Rajya Sabha member AU Singh Deo on Tuesday wrote a letter to Commerce and Transport Minister Ramesh Majhi requesting him to provide sufficient funds for construction of the proposed bus terminal at Balangir.
He reminded the Minister that the Odisha State Road Transport Corporation (OSRTC) has planned to set up bus terminals in different districts, and Rs20 crore has been earmarked for the purpose. Five places, including Balangir, have been shortlisted.
The MP said Balangir is desperately in need of a new bus terminal. The Collector has identified suitable land for the same. Like airports, the bus stand should have a food plaza, good rest rooms, medicine shops and shopping arcade to provide adequate facilities for travelers.
Singh Deo said, “I am willing to earmark Rs20 lakh straight from the Rajya Sabha funds for the terminal”. He also requested the Minster to arrange lying of foundation stone for the bus terminal in July first week.
