‘Doubling work will be completed without damaging Tipu’s armoury’

Union railway minister Sadananda Gowda on Sunday claimed that they have worked out plan to complete the double line work between Mysore and Bangalore at Srirangapattana without altering or changing the place of Tipu’s armory.
Though the minister refused to disclose the details of the plan on Tipu’s armory, he said Railway engineers have worked out a plan and the doubling work on this stretch will be completed by March next year.
‘If I disclose the plan now with the issue being a sensitive one there will be unnecessary hurdles and in this country there is no dearth of people to deliberate on unwarranted and trivial issues’, he disclosed , adding that without affecting its heritage and monumental value the doubling work will be completed.
He said he has allocated total funds needed for the track work between Mysore and Bangalore and without any delay the track will be operational by March 2015.
It may be recalled here that the doubling work on this small stretch of land where Tipu’s armoury near Srirangapattana railway station has been delayed following opposition to its shifting.
