Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav has urged Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu to include certain proposals related to Uttar Pradesh in Rail Budget 2016-17.

The chief minister in his letter to Prabhu has requested completion of broad line between Etawah-Mainpuri in the current fiscal and to make a provision in the forthcoming Railway Budget, an official spokesman said.

He said the railway line between Mandhana-Anrawrganj on Kannauj-Kanpur section should be removed and a bypass track should be developed between Mandhana-Panki.
