Citing losses, the Railways has decided to stop train services in eight routes in the state, leading Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Friday to accuse the Centre of using “strong-arm tactics” to “deprive Bengal”. Mamata’s reaction comes in the wake of the chief commercial manager of Eastern Railway, writing to state Chief Secretary Malay Kumar De, stating that train services in eight routes needed to be terminated as they were incurring losses. The letter — received on Friday by the chief secretary — said the services either needed to be stopped or the state government should bear half of the losses incurred.
The Eastern Railway, in a statement, said the letter was sent on the basis of the report of Public Account

Committee as an Action Taken Report. It added that such letters are sent to other state governments as well and that Eastern Railway has no such intention of closure of any route. This decision can only be taken by the Ministry of Railways and not by the Eastern Railway, the statement said.
Speaking to mediapersons at state secretariat Nabanna, Mamata said: “How can this happen? How can they do this without even consulting the state government? These are socially-viable projects. Railways have a social responsibility. The Centre is using strong-arm tactics against Bengal. It is depriving Bengal.”
Alleging that the Centre is dictating terms by force, she added: “I will not allow such deprivation of Bengal by the central government.” Referring to the loss-sharing theory, Mamata said the Centre was already taking a lot of money in terms of taxes and cess. “Why are they asking for more money? Besides, they are also taking Rs 50,000 crore every year as repayment of loans taken by the previous government,” she added.
As per the letter, the eight train routes are — Burdwan-Katwa, Sonarpur-Canning, Santipur-Nabadwipghat, Barasat-Hasnabad, Baruipur-Namkhana, Ballygunj-Budge Budge, Kalyani Simanta-Sealdah and Bhimgarh-Palastali.

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee today slammed the Centre for deciding to stop eight routes of the Eastern Railway in the state on the plea that they were "not commercially viable".
She dubbed the decision as a "politically motivated" one.
Banerjee told reporters at the state secretariat that the chief commercial manager of the Eastern Railways had written to the state chief secretary, saying that these routes were not commercially viable and that they would be stopped unless the state bore 50 per cent of the cost involved.
"How

can they (Centre) take such a decision without discussing it with the state government? This is a central government project, why will the state pay?" she asked.
Pointing out that the railways had recently increased the train fares, she sought to know why these projects were being stopped.
Stating that the Centre was collecting taxes from the state, the chief minister alleged that it had stopped many projects in the state and curtailed funds for many others.
"There is a limit to misuse of power. We will not tolerate it," she added.
The eight routes which are to be stopped are Burdwan- Katwa, Sonarpur-Canning, Santipur-Nabadwipghat, Barasat- Hasnabad, Baruipur-Namkhana, Ballygunj-Budge Budge, Kalyani- Kalyani Simanta and Bhimgarh-Palastali, Banerjee said.

নিজস্ব প্রতিবেদন : কাটোয়া-বর্ধমান ও কাটোয়া-আহমেদপুর রেলপথে আগামী বছরের শুরুতেই যাত্রীবাহী ট্রেন চালানোর আশ্বাস দিলেন হাওড়া ডিভিশনের রেলওয়ে ম্যানেজার মনু গোয়েল। এর ফলে কাটোয়া জংশনের গুরুত্ব আরও বেড়ে গেল বলে দাবি ডিআরএম-এর। শুক্রবার কাটোয়ায় নবনির্মিত রেলপথ ও স্টেশনের পরিকাঠাম খতিয়ে দেখেন তিনি। সেই সঙ্গে কথা বলেন, কর্মীদের সঙ্গেও।
২১০ কোটি টাকা ব্যায়ে কাটোয়া বর্ধমান রেলপথের কাজ চলতি বছর অগস্টে শেষ হয়ে গেলেও, প্রযুক্তিগত ত্রুটির কারণে এখনও সেই পথে যাত্রীবাহী ট্রেন চালানো সম্ভব হয়নি। মনু গোয়েল বলেন, এবার সেই ত্রুটি কাটিয়ে ওই পথে যাত্রীবাহী ট্রেন অল্পদিনের মধ্যেই চালানো হবে। সেই সঙ্গে, ১৮৫ কোটি টাকা ব্যায়ে নতুন করে তৈরি করা কাটোয়া-আহমেদপুর রেলপথের কাজও ডিসেম্বরের প্রথম সপ্তাহেই শেষ হয়েছে। এবার এই দুটি পথেই ট্রেন চালিয়ে এবার উন্নতিকরণ করতে চলেছে রেল।

প্রসঙ্গত, ২০১০ সালে কাটোয়া-বর্ধমান রুটে ন্যারোগেজ লাইন বন্ধ করে তা ব্রডগেজের রূপান্তরিত করা হয়। এরপর ২০১২ সালে বর্ধমান থেকে বলগোনা পর্যন্ত ২৪.৫ কিলোমিটার রেলপথে ইএমইউ রেক চালানো হয়। ২০১৪-র ডিসেম্বরে কাটোয়া-বলগোনা ২৬.৭ কিলোমিটার ন্যারোগেজ রেলপথ বন্ধ করে, ২০১৫ সালে সেখানে ব্রডগেজ লাইন পাতার কাজ শুরু করে রেল। কাটোয়া তাপবিদ্যুৎ কেন্দ্রের আর্থিক সহযোগিতায় কাটোয়া-বর্ধমান এই রেলপথকে ব্রডগেজে রূপান্তরের কাজ করা হয়। অন্যদিকে, ২০১৩-র জানুয়ারিতে কাটোয়া-আহমেদপুর ৫১ কিমি ন্যারোগেজ রেলপথকে বিদায় জানিয়ে সেই পথকেও ব্রডগেজে রূপান্তরের কাজ শুরু হয়।
ডিআরএম বলেন, দুটি রেলপথে পরিষেবা চালু হলে কাটোয়ার সঙ্গে এলাকার আর্থিক বিকাশ ঘটবে।

BURDWAN: Passengers aboard the 37913 Howrah-Katwa local had a close shave on Monday when the engine's motorman fell unconscious, bringing the train to an abrupt halt in West Bengal's Burdwan district. Sources said the train was just 7 km away from the last station, Katwa, when motorman I Halder, 45, lost consciousness and fell onto the track, which caused serious injuries to his head. The train remained stationary for nearly two hours, following which some passengers deboarded their coaches and spotted the driver.
Halder was subsequently taken to Katwa on an e-rickshaw and admitted to a hospital. After the accident, railway officials sent another motorman and guard to complete the rest of the journey.

He was shifted to the Eastern Railway's BR Singh Hospital in Sealdah where his condition is serious but 'stable', a senior railway official said, adding that the an investigation has been ordered.
