SER had sent a proposal to SR to restore Haldia-Chennai Exp. But SR have denied to restore Haldia-Chennai exp .
This is a bad news for people of WB and specially Purba Midnapur and pashchim midnapore districts of WB.
For people of purba midnapur it was the only dedicated train for chennai and south india which was mainly used by patients and poor labours to travel directly from Haldia, Tamluk, Panskura and whole purba midnapore district.

I am from Haldia and cancelling this train permanently after lockdown has caused significant problems to the people. Patients, labourers, etc. used this train to commute to south India.. Many protests and demands were upheld but none paid attention to it.. This train had a good occupancy and used to run almost full. Imo, ER should take control of this region for public good

Yes many protest done by local people , local TMC leaders demanded, passenger associations demanded restoration of this train. After that SER had sent proposal to SR to restore this train as this train belongs to SR. But SR has denied to restore this train.
The only hope is if BJP MPs from purba midnapore district of WB and BJP leader Suvendu Adhikari takes some initiative and talk to RM. But BJP leaders and BJP MPs from Purba and Pashchim Midnapore do not any initiative in developing railway infrastructure in these neglected areas of WB.

To be honest, Haldia has enough resources to make the city a bustling hub for work. Improving railway network is one of them. But in-charge SER does nothing to improve passenger revenue from Haldia.. This zone is only interested in Haldia's freight section due to huge profits. At present Haldia has 3 local trains to Kolkata, 1 intercity to Asansol and a weekly Express train to Delhi's Anand Vihar.
Haldia deserves more trains.
