Science Express at Tiruchi

Science Express, the mobile exhibition on wheels, will be stationed at Tiruchi Railway Junction for three days from Sunday. The bio-diversity special, a joint initiative of the Department of Science and Technology and Ministry of Environment and Forests, was flagged off in New Delhi in April. It is travelling to 62 locations across the country. The Science Express will be stationed at platform no.7 at the junction. The exhibition will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on all three days with free entry. Vehicles carrying school children are to be parked on Kallukuzhi side of the junction so that the students could have easy access to platform no.7, a railway press release said.

To go over or under?

At ‘Namma Metro — a dialogue’, there was a contradiction of sorts on the issue of allowing the metro to go underground. On the one hand, Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Ltd. (BMRCL) managing director N. Sivasailam said “tunnelling is ideal for Bangalore”, and on the other, he rejected requests by many who preferred it going underground in their areas.

According to him, tunnelling in Bangalore is ideal because there is more stability due to rock formation, but it is very expensive. “Cost of tunnelling in Bangalore is three times higher than in other cities,” he said. “Metro going over the ground could disturb the population,” Mr. Sivasailam added, citing the example of densely populated Chickpet where the metro is to be underground.

In the proposed Gottigere–Nagawara line in Phase 2, he said. “We propose to take the line underground from Dairy Circle to Nagawara as it passes through populated areas such as Tannery Road. Going over the ground means large-scale destruction. It is cheaper to go underground here; this costs Rs. 10,000 crore.”

He, however, did not agree with suggestions of residents of Bannerghatta Road and BTM Layout to go underground to save a number of properties. “More properties will go in for underground station as they are five times bigger than the over ground stations.”

अंबाला-दिल्ली एक्सप्रेस दौड़ेगी पटरी पर

जागरण संवाद केंद्र, यमुनानगर : केंद्रीय मंत्री सैलजा की तरफ से यमुनानगर के लोगों को एक और सौगात मिलने जा रही है। उनके प्रयास से अंबाला-दिल्ली एक्सप्रेस वाया यमुनानगर एक नई ट्रेन शुरू हो रही है। 9 अगस्त को सैलजा इस ट्रेन को हरी झंडी देंगी। उस दिन वह ट्रेन में अंबाला से सवार होकर यमुनानगर भी आएंगी।

ट्रेन प्रतिदिन सुबह पांच बजकर 40 मिनट पर अंबाला से चलेगी और दिल्ली से यह एक बजकर 40 मिनट पर अंबाला के लिए वापस होगी। इस ट्रेन को चलाने के लिए पिछले चार साल से मांग की जा रही थी। ट्रेन के चलने से आम आदमी के अलावा सबसे ज्यादा फायदा व्यापारी वर्ग को होगा, क्योंकि यहां से हर रोज व्यापार के सिलसिले में व्यापारी दिल्ली जाते हैं।

एक संयुक्त पत्रकार वार्ता में जिला कांग्रेस शहरी के प्रधान अनिल गोयल व रेल उपभोक्ता सलाहकार समिति के अंबाला मंडल के सदस्य राजेंद्र चिटकारा ने बताया कि वह पिछले चार साल से अंबाला-दिल्ली वाया जगाधरी रूट पर नई एक्सप्रेस गाड़ी चलाने की मांग कर रहे थे। उन्होंने कहा कि केंद्रीय मंत्री कुमारी सैलजा के प्रयास से अब उनकी यह मांग पूरी हो गई है।

कुमारी सैलजा जगाधरी स्टेशन के साथ यमुनानगर का नाम जोड़े जाने के लिए प्रयासरत हैं। उनकी यह मांग भी जल्द ही सिरे चढ़ने वाली है। उन्होंने कहा कि स्टेशन का नाम जगाधरी होने की वजह से कई सवारियों को कई बार बड़ी समस्या आती है। वह यमुनानगर और जगाधरी के चक्कर में उलझकर या तो अंबाला पहुंच जाते हैं या फिर किसी अन्य स्टेशन पर उतर जाते हैं।

