মহীশাসন রুটে আরও একটি ট্রেন আজ থেকে যাত্রা শুরু করল। ভারত-বাংলাদেশ আন্তর্জাতিক সীমান্তের কাঁটাতার ঘেঁষা এই স্টেশনে এখন প্রতি দিন দু’জোড়া ট্রেন শিলচর থেকে যাতায়াত করছে। বাদ শুধু রবিবার। সে দিন করিমগঞ্জ-মহীশাসন রুটে কোনও ট্রেন চলছে না। নতুন আরও এক জোড়া ট্রেনের জেরে শিলচর-করিমগঞ্জের মধ্যে সকালে একটি ট্রেনের যে দাবি উঠেছিল, তা মিটবে বলে দাবি রেল সূত্রের।
শিলচরের স্টেশন ম্যানেজার বিপ্লব দাস জানিয়েছেন, এত দিন শুধু বিকেল ৩টে ২৫ মিনিটে শিলচর থেকে ট্রেন ছাড়ত মহীশাসনের দিকে। আজ থেকে নতুন ট্রেনটি যাচ্ছে সকাল ৬টায়। করিমগঞ্জ হয়ে অবশ্য শিলচর-আগরতলা ট্রেন প্রতি দিন সকাল ৮টায় রওনা হয়। যাত্রীদের চাহিদায় যেমন এই রুটে ট্রেন বাড়ানো হল, তেমনই যাত্রী মেলে না বলে জিরিবাম রুটে ট্রেন চলাচল এক দিন কমানো হয়েছে। তিন দিনের জায়গায় এখন তা চলবে

শুধু সোম ও শুক্রবার। লক্ষ্মীপুর মহকুমার উপর দিয়ে মণিপুরের একমাত্র স্টেশন জিরিবামে যাতায়াত করলেও এই রুটে স্টেশনগুলি জনবহুল এলাকা থেকে অনেক দূরে। লক্ষ্মীপুর মহকুমার যে কোনও স্টেশনে যেতে যে পরিমাণ অটো ভাড়া লাগে, তার চেয়ে কম টাকায় সড়কপথে শিলচরে যাতায়াত সেরে নেওয়া যায়। তবে বিপ্লববাবু আশাবাদী, এই ট্রেনেরও চাহিদা বাড়বে। জিরিবাম থেকে টুপুল পর্যন্ত নতুন রেললাইন নির্মাণের কাজ চলছে। পরে যাবে ইম্ফল পর্যন্ত। সে সময় মণিপুর এই রুটেই রেললাইনে বাইরের সঙ্গে যুক্ত হবে।
এ দিকে, দক্ষিণী ট্রেনের সংযোগ ঘটাতে শিলচর-গুয়াহাটি একটি বিশেষ ট্রেন চালানো হচ্ছে। তাতে বাতানুকূল ৩, স্লিপার ১৩, চেয়ার কার ১, সাধারণ ১ এবং এসএলআর ২টি কামরা থাকছে। সপ্তাহে শুধু শনিবার রাত ৮টা ৫০ মিনিটে শিলচর থেকে ছাড়ে ট্রেনটি। রেল সূত্রে খবর, ওই ট্রেনেও চাহিদামতো যাত্রী হচ্ছে না। পরীক্ষামূলক বা বিশেষ ট্রেন হওয়ায় যাত্রী না হওয়ার ব্যাপারটি সুখকর নয় বলেই জানান বিপ্লববাবু। তবে যাত্রীদের বক্তব্য, ট্রেনটি সুপারফাস্ট বলে ভাড়া অত্যন্ত বেশি। এ ছাড়া, দক্ষিণী সংযোগী না করে ট্রেনটিকে সরাসরি শিলচর পর্যন্ত চালালেই যাত্রী বেড়ে যাবে। সরাসরি চেন্নাই হয়ে তিরুবনন্তপুরম যাওয়ার ট্রেন পেলে এই অঞ্চলের মানুষেরও বিরাট উপকার হবে বলে অভিমত সকলের।

BADARPUR, Sept 14 - The reported decision of the Railway Ministry to set up the rail division at Silchar instead of Badarpur has evoked strong reactions in this railway town.
Last year also Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu had said that the new Railway Division will be set up at Silchar, and not Badarpur. His announcement then also was strongly condemned by all sections of people of Badarpur, various political parties like the Congress, BJP, Socialist Party, SUCI, CPM, CPI (M), AIUDF as also the Railway Unions, Railway employees and the members of the Badarpur Rail Division Implementation Demand Committee unanimously.

a strongly-worded statement, the general secretary of the Badarpur Rail Division Implementation Demand Committee (BRDIDC), Sukumar Ghosh told this mediaperson that the people of Badarpur will not tolerate the indiscreet decision of the Ministry of Railways as also the recent comments on the subject, as the demand for Badarpur Rail Division has matured into a ‘mass demand’, having been first voiced way back in 1988, from when the movement also began. Sukumar Ghosh very clearly narrated the entire picture of the importance, necessity, reasonableness as well as the logic of the Badarpur Rail Division. He warned that in support of the setting up of a full-fledged Railway Division at Badarpur, the movement will not only continue but will now be more vigorous than earlier.
Ghosh said, “since 1988, our rail division movement has been non-violent. But now, it may change, if the Railways and the Central Government deprive Badarpur of its logical as well as reasonable claim.” Ghosh said that Badarpur is the appropriate, proper and the most suitable place for setting up a full-fledged railway division and there are many reasons for the claim, which are already in the public domain. He also said that Silchar is not at all a suitable place for a rail division. The essential requirements for the rail division are not present at Silchar and it will not be profitable for the Ministry of Railways to purchase vast lands for the purpose.
Ghosh alleged that a group of people along with some politicians of Barak Valley, who don’t want a rail division be set up at Badarpur, are misguiding and misleading the Railway officials and Union Ministers by giving wrong information, regarding Badarpur Rail Division.
Meanwhile, an urgent meeting was also held at Badarpur, under the presidentship of the BRDIDC president, Chandan Sen recently, where all the representatives of the various political parties were present. All the speakers vehemently criticised the decision of the Ministry of Railways, which has not yet been withdrawn. The meeting also sent a memorandum to the Minister of State for Railways, Rajen Gohain, mentioning the reasons in support of a full-fledged railway division at Badarpur.
