Cong blocks rail protesting against delay


Jalpaiguri: Congress supporters blocked the DMU train of the Radhikapur-New Jalpaiguri section  at Kaliagunj Railway station and staged demonstration protesting against the irregularities in its operations.

They alleged that the train is not operated with importance and is always delayed by nearly four to five hours daily.

The train is stopped in the middle of the night in the midst of open fields resulting in cases of robbery. Although the railway administration has regularly been intimated about the fact, no steps were undertaken. The passengers suffer the most due to the negligence of the railway authorities and they also suffer from a sense of insecurity.

The congress supporters threatened to launch bigger demonstration if the problem is not resolved quickly.
