- reach the railway station from the bus station side conveniently - other than to go over the 1 kms approximately lengthy bridge and come down and then reach across
- to install necessary street light for public
- to consider the huge number of public who rely that route mainly to reach the bus station, railway station from both sides and the ashram and market and shopping area and residential area situated on one side of the gate.
- never ever thought about the elderly or rather even young who has to go across two or even three waiting trains, which can move any time when the pass underneath them
- or even never ever thought about the public who has to go past the railway track which is often made filthy by the excretory output from the passing train
The sad thing is that this case is made aware to the legislator, railway authorities, electricity board, bus terminal authorities and even police. It looks like someone somewhere is competing with the other as to who will make the first step to solve this issue.
The day is not too far, when we will get to hear a tragedy of someone getting run over by a starting train, which has stopped when they tried to move down under.
I really pity everyone for this plight, especially the elders and sick, when even young find it difficult to cross over.
I tried my best efforts to alert all concerned about this danger several times, and look forward to added assistance from Praja members and general public to resolve this.
