The ministry has approved Rs 58.5 lakh as the cost for survey of the 117-km railway Shravanabelagola-Madikeri line
Nearly two decades after a plan to build a railway line to Madikeri was put to rest, the Railway Board has sanctioned a survey for a line from Shravanabelagola to Madikeri, raising concerns over ecological destruction in the fragile Western Ghats district.
A letter from the director of the Board, received by the South Western Railway (SWR) recently, says the railway ministry has approved four lines, including Shravanabelagola-Madikeri and Gangavati-Daroji lines under SWR's jurisdiction.

ministry has approved Rs 58.5 lakh as the cost for survey of the 117-km railway Shravanabelagola-Madikeri line, which will pass through Holenarsipur, Arkalgud, Konanur and Kushalnagar. 
"Considering the vulnerability of the Western Ghats, any railway line is an harbinger of disaster. If the governments have not learnt about the sensitivity of Kodagu district from the landslides witnessed since 2018, we have no hope for the future of biodiversity and water security of the state," a senior forest officer who studied the region told DH. 
Sources in the railways said this was not the first time a railway line to Kodagu was planned.
"In 1997-98, the railways conducted a survey to build a railway line from Channarayapatna to Kushalnagar. However, the project was found to be nonviable," he said.
M U Nachappa of Codava National Council said that instead of addressing the concerns raised by the people of Kodagu, the governments at the state and the Centre were coming up with projects that will serve vested industries.
"This railway line will benefit contractors, quarries and industries. People of Kodagu don't want this. The present highways to Kodagu are providing good connectivity to serve the tourism sector. What we have been asking for years are better roads to connect the rural interiors in the district," he said. 
He said the projects will only hasten the process of "removing Kodavas" from their ancestral land.
"In the last two decades, uber rich people from across the country are acquiring lands here to build resorts. They have essentially driven out the Kodavas who lived on these lands for generations," Nachappa said. 
Previously, opposition by environmentalists had forced the Karnataka government to take a tacit stand against the Nanjangud-Nilambur and Thalassery-Mysuru railway lines, passing through wildlife sanctuaries in Nagarahole and Bandipur.
To a question, sources in the railways said political pressure was mounted on the railways to sanction the line.

The lone woman in the Cabinet, Muzrai, Wakf & Hajj Minister Shashikala Jolle is overseeing projects centred around religious pilgrimages
The lone woman in the Cabinet, Muzrai, Wakf & Hajj Minister Shashikala Jolle is overseeing projects centred around religious pilgrimages. She talks to Bharath Joshi on what’s keeping her busy. Excerpts: 
The government has rolled out an Integrated Temple Management System (ITMS). How will it help?
Many

