`Important rail projects ignored'

Our Correspondent

MADURAI: The Tamil Nadu Foodgrains Merchants Association, while welcoming many of the proposals announced in the Railway Budget, has expressed its disappointment on non-inclusion of certain essential projects.

In a release to the press here, the association has pointed out that projects such as Dindigul-Palani- Coimbatore gauge conversion project, Dindigul - Periyakulam-Sabarimala project, Madurai-Chennai parallel tracks plan and Tuticorin-Aruppukottai new line should have been included.

In order to contain the fiscal deficit, the association suggested that administrative reform be introduced.
