"Ami je Kaj Korte Parbo, sei kajer protishruti debo.

Janotar hat tali pabar jonyo protishruti debo na, (I will announce only those railway projects which can be ful filled, but I shall not assure more of that just to get clap)," the Minister said.

He desired to get the co-operation from the state government in acquisition of land for the development of railway project.

Mr Chowdhury said he had no 'Aladin' lamp in his hand that he can ful fill all the announced projects of Railways.
