TRICHY: A charter of demands including the establishment of a coach maintenance facility either at Kumbakonam or Mayiladuthurai was submitted by parliamentarians from Trichy and Madurai at the annual railway consultative meeting held at Madurai. The memorandum also included a demand for operating the Chennai-Trichy Cholan Express fully with chair car coaches as it was a day train.
The general manager of Southern Railway, R K Kulshrestha, chaired the meeting with members of parliament belonging to both houses in Madurai and Trichy divisions. A total of 12 MPs including seven from Madurai, four from Trichy and one from Kerala took part in the meeting. Principal heads of departments and divisional railway managers (DRMs) of Madurai and Trichy divisions also attended.
According

to railway officials, MPs K Parasuraman from Thanjavur, R K Bharathimohan from Mayiladuthurai, M Chandrakasi from Chidambaram and N Gokulakrishnan from Puducherry alone represented Trichy division though there were 14 Lok Sabha and six Rajya Sabha MPs. During the course of the meeting, MPs put forth their requirements both in terms of additional train services as well as additional stoppages.
Among his 20-point charter of demands, Mayiladuthurai MP R K Bharathimohan highlighted various issues such as restoration of Mayiladuthurai - Trichy express, increasing the frequency of Rameswaram-Tirupathi express to daily and introduction of a new daily express between Mangalore junction and Mayiladuthurai via Shoranur, Palakkad, Palani, Dindigul and Trichy.
Thanjavur MP K Parasuraman demanded stoppage for all express trains at Boodhalur railway station in Thanjavur district. According to sources, his request was being considered. Perambalur MP RP Marutharajaa in his representation to the railway GM requested the railway board to lay a new line from Ariyalur to Namakkal via Perambalur.

Three AIADMK MPs have demanded a new railway line from Kumbakonam to Vriddhachalam via Jayamkondam.
The MPs - R.K. Bharathimohan (Mayiladuthurai), M. Chandrakasi (Chidambaram) and A. Arunmozhithevan (Cuddalore) - met Railway Minister Piyush Goyal in New Delhi recently and handed over a memorandum.
They said a survey for laying a railway line from Kumbakonam to Vriddhachalam (74.31 km) was conducted and a report sent to the Railway Ministry in 2016.
The

project should be considered on socio-economic grounds since it would meet a long-pending demand of the public besides improving the backward region.
The new line would provide shorter rail connectivity between Kumbakonam and Vriddhachalam instead of the circuitous route via Tiruchi and Thanjavur. It would provide a rail link to Jayamkondam and Andimadam in Ariyalur district and Srimushnam in Cuddalore district.
The new line would help in freight movement and give a tremendous boost to the overall development of the region by attracting industrial investments, the memorandum said.
Earlier visit
A delegation of trade association representatives and rail users of Kumbakonam met Mr. Goyal last month and urged him to accord sanction for the Kumbakonam - Vriddhachalam line as it would pass through lignite-rich Jayamkondam and would be commercially viable once lignite extraction began.

Traders and rail users of Kumbakonam have urged the Ministry of Railways to consider revival of a proposal for laying a new railway line from Kumbakonam to Vriddhachalam via Jayamkondam.
A delegation consisting of representatives from various organisations led by C. Mahendran, president, Federation of Kumbakonam All Traders and Industrial Associations, met Railway Minister Piyush Goyal in New Delhi recently and submitted a memorandum.
The new line would run through lignite-rich Jayamkondam and it would be commercially viable for the railways once extraction of lignite started, the delegation told the Railway Minister.
The
...

memorandum said although the new line project was accepted in principle and announced in Parliament in 2014 by the then Railway Minister, it was kept in abeyance. The preliminary survey for the project was done and the new line would cut short the distance and journey time from Kumbakonam to Vriddhachalam and beyond and prove a good revenue earner to the railways. Further, the project would elevate the status of Kumbakonam, a temple town, as a railway junction.
Hence, the Railway Minister must use his good offices to reconsider and revive the new line project and ensure its early implementation.
Those among the delegation included V. Sathiyanarayanan, general secretary, Federation of Kumbakonam All Traders and Industrial Associations.

Yeah, what to do ? we simply see them and forget after some days.

these vendors are not feeling guilty and shame.
whenever we buy some tea/coffee/snacks we are believing more hope/honest/truthiness from vendor for quality but we have been cheated.
from birth they should have some common sense. they are playing with others life. idiot guys.
