Behera said while Odisha gives Rs 15,000 crore annually to the Indian Railways, the budgetary provision for 2018-19 by the Railway Ministry is quite negligible for Odisha.

The state government had appreciated the budget allocation past year.

With regard to Telangana this year, the budget allocation was Rs 1813 crores, 5 per cent more than theallocation of Rs 1729 crore in previous year while Rs 3670 crore was allocated in the budget to Andhra Pradesh, 8 per cent more than the allocationn of Rs 3406 crore during the previous year 2017-18, he informed. "After all, Indian Railways earns about Rs 15,000 crore from Odisha every year", BJD spokesman P K Deb told reporters.

The tracks between Penukonda in Andhra Pradesh, about 140 km north of Bengaluru, and Dharmavaram in Andhra Pradesh, about 185 km north of Bengaluru, would also be doubled at a budget of Rs 294 crore. By sanctioning funds for the key project of doubling Baiyappanahalli-Hosur and Yeshwantpur-Channasandra lines, the railways has finally recognised the importance of a long pending demand. Barbil-Banspani, Barsuan-Banspani-Badampahad railway line projects, not a single project has been announced.
