स्पेशल ट्रेन जगदलपुर से 4 घंटे में पहुंचेगी किरंदुल
जगदलपुर | यहां से विशाखापट्टनम के बीच चलने वाली स्पेशल ट्रेन का विस्तार किरंदुल तक कर दिया गया है। जगदलपुर आने के बाद यह ट्रेन 4 स्टेशनों पर ठहरते हुए 4 घंटे में किरंदुल पहुंचेगी। सांसद दिनेश कश्यप ने बताया कि लंबे समय से ट्रेन को किरंदुल तक बढ़ाने की मांग की जा रही थी। पिछली बार विशाखापट्टनम में हुई बैठक में भी इस मुद्दे को जोर-शोर से उठाया गया था। हाल ही में रेल मंत्री पीयूष गोयल के रायपुर प्रवास पर उन्हें इसकी जानकारी दी गई थी।
गंभीरता से लेते हुए उन्होंने इस स्पेशल ट्रेन के विस्तार के लिए आवश्यक पहल करने का निर्देश दिया। सांसद ने कहा कि 20 नवंबर की सुबह10 बजे इस स्पेशल ट्रेन को हरी झंडी दिखाकर किरंदुल के लिए रवाना किया जाएगा।
इसका स्वागत दंतेवाड़ा और किरंदुल में किया जाएगा। इस ट्रेन का किराया भी स्पेशल के मुताबिक ही लगेगा। उन्होंने कहा कि रायगड़ा के समीप पुलिया खराब होने से दुर्ग एक्सप्रेस भी लंबे समय से बंद है। इसे चलाने के लिए भी रेलवे को पत्र लिखेंगे। अरकू के निकट रेल की पुलिया क्षतिग्रस्त हो जाने से स्पेशल ट्रेन फिलहाल बदले हुए रूट से रायगड़ा-विजयनगरम होकर चल रही है। पुलिया बन जाने के बाद इसे सीधे रूट पर नए टाइमटेबल के अनुसार चलाया जाएगा। जिसमें काफी समय भी बचेगा।

Key Highlights: 
Visakhapatnam-Jagdalpur express soon to travel upto Kirandul in Dantwada district
Visakhapatnam-Jagdalpur express covers 319.47 kilometre at an average speed of 41 kilometre per hour
Goyal also approved several rail projects for the state
Railways Minister Piyush Goyal has approved to extend Visakhapatnam-Jagdalpur express upto Kirandul in Dantwada district, the Naxal-affected region of Chhattisgarh, to boost the transportation facilities.
At present, this express covers a 319.47 kilometre distance between Visakhapatnam, Andhra Pradesh to Jagdalpur of Chhattisgarh. It has an average speed of 41 kilometre per hour and travels every day of the week. 
According to an official in Raipur, the Union Minister also sanctioned a new rail line between Nagpur Road Halt and Manendragadh via Chirmiri. The cost for setting up this rail line will be equally borne by Centre and state governments, reported in PTI. 
Apart from this, Goyal while chairing a high level meeting of officials in the presence of state Chief Minister Raman Singh - has also approved several rail projects for the state.
As per direction of Rail minister, the first phase of East Rail Corridor project between Kharsia and Dharamjaigarh should be completed by September 2018. 
Further, the minister has asked South Eastern Coalfields Limited (SECL) and Central Coalfields Limited (CCL) to jointly draft an integrated project for the proposed 182km-long Ambikapur (Chhattisgarh)-Barwadih (Jharkhand) rail project.
Reportedly, in the meeting, new coaching terminals at Raigarh and Dongargadh were also discussed and approved. 
Meanwhile, Piyush Goyal has defended the Centre's decision to launch bullet train project in India, stating that it was part of the country's developmental plans.
Replying to a query on Quora, a website where users ask questions and invite answers from the online community - "Does India actually need a bullet train?" Goyal on Sunday, also gave a 884-word defence of the Mumbai-Ahmedabad High Speed Rail (MAHSR), popularly known as the 'Bullet Train'.
"India is a rapidly developing economy with numerous developmental needs. A major component of India's developmental plan is the upgradation of current rail networks as well as the development of new high speed rail corridors popularly known as bullet trains.
"The Mumbai-Ahmedabad High Speed Rail project is a visionary project by the NDA government which will herald a new era of safety, speed and service for the people, and help the Indian Railways become an international leader in scale, speed and skill," Goyal said.
He said although introduction of a technology is often met with resistance but it eventually goes on to usher in change.
"New technology has not always been adopted easily, and has at most times seen resistance. However, history shows us that new technology and advancements are highly beneficial for the country," he said.
The railway minister cited the example of the start of the Rajdhani Trains in 1968 which was opposed by many, including the chairman of the railway board.
"Such things keep India backward. But today, they are the trains that everyone wishes to travel in," the minister said.
Goyal also gave a detailed report of how bullet train is a "low-cost project", how it will promote Modi's 'Make in India' doctrine, work with cutting edge Japanese technology and usher in economic growth by creating thousands of jobs
