Kerala demands Thalassery-Mysore rail link

The kerala government would put pressure on the Centre to make provision for a Thalassery-Mysore railway line in next year’s railway budget, state law and parliamentary affairs minister M Vijayakumar said on Wednesday.

He said the railway line would give a tremendous boost to development of Malabar region. Home minister Kodiyeri Balakrishnan had recently met the railway minister Lalu Prasad and submitted a memorandum urging the centre to revive the proposal for the line, mooted first by the British, he said.

A meeting to discuss issues connected with railway development in Kerala would be convened soon.