मांगों से डीआरएम को अवगत कराया

जगाधरी स्टेशन पर इंदौर-अमृतसर एक्सप्रेस, अकाल तख्त एक्सप्रेस व जम्मूतवी-वाराणसी एक्सप्रेस का ठहराव किया जाए। प्लेट फॉर्म नंबर एक का विस्तार करते हुए उसे अंबाला वाली साइड़ में बढ़ाया जाए। रेलवे स्टेशन का नाम जगाधरी-यमुनानगर किया जाए। प्लेट फॉर्म नंबर एक व दो पर पूरी, रोटी, कुलचे आदि खाने की चीजों की व्यवस्था की जाए। प्लेट फॉर्म नंबर एक पर वाटर कूलर लगाया जाए और वर्तमान वाटर कूलर का स्थान बदलकर उसे उचित स्थान पर लगाया जाए। स्वचालित सीढि़यों का प्रावधान किया जाए, ताकि बुजुर्ग तथा असहाय व्यक्ति सुगमता से आ जा सकें। प्लेट फॉर्म पर शुलभ शौचालयों का निर्माण करवाया जाए। गाड़ी के डिब्बों के क्रम 1, 2, 3 आदि प्लेट फॉर्म पर अंकित किए जाएं, ताकि यात्रियों को डिब्बों की सही जानकारी मिल सके। अग्रसेन चौंक से स्टेशन को जाने वाले रास्ते से अतिक्रमण हटाया जाए। नए रेलवे पुल के पास से एक अन उपयोगी बिल्डिंग को गिराया जाए ताकि वहां कोई अनैतिक कार्य न हो।

मथुरा के स्टॉफ से चलेगी मथुरा-इलाहाबाद एक्सप्रेस

जागरण संवाददाता, मथुरा: अब जयपुर के लिए यात्रियों को रोजाना एक और ट्रेन उपलब्ध रहेगी। मथुरा-इलाहाबाद एक्सप्रेस अब जयपुर तक संचालित होगी। ट्रेन को मथुरा के ही ड्राइवर और गार्ड जयपुर तक लेकर जाएंगे।

आगरा मंडल छोटा होने के कारण यहां के गार्ड और ड्राइवर अधिक दूरी की गाड़ी नहीं चला पाते हैं। जिस कारण उनका मानदेय कम बनता है। वह लगातार नयी गाड़ियों की मांग करते रहते है। इसी मांग को एनसीआरएमयू ने चुनाव में मुद्दा बनाया था। इसे पूरा भी कराया गया। मथुरा के शाखा मंत्री एनके शर्मा ने बताया कि यह ट्रेन अब मथुरा के स्टॉफ से चलवायी जाएगी।

इंसेट इलाज के लिये नहीं जाना पडे़गा दिल्ली

आगरा मंडल के कर्मचारियों को इलाज के लिए अब दिल्ली नहीं जाना पड़ेगा। आगरा के दो हॉस्पीटल अनुबंधित हो गए हैं। एक जनवरी से जो कर्मचारी वीआरएस में आएंगे उनके बच्चों को लिखित परीक्षा भी नहीं देनी पड़ेगी। यूनियन पदाधिकारियों ने इस सफलता पर हर्ष व्यक्त किया है। इस दौरान वीके जसवाल, सदन सक्सेना, जेवीएस यादव, हरवीर ंिसह, कैलाश उपाध्याय, जितेंद्र, जेएल शर्मा, पीएल मीना, मानसिंह मीना आदि उपस्थित थे।

Contraband now via rail

16 tonnes of banned tobacco products seized from train at Central station

Several tobacco products that have been banned in the State are finding their way into the city by rail.

On Saturday, the food safety and drug administration department seized over 16 tonnes of chewable tobacco products at the Central railway station on a train that had come in from Nizamuddin.

Railway police officers and food safety officials are now trying to determine who the wholesale dealer of the products is.

“We found 54 parcels of banned tobacco products, our largest-ever consignment. We have asked railway officials to identify the source of the products. We will destroy them after collecting samples on Sunday,” said a food safety official.

Ever since the ban on carcinogenic chewable tobacco products such as gutka and pan masala was announced in May, trains have been used bring in these products to the State.

A few weeks ago, 1,000 kg of such products that had been stored in various homes in Ayanavaram and Vadapalani were seized.

Despite regular crackdowns on commercial establishments across the city, the sale of gutka and pan masala has continued in the city, unabated, the official said. This is mainly because wholesalers have begun sourcing the products from other parts of the country, storing them in residential complexes and selling them only to known, regular customers.

Big distributors in George Town continue to receive parcels that come in from other parts of the country because the Railway does not disclose details of senders and recipients, so there is no way to check where the parcels are from or whom they are going to.

“Identifying the source of the consignment is a challenge. The food safety department has requested the Railway to take efforts to prevent such illegal transportation of banned products,” said an official.

Political party connections of many of the wholesalers pose another problem in the implementation of the ban, an official said.

The seized products are likely to be destroyed at the Kodungaiyur dumping yard.

Food safety officials are now educating food business operators, including 56 wholesalers in Chennai district. But a chunk of the wholesale dealers operating from Sowcarpet and T. Nagar are not cooperating with the government, officials said.

Under the ban, the manufacture, storage, distribution and sale of carcinogenic chewable forms of tobacco is forbidden in Tamil Nadu.
