It is decades of neglect for Railways in Karnataka. Even till yesterday they didn't have a single train from coastal Karnataka to Interior KA. That train too runs only to MAJN and not to MAQ.

Are bhai. wo to aisa chalta rahega. When Suresh Prabhu came, he concentrated more on always neglected Konkan Railways because of his nearness to Konkan area. Nothing wrong on doing few corrections in Neglected areas, that had to be done long back.

According to railway authorities, a special team comprising expert workers carrying the required equipment, including food, tent and torches, rushed to the spot to repair the track.

Passengers of this train had a lucky escape as the landslide occurred  only at 11 am,” said a railway official.
