    This is because of the neglect of both the Railways and the State Govt. for connecting such an important link. From Balangir to Sonepur, there is no hills and rivers. Till then, no progress of earthen works or construction of bridges etc. Nobody knows whether land acquisition work is complete or not. The citizens of the 5 districts (Balangir, Sonepur, Boudh, Nayagarh and Khurdha)are equally to be blamed alogwith their Representatives at Bidhan Sabha and Lok Sabha for not highlighting such an issue. If railways haveno funds, there may be an agreement between MCL, NALCO, railways and the State Govt. to connect Balangir-Sonepur-Redhakhol for transport of coals from MCL mines to industries in general and prposed power plants in Boudh, Sonepur and Titilagarh in particular, and also liquid alumina from Damanjodi to Angul factory of NALCO in the shortest route. This may make the funding easier. Then, raiways may think for connecting Sonepur to Khurdha oou ofits own funds. Hope the coming days will show us the light by atleast completing a rail link upto Sonepur at the earliest (by 2014 prior to LOKSABHA election) and upto Khurdha by say another decade (by 2020).
