संवाद सहयोगी, खड़गपुर : दक्षिण पूर्व रेलवे महकमे में अप्रैल से पहले नए बदलावों को स्वीकार करने की आपाधापी हर तरफ नजर आने लगी है। महकमे के अधिकारी अप्रैल से होने वाले बदलावों के साथ सामंजस्य स्थापित करने में लगे हैं।
हर साल अप्रैल से रेलवे की समय सारिणी में बदलाव होता है। इसे लेकर यात्रियों में भारी कौतूहल रहती है। क्योंकि नई सूचना से अवगत न होने पर परेशानी की आशंका रहती है। सूत्रों के मुताबिक रेलवे आरक्षण समेत कैटरिंग व्यवस्था में भी रेल महकमे ने कुछ बड़े बदलाव किए हैं। जिस पर जल्द अमल शुरू हो जाने की संभावना है। इसी के साथ खड़गपुर द्वितीय पुल और बालीचक एवं जालेश्वर समेत विभिन्न स्टेशनों पर भी कई परियोजनाओं का क्रियान्वयन नए

DRM HWH Dr. R Badrinarayan promised to strengthen railway connectivity in it's home state of West Bengal. Only Howrah and it's suburban stations are well connected while others have no proper direct connectivity. There is no smooth connectivity between South Bengal stations like Kharagpur, Asansol, Purulia, Adra, Medinipur and Bankura with North Bengal ones like Malda Town, Jalpaiguri, Coach-Behar, Siliguri etc. A proposal has been sent to the board to look into the matter.
Special trains will be plying soon between these stations. Reviewing the demand, further actions will be taken.

విశాఖపట్నం : విశాఖ రైల్వేజోన్‌ కోసం పోరాటం ఉధృతం చేస్తామని వైఎస్సార్‌ కాంగ్రెస్ పార్టీ సీనియర్ నేత బొత్స సత్యనారాయణ ప్రకటించారు. విశాఖలో శనివారం ఆయన మీడియా సమావేశంలో మాట్లాడుతూ బడ్జెట్‌లో రాష్ట్రానికి అన్యాయం జరిగిందన్నారు.
కేంద్ర బడ్జెట్‌లో విశాఖ రైల్వేజోన్‌ ప్రకటన లేకపోవడం నిరాశ కలిగించిందన్నారు. మార్చి 9లోగా విశాఖ రైల్వే జోన్ ప్రకటించాలని కేంద్ర, రాష్ట్ర ప్రభుత్వాలను బొత్స డిమాండ్ చేశారు. కేంద్రం రైల్వేజోన్‌పై ప్రకటన చేయకుంటే పార్టీ జిల్లా అధ్యక్షుడు గుడివాడ అమర్నాథ్ ఆధ్వర్యంలో అనకాపల్లి నుంచి భీమిలీ వరకు 250 కి.మీ. పాదయాత్ర చేపడతామన్నారు. రాష్ట్ర అభివృద్ధిని, ప్రజల మనోభావాలను చంద్రబాబు పరిగణనలోనికి తీసుకోవడం లేదని ఆగ్రహం వ్యక్తం చేశారు.
కేంద్ర బడ్జెట్‌లో రాష్ట్రానికి ఏమీ కేటాయించకున్నా సీఎం చంద్రబాబు స్వీట్లు పంచుకోవడం దారుణమన్నారు. ల్యాండ్‌ పూలింగ్ ద్వారా టీడీపీ నేతలు కమీషన్లు దండుకుంటున్నారని మండిపడ్డారు.

Nothing would happen even if they win. All this hue and cry will only last as long as they are in the opposition. Once they become the ruling party, the situation will be the same as now. The railway authorities are not interested in creating one more zone. They will try to stop it or delay it as much as possible.

