BADARPUR, Oct 21 - The Central Government has given the green signal to the Karimganj-Mahisashan-Kolkata Railway service via Bangladesh, which was a very old demand of Karimganj MP Radheshyam Biswas.
Biswas said that besides raising questions in Parliament on the issue, he also wrote letters to the Railway Ministry, mentioning the logic behind the demand. In an exclusive interview to ANN Service from Badarpur, explaining the logical reason behind the Karimganj-Kolkata Railway service, via Bangladesh, Biswas said, “It was my dream for a long time to have a train service from Karimganj-Mahisashan border to Kolkata, via Aakhaura of Bangladesh, as much time will be reduced. According to my view, to go to Kolkata, we have to travel 1,100 km by road, but

if we go to Kolkata from Mahisashan, via Aakhaura of Bangladesh, then approximately 600 km distance will be easily reduced. I mentioned this in my letter addressed to Ministry of Railways. In the letter, I earnestly requested to the Railway Ministry to sanction sufficient funds for this purpose, and in this connection, the Union Ministry has given the green signal. The Centre has decided to give loans at a cheap rate to the Hasina Government in Bangladesh to set up a broad gauge line in Bangladesh, which was gladly accepted by the latter for implementing this railway project speedily”. Replying to another question, Radheshyam Biswas said, it will be a epoch-making instant, if this railway service gets going.
Replying to another question, Biswas informed that in the ensuing session, he will raise the issue of declaration of Badarpur Rail Division immediately.

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.

BADARPUR, July 2 - The Badarpur Rail Division Implementation Demand Committee (BRDIDC) has demanded the setting up of a full-fledged railway division at Badarpur Railway Junction without any further delay. This was demanded by the BRDIDC, in a memorandum submitted to the NF Railway Area Manager of Badarpur Railway Subdivision, which was addressed to the Railway Minister Suresh Prabhakar Prabhu recently.
Submitting the memorandum, the BRDIDC general secretary Sukumar Ghosh, president Chandan Lal Sen, Ashim Mazumder and several other members vehemently criticised the Railway Ministry and the Central Government for not yet taking any decision in regard, which is a very old demand of the people, first voiced way back in 1988. They said that the demand for Badarpur Rail Division has

already become a ‘mass demand ’, and hence, cannot be ignored at all. They said, that all essential elements for a railway junction are available at the Badarpur Railway Junction and so, from this point of view, the Badarpur Railway subdivision must be converted to a railway division. “We are united for the next phase of the struggle”, they threatened.
Immediately after submitting the memorandum, the general secretary of the Badarpur Rail Division Implementation Demand Committee, Sukumar Ghosh, accompanied by the other members of the BRDIDC, while speaking to this correspondent narrated the entire picture, the necessity, reasonableness as well as the logic of the Badarpur Rail Division. Ghosh said that in support of the setting up a full-fledged rail division at Badarpur, the movement will continue and now it will be made more vigorous than earlier. In reply to a question, Ghosh said that since 1988, the movement was non-violent. But now, the contours of the movement may change, if the Railways and the Central Government continue to deprive Badarpur of its due. Programmes like protests, wearing of black badges, leaflet distribution will be taken up within a short period and a very good response is expected from every corner of Badarpur Railway town and the village areas.
Ghosh also said that ‘Badarpur’ is most suitable place for setting up of a full-fledged railway division. There are vast railway lands at Badarpur, and there is proper traffic control. Explaining the latter, he said from Badarpur to NC Hills the distance is 500 km; from Badarpur to Bhairabi: 460 km; from Badarpur to Tripura 510 km; and from Badarpur to Manipur 430 km. Due to these proper traffic controls, ‘Badarpur’ is the only ‘gateway’ to the neighbouring States of Tripura, Manipur, Mizoram and Meghalaya, along with the entire Barak Valley. In these places, the Railway services are being controlled by Badarpur. So, in this connection, if railway communication is set up with Bangladesh in the future, then automatically for geographic reasons, ‘Badarpur’ will be the most suitable place. Ghosh also said that Badarpur Rail Sub-Divisional Head Quarter has the required staff strength and is also economically viable for the purpose of a full-fledged rail division.
The BRDIDC in its memorandum, to the Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu, has mentioned the reasons for the need to set up a rail division at Badarpur. It said that since the British period, this railway junction is controlling and operating the Badarpur Railway Area of Tripura, Manipur, Mizoram, Greater Assam (Railway belt of Cachar, Karimganj, Hailakandi and the Dima Hasao districts) and Bangladesh in times of national and international necessities. Besides railway land lying vacant, uncared, unutilised and unlawfully occupied can be utilised for setting up the rail division at Badarpur. There are service-building facilities and staff-quarter facilities at Badarpur railway junction. Mechanical and signalling management for the complete sub-divisional zone are managed and controlled from this junction. All other infrastructure facilities are also available, the BRDIDC memorandum said.
It was also mentioned that during the opening
