आंध्र प्रदेश में हुए बड़े ट्रेन हादसे में 41 लोगों की मौत हो गई है. लगातार हो रहे ट्रेन हादसों ये सवाल खड़े हो गए हैं कि आखिर बार-बार ट्रेन पटरी से क्यों उतर जाती हैं.
ट्रेन की सुरक्षा के लिए आधुनिक तकनीक अपनाने की बात हर बजट में की जाती है और साल दर साल नई ट्रेनों की घोषणा भी की जाती है. फिर भी रेल की बुनियादी हालत में और सुधार की जरुरत है. हादसे लगातार हो रहे हैं लोग अपनी जान गंवा रहे हैं.

हादसे की वजह अभी साफ नहीं है. माओवाद प्रभावित इस इलाके में हादसे के पीछे नक्सली हाथ होने की आशंका भी जताई जा रही है. जिस तरह पिछले दिनों कानपुर रेल हादसे के पीछे आईएसआई कनेक्शन की आशंका सामने आई है.

‘Lucky enough to be alive’: Train survivors recall brush with death
Survivors of the Hirakhand Express mishap on Sunday recounted their horrific experience when the trains nine bogies and the engine jumped off the track near Kuneru in Andhra Pradesh.
“It was horrific and frightening. I was among the lucky ones to have escaped narrowly after the mishap that struck late last night,” said Ranjan Mohanty, a Baripada college
principal.
Mohanty, who was returning in the Jagdalpur-Bhubaneswar Hirakhand Express train after attending the wedding ceremony of a relative, said he was sleeping and woke up with a sudden jerk and deafening sound to find himself on the floor.
While the derailment claimed at least 39 lives, the passengers, Mohanty said, travelling in his coach escaped with minor injuries and fractures.
However, the adjacent S-9 coach was perhaps one of the worst affected, Mohanty said, adding he was among the survivors who were sent by a special train to Bhubaneswar via Sambalpur from where he would proceed to Baripada.
Similar was the experience of Prakash Sahu, a youth who failed to figure out as to what exactly had happened when a loud bang woke him up from deep sleep and he was flung from the berth.
Sahu said he along with some fellow passengers managed to move out of the coach with much difficulty and to comprehend what had happened.
“We are lucky enough to be alive though our belongings, mobile phones and other articles were lost,” he said.
For little girl Sai Suchitra, who suffered injuries and was taken to Rayagada hospital, it was a nightmare.
Suchitra said she was travelling with her mother and other family members when the train derailed. She was extremely worried about her mother and others as there was no information available about them immediately.
Bhagban Majhi, a youth who left with a fractured limb after the mishap, said it was pitch dark and he could only hear screams of injured passengers and wailing relatives who lost their dear ones.
It took some time for the rescue teams to reach the mishap site.
Another youth who travelled by the special train to Bhubaneswar via Sambalpur after the derailment said there was panic among the passengers and the whole area was filled with cries of accident victims.
“After we moved out of our coach, we could see the devastating effect of the derailment. Bodies could be seen in the severely mangled coaches,” he said, adding that passengers of unaffected bogies also tried to help those trapped in derailed coaches but darkness was a major hurdle before rescue teams arrived at the scene.
Among the survivors was a couple travelling to Bhubaneswar from Bhawanipatna to attend a marriage function.
Sanjay and his wife Jhili were about to sleep after dinner when there was loud sound and the bogie jolted violently and luggage of passengers fell scattered all around.
Those unhurt in the mishap made efforts to pull out the children and women, said Sanjay.

I had travelled by the 22847 LTT Express from Visakhapatnam to Mumbai. The train was filled to capacity and wait listed passengers had also boarded this train in the down stations at Bobbili, Rayagada, Titlagarh, Kantabanji… as this is the only train to India's commercial capital from this region, says Karunakar, who travelled by this train recently.
Many people with general tickets boarded the train till Raipur and Durg as it is serving as a daytime Intercity Express. Many pilgrims from Vizianagaram, Rayagada and other places, find this train convenient to visit Sri Shirdi Sai Baba temple. They alight at Manmad and go by road.

this train has such high patronage, we request the East Coast Railway to initiate the following: Increase the number of coaches from the present 19 to 24 by adding a few AC coaches as there is huge demand, convert the train into a daily (as it caters to the needs of people going to both Mumbai and Shirdi) by slightly changing its timings as this slot is filled and run as a daily two-pair Inter-city (like 12805/6 Janmabhoomi Express) from Visakhapatnam to Raipur/Bilaspur/Korba and vice-versa as it reduces the load on this train.

