  1. VISAKHAPATNAM RAILWAY PLATFORMS UNBEARABLE SMELL AT PLATFORMS 2 TO 7. NOBODY IS INTERESTED. PASSENGERS WHO WAIT FOR BOARDING TRAINS HAVE TO BEAR THE SMELL. THIS SITUATION CONTINUES MONTHS TOGETHER. NO DISPLAY OF COACH NUMBERS AND PASSENGERS HAVE TO RUN AFTER ARRIVAL OF T RAIN TO BOARD THE TRAIN. IMAGINE THE PLIGHT OF SENIOR CITIZEN. THOUGH PROMISED TO BUILD A MODEL STATION 5 YEARS BACK NOT EVEN 10% DEVELOPMENT IS MADE. NO ESCALATORS. AS LONG AS THIS ZONE CONTROLLED BY ODISHA NO IMPROVEMENT CAN BE EXPECTED. NO PLANNED SPECIAL TRAINS DURING SUMMER. NOT GETTING EVEN TATKAL TICKETS. PAY THOUSANDS OF RUPEES TO BROKERS AND BOARD THE TRAIN. TICKET COST 300 BROKER COST 1000.

  2. Recently nearly hundred people of Telugu families were returning from Varanasi to Visakhapatnam when students of Bihar, who were attending some exams, boarded the train. They misbehaved with the Telugu families, beat them up and forcibly occupied their seats. What action have Railways taken ? Have they provided alternative accommodation to Telugu people? They left stranded. Even RPF people, instead of helping the harassed families, were enjoying the show. What action has been taken on RPF people ? How many of them have been suspended ? Can the railway authorities give us a reply on this ?
