An open Meet for implementation of ‘Kitturu-Kalyana Karnataka Railway’ project was held at Rajaguru Samsthana – Kalmath, Kittur, Dist: Belagavi on Sunday. It has been a long pending demand of Belagavi-Bailhongal-Kitturu-Dharwad Railway line.
With all the 3 Member of Parliament from BJP, it should be easy for them to stress on this railway line which will help to reduce the travel distance to Bengaluru. The team also discussed Belagavi-Bagalkot- Raichur railway line demand.
With the MOS Railways been Mr. Suresh Angadi the team feels that pressing this point now makes a lot of sense
as he can convince the center for the new line which has pending for decades.
‘Kitturu- Kalyana Karnataka Railway’ project proposal aims to create an efficient railway transit system in North Karnataka connecting the Northwestern & Northeastern districts. The significance of the same for the development of the region was discussed.
With Belagavi MP Shri. Suresh Angadi being the new MoS for Railways in the Union Government, hopes are high for immediate sanction of long pending ‘Belagavi-Kittur-Dharwad’ line. Several surveys for the same route have been conducted in the past, but the project is gathering dust due to the lack of political will of the local leaders.
It was collectively decided in the meeting to work together in the coming days to create awareness among the people of the region and simultaneously pressurize the Elected representatives for the implementation of the project. A memorandum will soon be submitted to Shri. Suresh Angadi in this regard.
A committee by name ‘Kitturu-Kalyana Karnataka Railumarga Horata Samiti’ will be formed and registered to carry forward the campaign. A meeting will be held on 23rd June in Belagavi to discuss the same.
All concerned citizens would be welcome to be part of this organization with a clear motto of implementation of this project.

Only Mudhol will come in Bagalkot Kudachi line Jhamkhandi road station will be far from Jhamkhandi town.. Which is not good positioned station. It should at least pass near by city. Jhamkhandi is major census town which acts like district sub head of Bagalkot district with seperate RTO and Court for near by people.. If it gets direct rail connection then it's growth will be positive..
Regarding Dharwad Lokapur it's fine that Dharwad gets 4 way junction for Londa Kittur Lokapur and Hubli..

Yes for overall rail development of NK, definitely Joshi was better he was instrumental in bringing many trains and change of timings also to suit many people in past. What Angadi can do is interesting now, I think at-least he will try to implement either of these two Bgm-Dwr or Bgm-Bgk line is my guess, because Bgm is lagging faster connectivity to Bengaluru/Chennai and Hyderabad/Eastern side.

May get approval, because of second capital connectivity(NEK-NWK). It can bring additional routes to Klbg and Bidr also.
