    People in Nagarkurnool Lok Sabha constituency have been waiting for a railway line for forty years now. This dream has not been fulfilled for decades. In every election, the railway line is a promise, but those who win as MPs from any party forget about paying attention to this matter. It remains an open secret that after winning as MPs, the political leaders do nothing for the people except working for their own self-interests.

    There is a strong opinion that the region has lagged in the absence of a railway line. It is believed that the district was shifted to Palamuru because there was no special train to reach here when Nagarkurnool was a district a hundred years ago.

    Locals opine that in the absence of strong leaders here and lack of coordination between the Central and State governments, the dream of the rail route will remain unfulfilled. They state that if there is a railway line connecting other areas, it would prove useful industrially and transport-wise, especially the famous Kollapur mangoes that can be easily transported to other parts of the country.

    It may be recalled that the Gadwal-Macherla railway line was proposed to pass through various parts of Nagarkurnool Lok Sabha constituency. It has been discussed since 1980. Now, the Dornakal line of Gadwal has come to the fore. It is proposed to travel 290 km to Dornakala via Gadwal, Wanaparthy, Nagarkurnool, Kalwakurthy and Deverakonda.
