Dr Vijay Darda’s efforts bear fruits

The chairman of editorial board of Lokmat Media Group and former member of Rajya Sabha Dr Vijay Darda left no stone unturned to ensure speedy completion of Wardha-Yavatmal-Nanded rail project, which is critical for opening the door to development in backward areas of Vidarbha and Marathwada. Dr Vijay Darda pursued the matter consistently. His efforts were rewarded when the Central government approved the project in 2008. In 2009, the construction work of this project was inaugurated in Yavatmal by the then railways minister Lalu Prasad Yadav. Dr Vijay Darda is still making efforts to expedite the project. He maintained regular correspondence with the railway authorities.