NASHIK: The Konkan Railway on Sunday ran two trains - one reserved and the other unreserved - from Madgaon to the eastern and northern parts of the country, while passing through north Maharashtra and the Vidarbha region.
The move has brought much cheer to the residents in Nashik as now there is a likelihood of having direct and improved rail connectivity to the Konkan region and beyond.
As part of studying the operational feasibility, the Konkan Railway ran two single journey trains on a special fair 'to clear the rush' between Madgaon and

Patna and Madgaon and Kharagpur on Sunday. The 00124 Madgaon - Patna unreserved special train left Madgaon station around 12.15pm while the 00126 Madgaon - Kharagpur reserved special left Madgaon at 3.30pm.
The trains travel via Ratnagiri, Panvel, Kalyan, Igatpuri and Manmad before reaching Bhusawal and then part ways to Nagpur and Patna.
While the unreserved train reaches the Nashik Road railway station at 3.40am on Monday after travelling for 15.20 hours, the reserved train does not halt at Nashik Road and instead reaches Manmad at 8.50am after having travelled the same distance in 17.30 hours.
Local railway officials said that generally such test runs are conducted by the railways before starting any periodic train on any route. "This is one such train that is likely to see the light of the day in the forthcoming tourist season. But promising regular service would not be possible as it is the Railway Board in New Delhi that makes decisions in this regard," the official said.
The local residents, meanwhile, are elated about the possible new addition of trains to Konkan from Nashik Road and Manmad railway stations.
"The trains on this route will provide the much needed rail connectivity between the two regions as until now we could travel only by road. After the Mahad incident and the poor condition of roads, the time taken to travel similar distances becomes more than double. Reaching Ratnagiri itself takes more than 12 hours, leave along the fatigue of the journey," said Vivek Kolgaonkar, a resident of Nashik and who has relatives in Fonda in the Konkan region.
Sanjay Karekar, hailing from Ratnagiri district, too pointed out that the current timings of the train were the most convenient. "The only available train is Mangala Express that takes an entire day as you board the train in the early hours of the day and alight in the evening - in any direction. At least this train arrives at a decent time at Nashik Road railway station," Karekar said.
Nitin Dabholkar, another passenger, pointed out that the double decker train would actually serve the purpose of travellers moving between Konkan and north Maharashtra.
"As per the information available on the internet, the Manmad-Patna train marks it as inaugural run. We expect the train to start on a weekly basis," said Ghansyam Desai, a resident of Dapoli who has relatives in Manmad town.

Welcome move, especially the reserved train to KGP. Special fare train on a route which does not have a single regular connectivity is a compulsion for the poor people to compulsorily pay very high fare and acts as a dampener.
It is surprising that even after about 2 decades of operation of Konkan Railway, it is not having a regular & directly connectivity with almost 80% section of Mumbai-NGP-HWH which is one of the premier rail routes of IR. Populace in crores residing in the huge geographical tract in the region comprising from Bhusawal/ Akola/ Badnera(Amravati)/ Wardha/ Nagpur/ Gondia/ Durg/ Raipur/ Bilaspur/ Rourkela/ TataNagar/ KGP to Kolkata & adjoining area still have to change trains to enjoy the beautiful & hitherto

unexplored beaches of Konkan region. There is a huge latent tourism potential for Konkan region including Goa from this vast and heavily populated unconnected region.
Various non daily options are possible with two destinations from the two clusters consisting of (Goa/ Manglore/ Ernakulam/ TVC) at one end and (HWH/ RNC/ Korba(BSP)/ NGP) at the other end. Even a suitably timed daily train from HWH-Panvel-MAO-Ernakulam-Allepy-TVC shall be well patronized on this high demand route.

Trains are not always introduced only to carry end to end traffic.
It has been amply stressed that Konkan Region to Bhusawal/ Akola/ Badnera(Amravati)/ Wardha/ Nagpur/ Gondia/ Durg/ Raipur/ Bilaspur/ Rourkela/ TataNagar/ KGP to Kolkata & adjoining area is main focus.
The HWH-TVC train is not intended for the end to end connection. It is intended as a single train solution to the various non-daily connections possible between the two clusters given with one destination from each cluster. In other words instead of having many non-daily connections between many destinations, it

is better to have a daily connection encompassing all the destination which will serve the purpose of all.
The whole route shall be on HWH-NGP-Mumbai, Mumbai-MAO-TVC routes which are high passenger demand routes. Targetted traffic is mainly intermediate traffic between
(1) konkan region (railway) (Manglore-Goa-Roha i.e. 750 kms) with (BSL-HWH stretch1500 kms)
(2) Direct connectivity of Navi Mumbai with (BSL-HWH 1500 kms stretch) which is very important
(3) Connectivity of densely populated (Manglore – Kozhikode-Shoranur) 300 km stretch to Central & Eastern India is poor as compared to connectivity of Ernakulam-TVC (via kottayam).
This train may not be preferred choice for TVC – HWH/KGP journey and can accordingly can terminated at Ernakulam instead of TVC. But again the connectivity via kottayam is good but via alleppy is not so good, and also TVC shall be getting several new connectivities with important towns like (Nashik/ Bhusawal/ Akola/ Badnera(Amravti), Rourkela/ Tata Nagar etc. Further extension beyond TVC by about 90 kms to Kanyakumari shall make the train more useful.

