Maharashtra BJP on Thursday hailed the Railway Budget saying it focuses on providing amenities to the ordinary commuters and also aims at improving services delivery.
"There is an effort to improve railway services. At the same time, fare hike has been avoided," state BJP president Raosaheb Danve said here.
"The Budget puts the common man on the centre stage and envisages many user firendly measures like fully unreserved trains and mobile charging for all," Danve said.
The proposed Churchgate-Virar and CST-Panvel rail elevated corridor will help improve train travel in Mumbai, the BJP leader said.
"Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu has laid emphasis on improving infrastructure. I welcome the budget on behalf of Maharashtra BJP," Danve said.
