The passengers on pilgrimage to temples in South India seemed to have started off on the wrong foot. The special train on ‘Dakshin Bharat Darshan’, being organised by the Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) was stopped at Vijayawada Railway Station on Friday by officials to fix certain problems in one of the compartments forcing the 850-odd passengers to wait for four excruciating hours. The train carrying the passengers started at 11 pm at Secunderabad Railway Station on Thursday night for the eight-day trip. Had the railway staff at the Secunderabad station done their job diligently, the passengers would not have had to go through the hardship, said a passenger.
The facilities in the BD-11 compartment, were much in need

of maintenance. Sanitation was in shambles, and lights and fans were dysfunctional.
Admitting the fact, railway officials here said they had to stop the train and carry out necessary repairs following complaints from the passengers in the compartment. After the train reached Vijayawada, the angry passengers approached the officials and resorted to a protest demonstration at the station over poor facilities. Only then the officials woke up and got down to rectify things. The four hours the railway staff took to restore facilities proved too much for the passengers who got into argument with officials.
Finally, the train, which was to depart at 7:30 am left the station at 11:45 am after the repairs.
“This is Swachh Bharat! Come and see how dirty are the compartments,” said one of the passengers in a sarcastic tone. Others questioned the commitment of the Union government to ‘Swachh Bharat’ if the poor conditions in the train compartments were any indication.“We undertook this trip with great expectations. But within hours after boarding the train, we realised how wrong we were. We booked our seat in the compartment no. 11. You ask me what is not wrong? Everything. It seems officials used a discarded compartment for the trip,” another woman passenger complained bitterly.
When contacted, SCR officials admitted their fault and said operations department failed to inspect the compartment prior to the journey. “The compartment came from other regions and was not inspected thoroughly. We will ensure this kind of incidents never happen in future,” said Uma Shankar Kumar, an official from SCR -Secunderabad.The eight-day ‘Dakshin Bharat Darshan’ covers places like Tiruchirappally, Kanyakumari, Madurai, Rameswaram, Kanchi and other temples in the south.

Kozhikode railway station in Kerala has been declared the "cleanest" in the country by railway commuters while the Hazrat Nizamuddin station in Delhi is at the lowest rung, said a survey by an app-based travel portal on Tuesday.
"Kozhikode was ranked the best railway station with a rating of 4.4 out of 5 while Hazrat Nizamuddin was rated the lowest by our users in terms of cleanliness," ixigo said in a release.
"Swarna Jayanti Rajdhani has been rated the cleanest train, while the Karnataka Express got the lowest ratings," the survey said.
The

app-based travel agency claimed that around 40 per cent of the highest user rated railway stations on the basis of cleanliness are in southern India, followed by 20 per cent in central India and 20 per cent in the west.
The survey claimed that the railway stations rated not so clean are in Uttar Pradesh, Delhi, and Rajasthan.
It said that others that made to the list of best rail stations includes Hubli Junction in West Bengal, Davangere in Karnataka, Dhanbad Junction in Jharkhand, Jabalpur in Madhya Pradesh, Bilaspur Junction in Chhattisagarh, Vadodara and Rajkot Junctions in Gujarat, Falna in Rajasthan, and Vijayawada Junction in Andhra Pradesh.
Stations with the lowest ratings included Muzaffarpur and Gaya Junctions in Bihar, Mathura and Varanasi Junctions in Uttar Pradesh, Ajmer Junction in Rajasthan, and Bhusaval Junction in Maharashtra.
"Indian railways has been growing by 6.58 per cent over the last couple of months in 2017 alone and with effective steps taken to modernise it across the board, the ridership has only gone up," ixigo CEO and co-founder Aloke Bajpai said.
Although Railways has already been working towards improving the quality of train travel in terms of cleanliness and hygiene, there still remains ample scope to improve services across the board as noticed in this study," he said.
Ixigo works closely with the Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation to facilitate train ticket booking for over seven million users on the app.
In May last year, the Railways announced Beas station as the cleanest, followed by Vishakhapatnam and Khammam, out of 407 stations in India.
The list of the cleanest stations was released based on a survey carried out by the Railways.
Among the 75 bigger and busy railway stations, Visakhapatnam is the cleanest, followed by Secunderabad and Jammu.
Stations at Jogbani, Madhubani and Sagauli -- all in Bihar -- were the dirtiest in the overall ranking. Among the most busy stations, Darbhanga in Bihar was the dirtiest, followed by Bhopal in Madhya Pradesh, and Ambala in Haryana.
