The local residents in Purulia protested on Wednesday after knowing that railway services on a certain stretch would soon get suspended. The railway board recently cancelled 19 trains and diverted routes of seven other trains after a mines fire reached close to the tracks on the Dhanbad-Chandrapura segment. This has stopped the services of Jhargram-Purulia-Dhanbad Passenger, Ranchi-Jhalda-Kotshila-Dhanbad Passenger and Ranchi-Asansol-Howrah Intercity Express which pass through Purulia. The movement of goods train on the 34 km long Dhanbad-Chandrapura segment under the East Central Railway was also suspended. The board has also shut some railway lines in Jharkhand suspecting an underground mines fire. Meanwhile, most of the daily passengers in Purulia alleged that the rail authority did not even inform them the reason of suspension of those trains. Some of them also alleged that the authority should arrange some alternative trains for them. But no such steps were taken. "I was a regular...

passenger in some of the trains. But I was informed that these trains will not be available now. The rail authority did not even inform me the reason," said a local resident. The daily passengers have alleged that the students and the teachers would face a lot of problem as the summer vacation is over now. "We will inform the matter to local MLA and MP and request them to bring a solution to this issue," another resident said. It may be mentioned that on the basis of recommendation of the Director General of Mines Safety (DGMS), the railway board on June 10 had declared the Dhanbad-Chandrapura segment as unsafe for its closeness to Jharia mines fire. The land around the coalfield has also started caving in and the age-old railway tracks are no longer safe.

DRM HWH Dr. R Badrinarayan promised to strengthen railway connectivity in it's home state of West Bengal. Only Howrah and it's suburban stations are well connected while others have no proper direct connectivity. There is no smooth connectivity between South Bengal stations like Kharagpur, Asansol, Purulia, Adra, Medinipur and Bankura with North Bengal ones like Malda Town, Jalpaiguri, Coach-Behar, Siliguri etc. A proposal has been sent to the board to look into the matter.
Special trains will be plying soon between these stations. Reviewing the demand, further actions will be taken.

KOLKATA: The most efficient division of South Eastern Railway has now got a new 'A' category certified tag on one of it's station.
Purulia Jn. under Adra division will be a 'A' category station. Purulia crossed the targeted criteria in the month of FEB, 2017. The station has seen every phase starting from NG, MG to BG since 1900. It is the only station in SER to pass through the 'B' category house so fast with consecutive RGs of 13.1%, 20%, 28.53 and 38.87%.
MP Dr. Mriganko said,"The city has tremendous potential

to grow specially in the departments of IT and hardware industries, situated at the center of industrial belt. It's developing rate will be increasing day by day. Purulia is among the first cities of West Bengal to start E-Rickshaws on pilot and commercial basis." He asked the authorities of division to start high priority premium trains from PRR as presently there is none such to prefer.
Reviewing to the resolution, DRM Adra said to take time for the upgrade. Passenger amenities work are at full pace in Bokaro like new platforms, escalators etc. After that work will start at PRR. Purulia's status as 'A' category will be upgraded in the database after all required work completes but more priority will be given from now.
DCM, Bhanskar said,"We have got a brother of Bokaro now. We will try our best to upgrade them to best."

जब सुविधा मिलने लगेगी तो लोग खुद ही जान जायेंगे
हमारे देश के मंत्री नेता जिस दिन कार्यों को पूरा करवाकर कहे की अब आज से आप सभी को ये सुविधा मिलने लगेगी तब जाकर हमारे देश का विकास अच्छे से होगा अभी वर्तमान समय में नेता मंत्री चुनावी जोश में आकर बहुत ढेर सारे वादे करके चले जाते हैं लेकिन उन्हें कभी वो पूरा नहीं कर पाते हैं
