Slack is provided to many trains between Kuchman and Pt. Deen dayal Upadhyaya Jn.
Many trains including patna rajdhani, sampoorna kranti, magadh exp, etc reach DDU some 10-15 min early than their scheduled arrival due to slack provided.
Slack, as you may know is the specific time provided to trains so that they can cover up the delay.
So no need of any
speedup here.
TTs are well set and no need of any change.

Yes but this is effective at the end of the journey. If the train gets delayed in between, then there should be scope for recovery. Some slack is ok but too much slack is not. This is a regular scenario for this train to reach DDU early. So to ask for speed up or transfer of slack is normal

You are completely wrong in case of Sampoorna Kranti. Slack is not useful for this train at all between PNBE-DDU. It arrives before everytime at DDU.

If sampoorna kranti is speeded up then it will effect the traffic of prayagraj humsafar, prayagraj exp, purushottom exp, mahabodhi exp (as these two trains runs late by 1-1.5 hrs). So present TT of sampoorna kranti is perfect.

Sampoorna Kranti's slot is perfect.
It chases Magadh till Jeonathpur as mostly Magadh is overtaken just after DDU.
Secondly, Sampoorna Kranti runs after Patna Rajdhani and before rest Rajdhani gang, making it a High Priority train and it doesn't distrub prayagraj exp and humsafar.
Thirdly, Patna Rajdhani overtakes SK at DDU itself.
Superfast Trains including Rajdhani, Garib rath are running in this slot only.
Like first Patna Rajdhani departs DDU and followed by Sampoorna Kranti, Dibrugarh Raj, Howrah raj, Sealdah Raj, Bhubaneswar Raj, Ranchi Raj and atlast BGP,JYG Garibrath, etc.
If sampoorna kranti is made to depart DDU first then it will surely be overtaken by Patna Rajdhani between DDU-PRYJ which will result in delay.
That's why Sampoorna Kranti arrives 30 - 35 min advance at DDU making a clear way for Patna Raj to Overtake it.
Moreover, sometimes Patna Rajdhani overtakes Sampoorna Kranti before DDU. That's why slack is provided to it.
And not even DDU, many trains have been providee with a slack at many big stations.

11 kms of GC work left between LTA & SMC. Interesting thing that DB mentioned is that RB has ordered not to begin operation before electrification. Dense forest have made it tough to carry out electrification work.
