Spiritual and historical tourism can be further developed if people know about Jagannath culture. The Union Railway Minister sought the cooperation of the State Government to provide land for the railway line.

Further it is worth mentioning that, 215 hectares of land is required for this. The design is almost complete. Special tourist hubs will be set up at four to five places within 32 km. That is why we need land from the State Government.

For this, the central government has sanctioned 5600 crore rupees. Fund sanctioned in January 2023 for less than 1 year.

Out of this, 684 towers have been completed. The construction of the tower was completed in a very short time. Work has started for 3112 towers. The sooner the state government cooperates with the site for the tower, the sooner the work will be done.
