Moneylife Foundation's Samir Zaveri Railway Helpline, on behalf of thousands of local train commuters, felicitated Constable Azim K Shaikh from Thane Police, for preventing a catastrophic accident and disruption of railway service on 7th November

Moneylife Foundation's Samir Zaveri Railway Helpline on Saturday felicitated Constable Azim K Shaikh from Thane Police for preventing a catastrophic accident and disruption of railway service on 7 November 2014.

it his mission to ensure that railway accident victims get swift attention, so that many lives are saved during the first ‘golden hour’, said, "We salute Constable Azim K Shaikh for displaying rare courage and spontaneously responding to the dire situation, going beyond the call of duty, thereby averting a major disaster that has probably saved hundreds of lives and a massive disruption of the railways services."

Several prominent citizens and activists were present during the felicitation and lauded the bravery shown by Constable Shaikh. Some NGOs like Commonwealth Human Rights Initiative (CHRI) and Police Reforms Watch also sent an appreciation letter for Constable Shaikh. The appreciation letter sent by Maja Daruwala, Director of CHRI and Dolphy D’souza, Convenor for PRW was read out by Mr D’souza.

Indian Railways, especially the Mumbai suburban railway network does a phenomenal job in transporting over 75 lakh people back and forth every day in an extremely timely manner. However, everyday 25-30 rail commuters meet with an accident and 10-12 of them lose their lives. This highlights why a large organisation like Indian Railways, with enormous pressure to maintain timing and schedules needs strong additional support from citizens and brave hearts like Samir Zaveri and Constable Shaikh.

Keeping this in mind, Moneylife Foundation set up the Samir Zaveri Railway Helpline to help railway commuters in distress.

Earlier this year, the Samir Zaveri Railway Helpline sought urgent intervention from Mallikarjun Kharge, the then Railway Minister through former MP Milind Deora for reducing the gap between platforms and trains and for making available ambulances at all suburban railway stations.

Moneylife Foundation and Samir Zaveri Railway Helpline have formed a group in Facebook, Coalition for Safe Rail Travel-CSRT to help like-minded citizens and activists connect with each other.

K.S. Eshwarappa, Leader of the Opposition in the Legislative Council, has asserted that despite D V Sadananda Gowda being removed from position of Union Railway Minister, the BJP would ensure the implementation of all railway projects in the State.Addressing presspersons here on Saturday, he however rebutted the speculations that Mr. Gowda was removed from the important portfolio since he was found inefficient to handle it.“It is the prerogative of the Prime Minister to give which ministry to which person, but it certainly does not mean that Mr. Gowda was inefficient, however the reason for his removal is best known to the Prime Minister himself,” Mr. Eshwarappa said.He reiterated that projects for the State would not be compromised, irrespective of who is the Railway Minister.

seers for enacting the anti-superstition law in the State, the Former Minister said religious beliefs are a personal matter and the government should not interfere. Though he did not directly reveal whether he favours or opposes such an Act, he said that the party would see what kind of law the government will bring if it has any such intentions.
“All I can say that the government must take people into confidence before bringing any such law that has the potential for serious ramifications since it is sensitive issue,” Mr. Eshwarappa said.
Tainted ministers
Mr. Eshwarappa also said that the BJP would continue its agitation against the inclusion of ‘tainted’ Ministers in the Congress government until they are dropped, including K.J. George, Dinesh Gundurao, Mahadev Prasad and Qamar­ul­Islam. He gave the example of Santosh Lad being dropped from the ministry.
SEPARATE STORY
BJP seeks to know what “legal and illegal kiss” is
K.S. Eshwarappa, Leader of the Opposition in the Legislative Council, sought a clarification from Home Minister K.J. George on what in his view is “legalised kiss” and “illegal kiss.”
Mr. Eshwarappa was referring to Mr. George’s statement about allowing the ‘kiss of love’ campaign if it is done in a “legal manner”, failing which the police would be given a free hand to take necessary action.
“I want to know from the Minister what is a legalised kiss and what is illegal kiss, if he gives some clarity, then people of the State could follow it without any fear,” he said.

effort to reduce the heavy traffic congestion that may grip the route once the junction is barricaded, the traffic police has decided to ban the entry of private buses to the municipal bus stand from the junction. Instead, they will be asked to enter the stand through the current ‘exit’ area at the Kaloor-Kathrikadavu road, which is being used by buses that head to Vyttila, Kumbalam, Aroor etc.
Meanwhile, all the private buses that enter the bus stand will have to leave the stand through the exit near the Regional Cancer Centre. Those buses that conduct services towards Aroor, Kumbalam and Cherthala will have to take a U-turn at Gokulam Park Convention Centre to reach Kaloor-Kathrikadavu road.
Speaking on this, Traffic Police Assistant Commissioner (East) Sajan Koikkalath told ‘City Express’ that they have asked the metro rail contractor Soma Constructions, which has been entrusted with the work on this stretch, to barricade the junction in such a way that minimum hindrance is caused to the traffic.
“Also, barricading work at the other side of the North Overbridge near the Town Hall is also expected to take place in the coming days. We will be sketching out plans to minimise traffic congestion that is expected to take place there too,” he added.
