MPs Constant Efforts for Connectivity
Mysuru MP Shri Pratap Simha’s constant follow-up with the Ministry of Railways to restore the lost connectivity to Coastal Karnataka from Mysuru has yielded results.
Earlier, Mysuru had lost daily connectivity to the coastal area due to the diversion of the Bengaluru-Karwar/Kannur route via the new railway line, which is the Hassan-Bengaluru route passing through Kunigal. Since then, the Member of Parliament Mysuru has been regularly following up on the issue with railway authorities and at the ministry level to restore the lost Coastal connectivity services.
