Report by OD bureau; Dhenkanal: Today at Gengutia Railway Gate Anti Corruption Committee workers under the leadership of their President & great farmer leader Er. Debashisha Hota, agitated for a Passanger Halt for the Kamakhyanagar & Bhuban People. The Dhenkanal Sadar Tahasildar rushed to the spot , received the 3-charter demand note & give assurance to take immediate action by the administration consulting with the Principal Chief Engineer of East Coast Railways.
Here noteworthy that, hundreds of Kamakhyanagar & Bhuban People are daily coming to go by trains towards Cuttack, Bhubaneswar & Angul. They watch the trains in the morning when coming by Bus at this Railway Gate, but can’t step in. They’ve to go to the Dhenkanal Station, 4 km away, step down at Station Bazar & run for half kilometer. This is pathetic.
Again, now after demands for number of times by the Committee, one fly-over is under construction. The vehicles of the contractor are standing for more than hours in both sides which caused unnecessary traffic-jam even for emergency services like ambulance & fire extinguisher vehicles. When sufferers moved to lodge complaint against this, they are misbehaved by the Gatekeepers & Senior Section Engineer.
Declare this Gate as Passenger Halt, take serious action against the corrupted officials & the Contractor. Otherwise, we’ll intensify the agitation all over the District, Hota threatened on this occasion.
