Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on Wednesday urged the Union Railway Minister Piyush Goyal to introduce a Shatabdi Express train between Bhubaneswar & Rourkela via Jharsuguda. He said, the Shatabdi Express would serve the genuine transportation demand of people of these two significantly important cities of the state.

More Information:

  • “I would request that a Shatabdi Express be introduced between Bhubaneswar and Rourkela via Jharsuguda as Jharsuguda is a major industrial hub in western Odisha whereas the Steel city of Rourkela is the 2nd smart city of the state,” Patnaik said in a letter to the Railway Minister.
  • The Chief Minister wrote the letter to Goyal, a day before his visit to Jharsuguda.
  • “Odisha is the biggest contributor of revenues to Indian Railways in the freight sector, the passenger growth too has been much higher than the national average,” he said.
  • Patnaik said,”I would be keenly looking forward to an early favourable response from you on the above proposal.”
  • “As there are no direct express trains to Rourkela-Jharsuguda in the morning hours from Bhubaneswar, the proposed Shatabdi Express will be well patronized, thereby making the service financially viable as well,” he added.