Stating that a large part of Odisha still remained untouched by the Railways, Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on Thursday demanded that these backward regions should be connected with the national network by sanctioning projects proposed by the State Government.
In a letter to Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu, the Chief Minister said two most important lines to connect the backward regions of Odisha are Jeypore-Malkangiri (going up to Bhadrachalam in Andhra Pradesh) and Jeypore-Nabarangpur.
The preliminary survey for these two lines had been done by the Railways and as these fall in Left Wing

Extremist-affected backward and tribal areas, the rate of return was low. The State Government has given consent to bear 25 per cent of construction cost for Jeypore-Malkangiri line and 50 per cent construction cost along with free land for Jeypore-Nabarangpur line.
This contribution bridges the viability gap of both the projects as the revised RoR has increased to 17 per cent and 19 per cent respectively, which are higher than 14 per cent cut off fixed by the Railway Ministry, he said and requested Prabhu to sanction the projects.
The Chief Minister demanded that the Sambalpur-Berhampur new line via Phulbani and Rayagada-Gopalpur rail link for which survey has been sanctioned should be declared as national projects. He requested the Railway Minister to extend the eastern dedicated freight corridor from Dankuni to Berhampur to ensure seamless movement of freight between the upcoming ports on Odisha coast including the Paradip Port and the vast northern and central hinterlands of the country.
Naveen also requested that Rail Vikash Nigam Limited (RVNL) should be asked to complete the Angul-Dubri-Sukinda and Haridaspur-Paradip rail links within the targeted timelines. Though SPVs have been formed for the two projects, the performance of RVNL is far from satisfactory, he said.
The Chief Minister said Mass Rapid Transit System (MRTS) should be introduced in Cuttack and Bhubaneswar, which are being developed as a Twin City and as per the comprehensive development plan (CDP) prepared by IIT, Kharagpur, the population will cross 2.7 million by 2021.
He said growth in different geographic areas of the State now called for a reorganisation of administrative structure of East Coast Railway (ECoR). He requested the Railway Minister to establish new divisional headquarters at Rayagada, Jajpur-Keonjhar Road and Rourkela by extending the jurisdiction of ECoR to include Banspani-Padapahar section, Bhadrak-Lakhmanath section in Khurda road division and Jharsuguda-Barsuan-Kiriburu, Rourkela-Nuagaon and Jharsuguda-Himagiri section in Sambalpur division.
The Chief Minister reiterated the demand of the State for a package of `5000 crore in the Railway Budget 2016-17.

Now official twitter account of saying these railway demands for odisha:
1. CM @Naveen_Odisha commended @PMOIndia proposal to setup NINEI at Bhubaneswar & sought early announcement & fund release for kickoff.
2. Introduce new train service from Puri to Mumbai via Sambalpur and Titlagarh (Not possible as no new trains this time).
3. DMU/MEMU services in Sambalpur-Jharsuguda-Rourkela, Cuttack-Paradeep, Bramhapur-Balasore & Rourkela-Keonjhar (Excellent demand).
4.
...
more...
Expedite construction of Wagon Factory at Sitalapali, Ganjam.
5. Explore modalities to setup Mass Rapid Transport System in Bhubaneswar-Cuttack.
6. Modernize Bhubaneswar station, develop Naraj as green field station, upgrade Cuttack & Puri Station Buildings (CTC building is already on of the best).
7. Commence construction along Burhamura-Chakulia, Gunupur-Theruvelli and Banspani-Barbil.
8. Extend eastern dedicated freight corridor from Dankuni to Brahmapur for seamless movement of freight.
9. Railway link between Jeypore-Malkangiri & Jeypore-Nawrangpur.
10. Accord National Project status to Sambalpur-Berhampur and Raygada-Gopalpur rail link.
11. Expedite setup of JV for rail infraprojects & divisional HQs at Rayagada, Jajpur-Keonjhar Road & Rourkela.
Most greatest request:
CM @Naveen_Odisha wrote to @RailMinIndia emphasizing #Odisha as top investment destination & sought Rs5000cr allocation in Rail Budget.
Odisha deserves it because:
Odisha contributed in excess of Rs14000cr for 2014-15 to railways despite lower than national average rail density & route length.
Now that's some "noble" demands for odisha state.
