Editorial with Sujit Nair: ₹13,200 Crores For Northern Railway, ₹59 Crores For Southern Railway.

For the fiscal year 2022-23 budget, the central government has allocated ₹13,200 crores for the Northern railways for new lines, bringing better logistics solutions and other maintenance. The budget, however, is far more than what is allocated to the Southern railways. The zone has been allocated a meagre amount of ₹59 crores. The difference in budget allocation was pointed out by the Member of Parliament (MP) from Tamil Nadu, Kanimozhi Karunanidhi, in the session on Wednesday, March 15. She questioned Union railway minister Ashwini Vaishnaw over the massive discrepancy between the north and south in the budget allocations and urged him to look at the disparity. Several parliamentarians called out the Centre and shouted ‘shame, shame’, displaying their criticism. In this episode of the Editorial, our Managing Editor Mr Sujit Nair shares his take on the matter.
