New Trains in coming railway budget, State BJP

Ahead of Railway Budget, the State BJP has requested Union Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu to introduce two new trains for improved rail connectivity in Odisha.

Requesting for a new Bhubaneswar-Mumbai Duronto Express, president of the State unit of the party KV Singhdeo said Konark Express is unable to meet the increasing demand of passenger movement between the two cities. Currently, there is only one direct train from Bhubaneswar to Mumbai – the Konark Express – which takes more than 36 hours to reach the destination.

Since a large number of people from the State is working in various sectors in Mumbai, a non-stop Duronto Express will reduce travel time and make it convenient for them, he said.

Singhdeo urged the Union Railway Minister for a new Express train from Titlagarh to Allahabad. Purushottam Express, being the only train from Puri to Allahabad, completely bypasses Western Odisha, he added.

In a separate letter to the Union Railway Minister, former member of Parliament Bhabani Shankar Hota demanded introduction of a new train from Sambalpur to Allahabad.

“A new pair of Rajdhani Express may be introduced from Bhubaneswar to New Delhi on three days a week via Cuttack-Sambalpur-Jharsuguda-Bilaspur. Apart from benefiting passengers from Western Odisha and Chhattisgarh, it will shorten the travel distance to Delhi by 178 kms,” Hota said.

Hota urged Prabhu to consider Bargarh-Nuapada new line which will provide a third corridor to Raipur from Jharsuguda. The Visakhapatnam-Amritsar Express should be made daily with improved coaches, he said.

Asking for adequate budgetary support for early completion of Khurda Road-Balangir line, Hota demanded a driver training centre in Sambalpur Railway Division.

Cops Make a ‘U-turn’ in Sugrib Kidnap Case

Even as Bargarh police on Wednesday tried to take Sugrib Ranbeda, who was allegedly kidnapped by a minister, to Bhubaneswar to identify the place where he claimed he was confined, the cops had to drop the plan following orders from higher authorities.

Two weeks ago, Sugrib, a member of Rusuda Service Co-operative Society, had alleged that he was kidnapped and confined to the official residence of Handloom and Textile Minister Snehangini Chhuria in Bhubaneswar to prevent him from voting in cooperative election. Election to the cooperative society was held on January 25.

After Leader of the Opposition Narasingh Mishra raised the issue in the Assembly, police decided to take him to Bhubaneswar where he claimed he was confined to a room. While police were approaching Boudh, one of the officers received a call and was asked to take Sugrib back to his village at Rusuda.

In his complaint to the Bargarh SP on January 27, Sugrib had alleged that on January 18, supporters of Chhuria – Sadanand Khamari of Bagiapali, P Satyanarayan of Bheden and Dumatsen Rana of Dhatukpali – took him to the residence of the Minister in Bargarh. Later, he was taken to the Minister’s residence at Bhubaneswar.

When he requested the Minister to allow him to cast his vote, Chhuria allegedly locked him in her house and went to Kalahandi on a tour. Later, he was dropped in his village, a day after the election, on January 25. “Though my son Durga had reported the matter to the police the same day, no action has been taken so far,” Sugrib alleged.

Bargarh SP Umashankar Dash said efforts are on to nab the persons named in the complaint.

Chhuria, however, refuted the allegations. “The charges are false and politically motivated. I am in no way involved in the incident,” she said, adding that she is ready to face any inquiry.
