#Kolkata: The number of victims among the railway workers is increasing. Multiple drivers and guards were killed. In this situation, it has been directed to arrest the railway workers for boarding special staff special trains without permission.
The state has already allowed health workers and bank workers to board the staff special train. A letter to this effect was given to the Railways on behalf of the State. Rail has accepted the state’s request. Apart from these, the railways have said that they will arrest those who board the special train. They will be arrested under Section 147 of the Indian Railways. Staff should be allowed to board special trains, an application that is increasing day by day in multiple offices of the railways. Even the DRM office, CPRO office, emergency service counter are calling everywhere and more than one passenger is applying. Railway officials are having a hard time because of the application and folly.
Prior to the lockdown, the state government had informed the railways to stop local train services in the state. Only staff special trains are running. Staff special trains are running from Howrah, Sealdah, Kharagpur, Bandel, Burdwan at selected times of the day. And instead of traveling, Bhuri Bhuri application is being submitted to the railway officials. The situation has reached such a point that the railways have become anxious to keep the land phone disconnected. The state government had requested that the health workers be given the opportunity to board their staff special train. Accordingly, the railways has allowed government and non-government workers to board local trains. According to sources, the Kolkata Municipality had sought permission from the railways to board the staff special train. The rail counter informed them to arrange vaccinations for the municipal railway workers. Then they will also make arrangements. As a result, even though this decision is pending, various problems are going on every day while getting up to the staff special.
Rooms have already been set aside for police and health workers. However, according to several railway officials, many people are getting up in the staff special. As a result, the number of victims among the railway workers is increasing. In this case, the people in charge of RPF and ticket checking have been asked to take action. The DRM of Sealdah said, “So many phone calls and letters are coming that we are having trouble this time. Many have come and shown it again. Let the state take care of them. We have no other way to do it.” In the current situation, the railway officials are thinking that there will be no problem in running the train again.
