भारत-चीन की सीमा के आसपास जल्द दौड़ेंगी ट्रैनें

सरकार का चीन की सीमा के साथ एक सामरिक लाइन के रूप में रेलवे लाइनों का निर्माण करने का विचार है.

रेल राज्य मंत्री मनोज सिन्हा ने आज राज्यसभा को यह जानकारी देते हुए बताया कि रक्षा मंत्रालय ने भारत चीन सीमा पर चार सामरिक लाइनों की पहचान की है जो 378 किमी लंबी मिसामारी, तेंगा, तवांग और 498 किमी के फासले वाली बिलासपुर, मनाली, लेह और 227 किमी की पासीघाट, तेजू, रूपाई, साथ ही 227 किमी लंबी नॉर्थ लखीमपुर बामे, अलोंग, सीलापत्थर रेल लाइनें हैं.

ट्रेनों में अब तकिया, चादर लेना हुआ महंगा

लंबी दूरी की आरक्षित श्रेणी वाली ट्रेन में सफर करना अब और महंगा होने वाला है। अब आपको चादर व तकिए के कवर के लिए अलग से पैसे देने होंगे। 

सफर के दौरान चादर, तौलिया, कंबल व तकिया कवर को लेकर यात्री बराबर शिकायत करते रहते हैं। इसमें गंदगी को लेकर कई लोग इस्तेमाल तक नहीं करते। इसे देखते हुए रेलवे ने डिस्पोजेबल चादर व तकिया का कवर देने की योजना बनाई है। रेल बजट में इसकी घोषणा भी की गई थी। 

अभी गरीब रथ ट्रेन को छोड़ दें तो अन्य ट्रेनों में वातानुकूलित यान के यात्रियों को कंबल, चादर, तकिए व तौलिया के लिए अलग से चार्ज नहीं किया जाता है। यात्रा किराए में ही इसे यात्रियों को मुहैया कराया जाता है। गरीब रथ ट्रेन में इसके लिए यात्रियों से 25-35 रुपये अलग से लिए जाते है।
