AGARTALA, Feb 26 - Tripura Transport minister Manik Dey has slammed the rail budget for not launching any new project in the NE states.
�This budget could not fulfill the aspirations of the people of the NE region as well as our state. In fact, it is a direction less and pro-corporate budget,� Dey said, adding, people of the state expected announcement of new trains from Agartala as the city has already come under the BG network.
However, he acknowledged, Rs 800 crore had been earmarked in the budget for laying railway track from Kumarghat in Unakoti district to Sabromm in South Tripura district and Agartala-Akhaura railway project. � PTI
