They occupied every inch of space in S6 coach of Konark Express on Sunday, says a passenger
Allowing general passengers into reserved coaches during nights is causing untold hardship to passengers, who are having confirmed journey tickets. This is happening quite often, says Ch. Srinivasa Rao of Madhuranagar, frequent traveller.
“I travelled from Vizag to Secunderabad on Sunday (June 11) in S 6 coach of Konark Express. The TTE allowed ‘unreserved passengers’ into our coach and after 9 p.m., these passengers slept on the floor in between the lower berths causing inconvenience to
those who slept on the berths as they had difficulty in getting down,” he says.
“Those who could not get the space on the floor between the berths squatted near the door way blocking the way to toilets. Many passengers avoided going to toilets. There was no stand or pouch to put the water bottle and there was not even a cell charger provision near berth in our coach,” says Mr. Srinivasa Rao.
He wants the railways to ensure proper maintenance of the coaches and not to allow ‘unauthorised passengers’ into reserved coaches.
Passengers, who travelled by the Nanded Express from Secunderabad to Visakhapatnam last Monday went through a harrowing experience. “The train reached Duvvada at 9.30 a.m. and it was detained there till 10.45 a.m. for unknown reasons,” says Parimala Koviri of Sujathanagar, who was travelling with her husband and two children in S 1 coach in the train.
“We were not given any information about the reason for the delay on the public address systems. The humid weather added to our woes,” she said.

However, "eligibility" does NOT always mean...

Voting multiple times in the same poll using multiple IDs, rating each other IDs' blogs using multiple IDs, etc. are classified as "gross misuse". . This is an advance notice that some of the...
