सिद्धार्थनगर : डुमरियागंज सांसद जगदम्बिका पाल ने कहा कि आगामी 30 नवंबर से बढ़नी से असमसोल तक के लिए ट्रेन चलायी जायेगी। इसकी स्वीकृति मिल चुकी है। इसके उद्घाटन के लिए रेल राज्यमंत्री मनोज सिंहा विशेष ट्रेन से बढ़नी आयेंगे। उस दिन वहां पूर्वाह्न 11.30 से कार्यक्रम रखा गया है। बढ़नी से चलकर वह नौगढ़ रेलवे स्टेशन पर फ्लैग आफ करेंगे।
.
सांसद पाल शुक्रवार को नौगढ़ रेलवे स्टेशन पर तैयारियों का निरीक्षण करने गए थे। इस अवसर पर कहा कि यह क्षेत्र अपने आप में बेहद समृद्धिशाली है। नई सरकार में तेजी से काम हो रहे हैं। बढ़नी को गोंडा तक ब्राडगेज का काम दिसंबर तक पूरा हो जाना था। यह मार्च तक पूरा हो जायेगा। इसके बाद इस रूट पर ट्रेनों की कोई नहीं रहेगी। प्रयास होगा कि गोरखपुर से

इस रूट से होते हुए एक इंटरसिटी चलायी जाये, ताकि यहां के नागरिक दिनभर में लखनऊ से अपना काम निपटा कर यहां रात को घर आ जायें। इतना ही नहीं यह प्रस्ताव तैयार किया जा रहा है कि गोरखपुर से लखनऊ होकर जाने वाली अधिकांश ट्रेनें संतकबीरनगर-बस्ती के बजाय नौगढ़-बढ़नी की तरफ से होकर जायें। इससे महराजगंज, सिद्धार्थनगर, बलरामपुर के यात्रियों को सुविधा मिलेगी। मार्च के बाद यहां से कई विशेष ट्रेनें चलायी जायेंगी। इससे यहां के नागरिक आसानी से दिल्ली, मुम्बई, कोलकाता, चेन्नई जैसे महानगरों को जा सकेंगे। आवागमन की व्यवस्था बेहतर होगी तो यहां का विकास भी बेहतर होगा। इस दौरान सीनियर डीएन क्वार्डिनेशन जीतेन्द्र सिंह, सिजनल डिवीजनल इंजीनियर इलेक्ट्रिकल लखनऊ ओ.पी.सिंह, डी.एन. ए.के.सिंह, आई.आर.डब्लू आर.डी.पाण्डेय, ए.बी.एम. ए.के.मिश्रा आदि उपस्थित रहे।
------------------
शिकायतों की बाढ़ में नौगढ़ रेलवे स्टेशन
सांसद पाल दोपहर एक बजे की बजाय सायं 4.45 पर नौगढ़ रेलवे स्टेशन पहुंचे। थोड़ी ही देर में स्टेशन पर आम नागरिकों की भीड़ लग गई। हर किसी ने आरोप लगाया कि यहां रेल यात्रियों के लिए कोई व्यवस्था नहीं है। शौचालय, विश्रामालय सदैव बंद रहता है। जनरेटर चलता ही नहीं है। दलालों के आगे नागरिक टिकट ही नहीं पाते। स्टेशन पर मौजूद नागरिकों की पीड़ा को गंभीरता से लेते हुए उन्होंने तत्काल डीआरएम अनूप कुमार को फोन पर इसकी जानकारी दी। सांसद पाल ने इसके लिए एएसएम केशव श्रीवास्तव को इसके लिए जिम्मेदार बताया। डीआरएम ने सीनियर डीएन को शीघ्र समस्याओं के निस्तारण का आदेश दिया। रेल अधिकारियों ने इससे पूर्व शोहरतगढ़ व बढ़नी का निरीक्षण किया।
--------------
अधिकारियों के पहुंचने के बाद केबिन से उठे एएसएम
सांसद पाल व रेल अधिकारियों के स्टेशन पहुंचने के बाद भी एएसएम केशव श्रीवास्तव केबिन से न उठे। थोड़ी देर बाद वह आराम से सामने आये तो सांसद ने उन्हें फटकार लगाई और कहा कि जब वह अपने मंडल स्तर के अधिकारियों की इस प्रकार अवहेलना कर रहे हैं तो आम इंसान के साथ बर्ताव कैसा होगा, सहज अंदाजा लगाया जा सकता है। कहा कि उन्होंने क्षेत्रीय सांसद की भी उपेक्षा की है। उनकी शिकायत पर डीआरएम ने कार्रवाई का आश्वासन दिया है।
-------------
समय से दो घंटा पूर्व चलेगी डेमू
स्टेशन पर मौजूद रेल यात्रियों ने यह भी शिकायत की कि यहां अधिकांश ट्रेनें एक ही समय पर हैं। एक के पीछे दूसरी गाड़ी है। ऐसे में एक गाड़ी सदैव खाली जाती है। इससे यात्रियों का भी भला नहीं होता। सांसद पाल के कहने पर रेल अधिकारियों ने इसे नोट किया और भरोसा दिलाया कि डेमू अपने समय से दो घंटा पूर्व चलेगी।

