Residual Andhra demands new Railway Zone

Visakhapatnam (VSKP): A new railway zone for Seemandhra was announced when the Andhra Pradesh Reorganisation Bill was presented in the Rajya Sabha. It’s high time that the peoples’ representatives of the region took up the cause of achieving the long-pending demand for making Visakhapatnam headquarters of the proposed new railway zone.  A separate railway zone with headquarters in Visakhapatnam, and the addition of Vijayawada and Guntur Divisions, was needed to undo the injustice done to Visakhapatnam region by the ECoR headquarters during the last 10 years, said Uttarandhra Rakshana Vedika (URV) president S.S. Shiva Shankar and KNR Foundation president K. Narasinga Rao.
