rail connectivity in the Northeast to promote tourism and other sectors that have great potential in the region.
He said all the processes have been completed for electric train traffic in Assam, and Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu has endorsed the projects to connect all the NE state capitals.
The rail connectivity between Silghat and Tezpur through the Kalia Bhumura Bridge on the Brahmaputra is also proposed by the Ministry, he said.
Gohain said 29 new trains have already been introduced for the region and connectivity between the Brahmaputra and Barak valleys is now better. The Ministry has also proposed to declare the old Haflong station as a heritage station. Some tourist trains will also be introduced shortly in the NE states to give the tourism sector in the region a fillip, he mentioned.
Regarding the recruitment policy of the NF Railway, he said the Ministry has chalked out a policy to recruit local youths in the grade III and IV posts through NE-based examination. As regards a separate 24-hour Doordarshan channel for Assam, Gohain said he would request the Information and Broadcasting Ministry to open such a channel for Assam, in the lines of the Arunprabha channel opened for Arunachal Pradesh.

BY OUR STAFF REPORTER
GUWAHATI, Nov 10: Announcing a slew of steps for rapid and large scale development of rail connectivity in the Northeastern region, Minister of Railways Suresh Prabhakar Prabhu on Thursday announced a Rs 5,000 crore joint venture with Assam government to construct four elevated railway tracks between Kamakhya and New Guwahati to eliminate 12 level crossing gates in Guwahati city.

made the announcement while laying the foundation stone for the project of doubling of railway line from New Bongaigaon to Kamakhya via Goalpara town and the doubling of railway line from Digaru to Hojai at a glittering function held at the RPF Parade Ground at Maligaon. He also laid the foundation stone for the much-awaited railway electrification project for Raninagar Jalpaiguri – Guwahati via Rangiya railway line and flagged off the first passenger train services on the 10 kilometre Karimganj – Maishashan newly converted broad gauge section in Barak Valley.
Prabhu said construction of the elevated tracks connecting Kamakhya and New Guwahati would decongest city roads, free up railway land and enable railways to develop Guwahati station as a commercial hub. He also said the new projects would keep provisions for connectivity with the proposed metro rail system.
Speaking at the function, Assam Governor Banwarilala Purohit congratulated NF Railway team and the Railway Minister for their success in starting many projects in the Northeast on time.
While thanking the Railway Minister for his initiatives in development of rail network in the Northeast, Chief Minister Sarbanada Sonowal emphasized on speedy completion of all railway projects in the State. He also requested the Railway Minister to take up construction of railway lines so that every district headquarters of the State is connected by rail. The Chief Minister also requested Prabhu to initiate steps involving the Railways for skill development of the youth of the region.
The 10-km track between Karimganj and Maishashan was converted into broad gauge as part of the Lumding–Badarpur–Silchar gauge conversion project. Only a 30 km stretch between Baraigram and Durlavchera still remains to be converted into broad gauge, but the Railway Minister said this portion would also be converted into broad gauge by May 2017. Two pair of new trains – 55686/55685 Silchar–Maishashan Passenger & 55662/55661 Karimganj–Maishashan Passenger will start operating from tomorrow, he announced.
The doubling of 176-km long New Bongaigaon–Kamakhya railway line was sanctioned in 2015-16 Railway budget at an approximate cost of Rs 2,232 crore. The section will have 18 stations where construction of new station building and yard remodeling would be taken up.
The doubling of 102-km long Digaru–Hojai railway line was also sanctioned in 2015-16 Railway budget at an approximate cost of Rs 871 crore. The section has 15 stations. The doubling of Hojai to Lumding section had already been sanctioned for which the Railway Minister of State Rajen Gohain and Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal had laid foundation stone on September 12 this year.
The project for electrification from Raninagar Jalpaiguri to New Bongaigaon and then from New Bongaigaon to Guwahati was entrusted with Rail Vikash Nigam Limited (RVNL) in 2014 and 2015 respectively. The RVNL will execute the project on turnkey basis at a total cost of Rs 655.55 crore.
The function was also attended by Minister of State for Railways Rajen Gohain, General Manager of NF Railway Chahatey Ram, General Manager of NF Railway (Construction) HK Jaggi, Chief Managing Director of Rail Vikash Nigam Limited (RVNL) SC Agnihotri, other senior railway and RVNL officials and a host of invited guests.

JONAI, May 27 - Several hundred youths, including members of Asom Jatiyatabadi Yuva Parishad of Jonai and school -going students staged dharna at Murkongselek (Jonai) Railway Station on Friday.
Though the protesters had plans to detain the Murkongselek-Guwahati Intercity Express at the station, it was not attempted after the Area Manager of NF Railway assured to pursue their demands. The collective protest was against the railway authority’s alleged negligence towards the long-standing demand of placing an additional train on the Rangiya-Murkongselek route.
The protesters subsequently submitted a memorandum to the General Manager of

NF Railway through the Area Manager, who was camping at Murkongselek Railway Station (Jonai) for today.
The protesters’ demands include operation of an additional passenger train from Murkongselek Railway Station in the morning for the convenience of officer-goers in North Assam region, introduction of a speedy train between Murkongselek Railway Station and New Delhi and enhancement of reservation seat capacity in the existing Murkongselek-Guwahati Intercity Express with 50 percent seat reservation for Murkongselek Railway Station near Ruksin.
It may be mentioned that the Murkongselek Railway Station Development Committee and other local organisations have since long been demanding an additional train on this route.
Presently, two trains, namely Murkongselek-Guwahati Express and Murkongselek-Dekargaon Passenger, besides a few goods trains run on this route.
The BG rail route links the Siang belt of Arunachal Pradesh with other parts of the country and the people of North Assam. Four districts of Siang in Arunachal Pradesh have also benefited.

BISWANATH CHARIALI, May 10 - The people of the north bank of Assam have demanded more trains along the Morkongselek-Rangiya railway line, especially during the day time.
At present, only three trains are run by the NF Railway along the said line. It may be mentioned here that the NF Railway had stopped plying of trains along this track in the name of gauge conversion around five years back, which threw the people of this economically backward area into much trouble. On the other hand, the neighbouring State Arunachal is very vulnerable from the defence point view, too, and communication to the State by road is not satisfactory yet. Frequent road blocks due to flood and some other reasons cause much inconvenience

to the people of the State. Therefore, introduction of more trains to distant places like Guwahati, upper Assam, New Delhi, South India etc., has been sought along this track by the people of this economically-backward region as soon as possible.
Significantly, the north bank is represented by three BJP Lok Sabha MPs namely Sarbananda Sonowal, Ram Prasad Sharma and Ramen Deka and two newly-elected Rajya Sabha MPs from Congress namely Ripun Borah and Rani Narah, but people allege that they have failed to persuade the ruling BJP Government at the Centre in this regard.

“In these mock drills, a coach is derailed and kept tilted with the help of a 140-tonne breakdown crane to simulate an accident. Volunteers posting as injured passengers trapped inside the coach are rescued by cutting open the widow bars and the coach body panel with the help of hydraulic rescue devices and disc-saws and taken to the temporary medical relief camp on stretchers.
