“There is an urgent need of providing metro services to the cities of Jammu and Srinagar which have witnessed large scale urbanization besides the population of these two cities has also increased geometrically leading to increase in traffic related problems. The metro service could provide much needed remedy to solve the traffic woes,” he added.

While discussing the railway sector in the State, Dr. Singh said that in order to give boost to the tourism industry, which is the main stay of the economy of the State, the railways should also connect the rail link between Kathua-Basholi-Bhaderwah and Jammu-Rajouri-Poonch.
