Again saying, what you are showing is true, nothing to deny the fact. But what I and other bloggers are saying is, to run a correct type of train at correct time. We need to consider which class of people are traveling in a given section. We are talking about people for whom, taking 230Rs GS ticket matters a lot. We are not asking to run Shatabdhi, Garibrath, Duronto, AC SF etc. we are talking about an intercity kind of connectivity for the sake of this section of people.

saying SBC congested MYS congested UBL VSG congested because dumping. but never care for developing alternate terminals in chamraj nagar nanjangud, CMGR TLGP etc. if they develop pit lines and stable lines here they can easily handle coaches without disturbing existing pattern and even if they FEDL they can provide sufficient DEMU MEMU passenger express connectivity. and another thing Bus lobby is main reason for slow trains but they blame SR didnt designed tracks well. what kind of reason is this. y dont SWR modify and improve MPS..

If you think SWR is serving karnataka very well then believe your opinion. But it will not change facts! Even other people agree SWR is not good for karnataka. Why bring in SR anyway then, first sort out your own problems then blame others! I have not painted anyone as villains, I have only given facts,if you yourself feel you are a villain then I cannot help it!
Its better to end this pointless discussion here and do other meaningful work.

If you can't do it blame SR! Look at SBC itself, why only 3 platforms to karnataka from SBC? Facilities in other stations like BAND, KJM, CRLM are nothing. No other terminal like BNC/BYPL/YNK developed. Future stations like LOGH, CSDR, hebbal on ORR could be developed but no work. Negligible suburban trains and endless traffic on roads. Then say other states dumped their trains in SBC. CR increased coaches in udyan, SBC refused saying PF constraints. TEN-DR chalukya halts for 3 hrs in YPR in the morning, nothing done since over 7 years. If I want to go to BGM from SBC, no option except RC which is always full. Finally blame some random zone SR(MAQ) ,SCR( for 12650) and CR( for GR)and sleep like a baby in an airavat club class :P

Sir we can't save Prasanthi express which got extended to Odisha.
Why should another train suffer same thing
Want train ask for new train
Why snatching train from brotherhood
See what we have done
to Ap ac express
Am damm confident if ap ac express started from bza scr gave ap express best priority with well maintained rake and MPS tt
When you can't handle it don't ask for it.

I cannot agree more on what you said. AC AP schedule was ruined by VSKP extension. Not to say anything bad about VSKP, its all on ECoR which doesnt care about VSKP. DMM-BZA is entirely within SCR, So there is a lot more schedule flexibility. There are plans for this train to be extended till HUP - Pending approval from SWR.

I was saying that first vskp should separate from ecor which is creating problems in vskp division
,with vskp trains tt and maintenance etc.
First we should cured this problem
If new trains r extension of train are allocated to vskp r if railways' give finance assistance to vskp how vskp will get justice it comes in ecor judiciary
think first vskp should concentrate on this problem it is root cause.

What is the use of connecting cities when already AP AC connects Vskp BZA sections. Just think who I'll be interested to travel from tirupati NLR via vskp raipur whichbus circuitous route when you they are trains running in lesser routes.

All the characters in this skit are pure fictional.
Any resembelence to living or dead is purely co-incidental.
The human characters are
HIS EXCELLENCY(HE) , The Railway Minister
They both start on a trip to inspect all the important stations in the country.
After completing the SCR, they enter the most highlighted zone. Here, the discussion goes. you have to follow the background score too !!
Scene 1
Trains Halts at a station. HH holds the two handles of the coach and tends to step down on to the PF.
That was a single step for HH but a giant leap for the STATION.
She tumbles down as she takes the 1st step. The PF was so low and almost to the ground level.
HH : Where is the PF, Mr RM?
HE : Err, it should be somewhere (looks here and there) and the construction work is going on here, Your highness. This the development in my rules(smiles proudly)
HH: Alright, but which station are we in ?
HE: Hmm, I dont have the railway map but (wanders here and there to find a station board) looking a station he says, ITS DUVVADA, your excellency.
HH : What is this DVD and where it is? (And walks along... birds chirp .. dust withers away from the ground.. thunders all over)
HE : DVD is the alternative station which is developed( tongue slips) on par with VSKP. Through this station only, all trains pass and by pass.
HH : Oh, that's great my boy. (Still looks here and there for some mankind but couldn't find any )
HE : Are you looking for something Ma'am?
HH : I am looking for my security and FOB to reach the PF1.
HE : Err.. ooon aan(weird noises), the FOB is not yet available maam and let me call the security.
HE : You said it is an alternative station to VSKP and all trains halt here but why there are no humans or FOB. First you should develop the station and then halt the trains. Don't know who gave you the RM post(bits her tongue : P )
HE : (calls up the security of the HH and they reply that they lost their way in reaching DVD. nobody in the vicinity knows where it is)
Finally they both cross the tracks and finds their exit way but couldn't understand which way to go.
HH : Where is the road to the city and why cant I find any public transport to the city? BTW, how much funds you have allocated to DVD development.
HE : (Proudly shruggs his shoulders and takes his new ipad(we paid :P) and starts reading the stats from PINK BOOK.
HE : your excellency, we have allocated Rupees 51 for PF development, Rupess 116 for passenger amenities, rupees 501 for new reservation comples and rupees 1116 for water facilities.
HH : (Makes her eyes wide open. Her face becomes RED but she against LAAL and hence controls her expressions)
HH : Let me see the pink book (and she finds that the all figures were struck off and minute amounts were allocated for DVD).
HH : Why all the figures are struck? Where are the rest of funds diverted?
HE : Err Maam, I have revised al the figures as per DREAM 2020 to develop all stations in West Bengal and we have taken steps to make DVD a world class station in the vision 3030. Hope, you remember the saying that Railways in WB has not progressed at all.
HH : (In utter shock,) If WB is under developed, this looks like AFRICA and I cannot stay here any moment. Catch the next train and lets move to VSKP.
This is the scene one. It's just based on few facts and few sarcasm to make a pleasant reading. The next scenes would continue based on your feed back.
Thanks for reading.
