He further added, “We achieved a huge milestone on Monday in addressing the urban mobility crisis of Bengaluru. Our city is the only metro which does not have a suburban railway network. The suburban railway, something that Bengalureans have been asking for the last 33 years, finally gained the clearance of the Extended Railway Board.”

“I met with the Railway Minister last week. As a citizen aggrieved with the traffic of Bengaluru, I brought to his notice the importance of the suburban railway and requested for his early clearance. The efforts of the Railway Minister Piyush Goyal; and Minister of State for Railway Suresh Angadi; and all Members of Parliament from Bengaluru, PC Mohan and Union Minister DV Sadananda Gowda, have borne fruit of Monday,” said Surya.

It maybe recalled recently Tejasvi Surya, had requeted the NITI Aayog, Railway Minister and top bureaucratic circles to grant permission for this project.
