New Delhi: Chief minister Dharam Singh on Monday strongly advocated the need for liberal central aid for improving the infrastructure in Bangalore and other prominent cities of the state.

In his 11-page address at the mid-term appraisal meeting of the National Development Council he said Karnataka had seen high economic growth with Bangalore emerging as one of the country's main information technology growth centres. However, the city had been facing major infrastructure challenges and it needed huge investments to meet it.

"Mysore, Hubli, Dharwad, Mangalore and Gulbarga too are growing fast and needed special attention. We request assistance for infrastructure development to these cities out of the funds earmarked for national urban renewal mission," he said.
He also requested the Railways to speed up railway projects in Karnataka by providing additional resources. He made special mention of track doubling work between Bangalore and Mysore and wanted the Centre to take up work from Ramanagaram to Mysore immediately.
