"We need to expedite them and pursue them," he said.

Shinde also said the feedback received by MPs will be taken into consideration and another round of meetings will be held after two months to take stock of the situation.

Maharashtra sends 48 members to the Lok Sabha.

"The utilisation certificates of allocated money are crucial for releasing the next round of funds. Secretaries of various departments need to focus on their timely submission as well," the CM said.

Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis said the previous dispensation's decision not to give 50 per cent contribution to railway projects in the state is now reversed.

"The state government will bear 50 per cent cost of the railway projects in the state so that they will be completed fast," he added.
