Madhya Pradesh has been given a gift that Habibganj railway station will soon be developed as a model station. The initiative to make railway stations more beautiful and well equipped in this budget is laudable. Mr. Chouhan said that the Railways Minister has made efforts to modernise rail facilities. Antyodaya train will have many facilities for the poor. Significant measure has been taken by considering measures to ensure zero accident.
