BARGARH: A rail link between Bargarh and Nuapada is all that the people of the region wanted their MP Sanjay Bhoi to push for in the Rail Budget.

It was the dream project of his father and former MP Late Krupasindhu Bhoi.

With the project finding no mention in the Wednesday’s budget, the people are piqued and demanded his resignation from the party post.

The rail line via Padampur, many felt would increase connectivity to far-flung places thus ensuring development in the region. Infamous for distressed migration, Nuapada too was looking for some recourse.

Although the senior Bhoi had facilitated survey of the proposed rail project and the feasibility report submitted, it failed to find a place in the subsequent rail budgets.

With Sanjay Bhoi in the Railway Advisory Committee, the people here had hoped that the project would finally see the light of the day. They are now feeling let down by their MP.