Dear friend, this train for at least several crores of population residing in the 1500 kms stretch between Bhusawal/ Akola/ Badnera(Amravati)/ Wardha/ Nagpur/ Gondia/ Durg/ Raipur/ Bilaspur/ Rourkela/ TataNagar/ KGP to Kolkata & adjoining area is "Hope of the century" and not "Joke of Century" for connecting to beautiful Western Coast of India including Konkan region/ Goa.

রেললাইন জুড়ে ছড়িয়ে রয়েছে মৃতদেহের অংশ। খণ্ড-বিখণ্ড। ভয়ঙ্কর দৃশ্য। আর সেই ছবিই দেখল বাঁকুড়া। দেখল রাজ্যবাসীও। ট্রেনে কাটা পড়ে মৃত্যু হল তিন-তিনটি হাতির। যার মধ্যে দুটি শাবক। অপরটি মা-হাতি। গতকাল সন্ধ্যা সাড়ে সাতটা নাগাদ মর্মান্তিক এই ঘটনাটি ঘটে বাঁকুড়ার বিষ্ণুপুর ও পশ্চিম মেদিনীপুরের পিয়ারডোবা স্টেশনের মাঝে।
বনকর্মীদের অনুমান, জঙ্গলের মধ্যে দিয়ে লাইন পেরোতে গিয়েই, খড়গপুর-আদ্রা প্যাসেঞ্জারের ধাক্কায় কাটা পড়ে হাতিগুলি। দলে ছিল মোট পাঁচটি হাতি। এর মধ্যে দুটি হাতি বেঁচে গেলেও, মা ও দুই শাবকের মর্মান্তিক মৃত্যু এড়ানো যায়নি।
বাঁকুড়ায় তিনটি হাতির ট্রেনে কাটা পড়ে মৃত্যু, একইসঙ্গে তুলে দিচ্ছে একাধিক প্রশ্ন। তার মধ্যে

সবচেয়ে বড়, এই মৃত্যু কি এড়ানো যেত না? দায় কি একেবারেই নেই বন দফতরের? বিষ্ণুপুর ও পিয়ারডোবার মাঝে যে জায়গায় দুর্ঘটনাটি ঘটে, বছর দুয়েক আগেও সেখানে ট্রেনের ধাক্কায় মৃত্যু হয় একটি হাতির। মূলত দলমা থেকে এরাজ্যে আসা এবং ফিরে যাওয়া, দুক্ষেত্রেই এই পথটিই ব্যবহার করে হাতির দল। জেলায় যে রেসিডেন্সিয়াল হাতিগুলি রয়েছে, অর্থাত্‍ যেগুলি এখানেই থেকে গিয়েছে তারাও বিষ্ণুপুর-পিয়ারডোবার মাঝের এলাকা দিয়ে যাতায়াতে অভ্যস্ত। একদিন নয়, বহুদিন ধরে চলছে এই রুটে হাতিদের আসা-যাওয়া। তবু কেন ঘন জঙ্গলে ঘেরা এই পথটি এলিফ্যান্ট করিডর হিসেবে চিহ্নিত করা হল না? হাতিদের সেফ প্যাসেজের ব্যবস্থা করতে কেন উদ্যোগ নেয়নি বনদফতর? এলিফ্যান্ট করিডর হিসেবে চিহ্নিত করলে স্বাভাবিকভাবেই ট্রেনের স্পিডে লাগাম পড়ত। কমত দুর্ঘটনার আশঙ্কাও। কিন্তু তা করা হয়নি। তবে কি বনদফতরের উদাসীনতারই বলি হতে হত এই তিন-তিনটি হাতিকে? এই অবস্থায় এড়ানো যাচ্ছে না এ প্রশ্নও।
