Very short post this one. ToI (Saturday, Aug 4) had carried an interview of the CM-in-waiting Mr Yediyurappa, and I found this answer very interesting:

Bangalore-Mysore rail track doubling

Would anyone know of the status of this long pending project ? It's re-revised date for completion ? The hassles ? And the way out, if any ?

A new sub-site will be available at If you are interested in joining Praja-Mysore content team, please register with Mysore as your primary city and let us know via the contact form.

Hey, how about us?

I just couldn't find a right tag for this post and even thought about whether this fits at Praja. Its about an ongoing strike impacting all of us at Bangalore. Agricultural produce traders are on a strike because they are not happy with government's recent move to allow private parties to buy produce directly from farmers. Wait, don't run away, I am not going to talk about geeky stuff like APMC act, organized retail, their impacts and such. comment guidelines