devotees visiting our temples had nowhere to go for complete information. The ITMS provides information about a temple in any district - historical and mythological information about the temple, its deity, the temple assets and details of various sevas. Now, sevas can be booked online. We’re adopting e-hundi in 15-20 temples by tying up with SBI. We also believe that ITMS will help temples earn more revenue as donations won’t be misused. Revenue of the Kukke Subramanya and Nanjangud temples have risen already. 
Under the ‘Daiva Sankalpa’ project, the government will develop 25 temples at a cost of Rs 1,140 crore. Is there money for this? 
The required money is already with the temples. For example, the Kukke Subramanya temple has Rs 300 crore in a fixed deposit. The project involves comprehensive development of 25 temples for which masterplans will be prepared. The Kukke temple masterplan is ready. Likewise, the masterplan for the Male Mahadeshwara temple is in the final stage and works have started. For the remaining temples, we’re discussing the way forward. 
Why are you looking for CSR funds to maintain temples? 
We have over 35,000 temples. If you leave out the ‘A’ and ‘B’ category temples, there are 34,000 temples under the ‘C’ category that have been neglected. Last year, the outlay for ‘C’ category temples was Rs 10 crore and it is Rs 25 crore this time. It isn’t enough. So, we’ve planned the Kaya Kalpa scheme to get CSR funds. We’re preparing a list of CSR opportunities and we will approach companies. 
What’s the update on developing the Anjanadri temple in Koppal? 
It’s our luck that Lord Rama’s disciple Hanuman was born in Karnataka, at the Anjanadri hills. We have a big vision to develop this place. But, everything can’t be done atop the hill. There are 13 acres of land below the hill that the government will acquire for development works. We’ve approved Rs 5.5 crore for the acquisition. We want this temple to have the same grandeur as the Ram temple coming up in Ayodhya. We want the two temples to be connected.  
How will the two temples be connected? 
We are planning a special train to Varanasi (Kashi). Our government has already decided to provide Rs 5,000 each to 30,000 Kashi pilgrims every year. I spoke to the railway minister and he gave me an idea. There’s a Bharat Gaurav tourism scheme. Old trains that have served for 15 years will be given on lease for tourism. We’ve paid Rs 1 lakh for registration with the railways. The train will have 12 AC and two non-AC coaches. We’ve planned a 7-day tour that will include Kashi, Srisaila and Anjanadri. We hope to have this train running soon.
Recently, the government took shelter under the 2002 Muzrai rules to say that nothing can be done to prevent the ban on Muslim traders near Hindu shrines. Why? 
In 2002, there was a certain government in place. Why weren’t the rules enforced? Why the rules are being cited now? Why didn’t the government interfere? The rules say that certain activities cannot be allowed near Hindu temples. Yes, it’s true that there were calls for status quo in view of religious harmony. Also, there were groups that petitioned the government to enforce the rules. Given the sensitivity on both sides, I’ll discuss with the CM to ensure that no one gets troubled, while also keeping the rules in mind.  
What is the state’s outlook for the Hajj pilgrimage this time? 
India’s Hajj quota this time is 56,601. Karnataka’s quota is 2,660. There were 4,500 applications from the state before the 65-year age limit was fixed. The number of applications now is 4,231. Pilgrims will be selected via khurra (lottery). The Hajj day (Arafat) is July 9. Hajj flights will start on May 31. Perhaps, pilgrims in Karnataka will get their chance June 10 onwards. A training programme will be conducted and our officers are there to help them when they land in Saudi.

An amount of Rs 100 crore was earmarked in the recent Budget to develop Anjanadri hill as a tourist destination
Footfalls at the Anjanadri hill in Gangavati taluk of Koppal district, popular as the birthplace of Lord Hanuman, seem to have increased ever since construction began for the Ram temple in Ayodhya.
The number of visitors has increased in the last two years. Nearly 10,000 people visit the place daily during holidays now.

hills in-charge administrator Aravind Suttagundi says devotees from Uttar Pradesh, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh and other states are visiting the hilltop temple in large numbers. 
The state government is also pushing for the development of Anjanadri.
An amount of Rs 100 crore was earmarked in the recent Budget to develop Anjanadri hill as a tourism destination. 
According to sources, land has been identified by the district administration for acquisition to create amenities around the temple.
Five acres of land have already been acquired and there is a proposal to acquire another 14 acres, he said. 
Koppal district tourism department assistant director N Hemanth told DH that the department will appoint a consultancy to prepare a detailed project report for the overall development of Anjanadri hill.
Once the consultancy submits its report, the department will invite tenders for the works to be taken up around the hill, he explained. 
Hampi World Heritage Area Management Authority commissioner Siddarameshwara Swami said Anjanadri hill comes under the purview of the Authority.
The authority has its own master plan and there are regulations and guidelines for taking up developmental works at the world heritage sites.
Permission will be accorded to construct buildings or for other works without harming the monuments, Swami said. 
Regulations in the master plan will be followed strictly while giving permission, he said.
While experts say these developments will boost the economy and tourism in the area, they caution that any activity here should complement the ecosystem.  
Direct train demand 
Keeping in mind the mythological connection, Koppal MP Sanganna Karadi had written a letter to the South Western Railway general manager, requesting a direct special train between Anjanadri and Ayodhya as these two holy places need to be developed simultaneously for the convenience of devotees and tourists.  
However, in a written reply to a starred question in Parliament on Wednesday, Railway Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw said the introduction of a train between Gangavati and Ayodhya is operationally not feasible due to the non-availability of terminal facilities at Gangavati, terminal constraints in Ayodhya and pathway constraints en route.

Train to Ayodhya is possible via Gangavathi, only once remaining portion of Karatagi - Raichur new line completes. As Hubballi has terminal facilities, this train can start as Hubballi - Ayodhya Exp via Raichur, Nagpur.
