अंग एक्सप्रेस को संभवतः बांका होकर ही चलाया जाएगा. उसके रेक को मुजफ्फरपुर भेजने का प्लान है रेलवे का. जैसी खबर सुने थे कुछ समय पहले.

Why Indian Railways fully electrifying the bg routes and the fuel efficient locos are in good condition and the for electricity source also comes mostly from which also names for pollution
According to me they are wasting the 121.34 billions and the indians doesn't asked for this project at this rate
It would be used for many people
They were wasting money
of poor people in the name of development
This project is to be taken after 10 -15 years it can acceptable

Sir, the real reason why Indian Railways is electrifying all of it's major trunk routes has nothing to do against the viability or inefficiency of diesel locomotives, rather the availability of diesel is the main issue!
Sir modern EMDs are highly efficient and if you factor in that majority of the electricity in our country, is produced by coal based plants that are highly inefficient in nature, the total net efficiency of electricity production in diesel locomotive is higher.
The issue with diesel is that it has to be imported from the
Gulf countries which are not always friendly and are allegedly involved in activities detrimental to India's interest. Whereas coal is available in abundance, hence there is a spur to electrify Indian tracks.
However Diesel locomotives will always remain on standby duties in case of emergencies like the 2012 grid failures.

It is not about which locomotive is best. IR's 3-phase diesel-electric locos (EMDs and the GE WDG4G/6G) and the 3-phase elocos (WAP5/WAG9) are equally efficient. Neither of them is superior to the other. They are made for different purposes.
Countries like the USA and Australia are almost exclusively diesel hauled. They are very efficient and convey a lot more freight traffic than India.
An electric loco can easily be made more powerful, but is useless without OHE. A diesel-electric loco can go anywhere on the tracks, without requiring additional infrastructure.
reason for going for electrification is the cost and traffic. When a route has very few trains, it doesn't make sense to spend crores of rupees on electrifying the track. But, when a route has a lot of traffic, it is cheaper to electrify it and run elocos on the route.
In recent years, the traffic on IR has increased a lot. So, on most routes, there will be good return on investment for electrification. That's why they are going for electrification of most routes now.
That said, 100% electrification is really stupid. There are still many routes that do not have high enough traffic to justify electrification. Sometimes lobbying and political egos trump common sense. The 100% electrification aim is also on the same line.

Are journalist are expert in civil engineering? This news is planted for creating chaos only nothing else. As far as I know from my sources there is everything alright in tunnels. Even this type of tunnel is unique in indian railways. And if we talk about land slides, this is common in IR and there are some preventive and protective measures too. Along with that, minor land slide which can be cleared within few minutes should not be taken into account. As a member of railfan community I expect we should also understand the challenges faced by engineers in difficult terrain.