To escape fines imposed by traffic cops for parking on station road, tourist operators now park inside the hospital premises free of cost, inconveniencing ambulances and patientsThe Railway Protection Force (RPF) has been given the job of protecting railway property and prohibiting any trespassing. However, the Pune RPF seems to have forgotten that bit. Private tourist operators are not only trespassing railway property, but are blatantly using the railway hospital premises to park their tourist vehicles —for free.The railway hospital, falling under Central Railway's Pune division, is situated inside the Pune station premises which is a very busy location. Adding to the chaos is the Pune ST stand, which is located next to the hospital.Due to the constant passenger flow, the area is always crowded. Not to be deterred, private tourist operators add to the confusion with their presence.To ease the congestion leading to the station, traffic cops have started...

taking action against vehicles parked on the approach road for the past six months. Not one to be bogged down, the private tourist operators have picked the inside of the railway hospital premises to escape the cops.
According to the traffic police, there are nearly 70 to 80 private tourists in the area. Senior police inspector V Gangalwad, in charge of the Bund Garden traffic division, told Mirror, "Private tourist operators' menace is reaching new heights outside the station area. Every day, we take action against at least five vehicles. As a result, they must have adopted a strategy of parking their vehicles inside railway premises. We are now going to send a letter to the railway administration, requesting them to discourage private operators from using their premises."
Reeling under a manpower crunch, RPF is currently taking help of a private security agency to look after railway property. Now, a private security guard has been appointed at the railway hospital, but a lone guard does not stand a chance in front of all the private operators. According to the employees of the hospital, the vehicles begin to come in from early morning. The private operators crack their deals outside the station area and as soon as it is finalised, one of them returns to take the vehicle away. As one vehicle goes out, another takes its place. "It has become a daily menace for patients and medical staff. Sometimes, these vehicles end up blocking the movement of ambulances," said a staffer.
Pleading ignorance regarding the issue, assistant security commissioner of RPF's Pune division L B Singh said, "I am not aware of the issue, but if private tourist operators are using the railway premises to park their vehicles, it is illegal. I will immediately ask my staff to verify the situation and take necessary action."
Surprisingly, even the railway administration claims to be unaware of the issue. "I will look into the issue and precautionary action will be taken in this regard," said additional divisional railway manager AB Gangalwad.

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. After spotting a detached iron plate on the railway track near Parsik Tunnel, Constable Sheikh, using a red coloured bag rushed and stopped an upcoming local train in the nick of time.

After presenting a plaque on behalf of commuters of Mumbai, Samir Zaveri, who has made

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.

KOCHI: Kaloor junction may bear witness to a sea of changes within a week’s time as the metro officials have received the green signal to construct a pillar in the middle of the junction. The work of the pier for the pillar will start within a week and officials have already sought the help of the traffic police to regulate the traffic in the area. Barricades will be set up here.According to DMRC officials, the traffic signals along with the CCTV cameras located at the junction will be removed so as to felicitate the changes that is expected to take place here.“For at least four to five days from the day the traffic signals are removed, police will have to manually manoeuvre the traffic.  The police informed us that it will take at least one week to reinstall the existing signals at a different position,” said top DMRC officials.In an...

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.
