Bangalore: Railways Minister D V Sadananda Gowda on Saturday said he would accord top priority for taking up rail underpass projects in Bangalore in the next two to three months to ease traffic congestion in the City.
Replying to felicitations offered by BJP workers of Bangalore North Lok Sabha constituency, Gowda said while he would serve with commitment as Railways minister of the entire country, he had the responsibility to give back to his constituency.
