanding a rollback of the decision to avoid overcrowding of the popular train, locals from Udgir taluka in Latur district were pressing for continuation of the stretched route having received added rail connectivity.
The issue had also given birth to inter-taluka dispute in Latur district over rail issues and also put local political leadership from the ruling BJP in a fix.
Omprakash Varma of Marathwada Railway Vikas Samiti said Latur getting three rail services is a victory for local politicians. "The local leadership in Latur area mobilised things and even met the railway minister. If politicians from Auragabad show similar willpower, the pending projects in Aurangabad could also get a push," he said.

He appeals to the Railway Ministry to speed up works that are under way
M. Mallikarjun Kharge, Leader of the Congress in the Lok Sabha, has expressed discontent over the slow pace of railway works in the Hyderabad-Karnataka region.
Addressing a press conference at Aiwan-E-Shahi guest house in Kalaburagi on Monday, he appealed to the Union Railway Ministry to continue working on the initiatives he had taken during his brief tenure as Union Railway Minister and to speed up the works that are under way.
“In

order to develop railway infrastructure in the Hyderabad-Karnataka region, I, as Union Railway Minister, had taken many initiatives such as opening a railway divisional office in Kalaburagi, laying of tracks between the Bidar and Kalaburagi stretch and the Wadi and Gadag stretch, electrification of railway tracks, and construction of railway over-bridges at several level-crossings at Wadi. While a few of these are yet to take off despite having budgetary allocations, the rest seem to be moving at a snail’s pace,” Mr. Kharge said.
He added that the issue of scarcity of sand that had delayed tunnel work on the Kalaburagi-Bidar railway stretch had been resolved by involving both the Kalaburagi Regional Commissioner and the Raichur Deputy Commissioner who would facilitate quality sand extraction from Raichur district. “I hope the work will be completed by September,” he said.
Highlighting the statutory issues involved in procurement of gravel required for track-doubling works, Mr. Kharge said that he had talked to the others concerned for facilitating hassle-free procurement. “As per the new rules, permission is required for gravel mining. Upon my direction, the Regional Commissioner has asked the contractor to collect gravel from government land and only then approach private ones if a sufficient quantity is not available in the former source,” he said.
