BHUBANESWAR -- Union Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu will launch the free Wi-Fi service at Bhubaneswar railway station today.

The Railway Minister, who is on a two-day visit to the State, told media persons that Odisha will figure as one of the most developed state in the country in next 3-4 years and Railways will contribute a lot towards this.

He said that there are plans to set up two rail projects in Odisha one of which is at Narla in Kalahandi district.

Prabhu also said that a joint venture company would be formed to maintain coordination between the Centre and the State for speeding up various ongoing railway projects in Odisha.
