The suburban railway project has got yet another push from the state government, which has published the gazette notification and set a two-year deadline for conversion of 15 diesel trains into electric ones and establishment of a maintenance shed.

"There has been a lot of talk and threats of restricting entry of foreign students. This is unfortunate because foreign students are important for cultural vitality and economic activity," he said. Schoenfeld was in the city to host an event to connect with alumni of Duke University in Durham, North Carolina, new students and their parents. Schoenfeld said that public and private universities throughout the United States, and their associations, are lobbying through members of the Congress, trying to establish that it is in the national interest to "keep doors open.'' Besides an economic impact, travel bans and restrictions will affect the ...
