Anand Tiwari, Patna. With the commencement of summer vacations, waiting has reached from 342 to 150 in most of the passenger trains passing through Patna Junction in the month of May to June. There is no room condition in some trains. Trains going to and from Mumbai, Delhi and Bangalore are in a bad condition. There is no room in 12336 LTT Bhagalpur Express going from Mumbai’s Lokmanya Tilak to Bhagalpur via Patna. Similarly, 12519 LTT Kamakhya Express, which arrives at Pataliputra station, also has no room till May 28.
Double waiting in AC too, more crowd of unconfirmed people
Similarly, in AC class too waiting has reached beyond 98. While the maximum weighting remains between 40 to 50. But the number of waiting has reached double in AC class also. The interesting thing is that even after running the special train, the passengers are not getting any relief. After Holi, there is huge crowd these days in the trains coming from Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore in the month of May. Passengers with waiting tickets are also traveling in sleeper and AC three coaches.
If you are roaming around for quota, then TTE has been given the target of making EFT
The TTE included in the checking staff has been given the target of making EFT. That is, if the passenger is without ticket, then he can travel by making EFT. In return, the passenger will have to pay the fare and a fine of Rs 200. On the other hand, if experts are to be believed, the tussle over tickets in the trains has become such that the passengers are making rounds of the officials to get the quota. The maximum crowd is happening in the commercial manager’s office. By getting the quota written on the pad of the public representatives, the passengers are making rounds of the officials. Still the ticket is not getting confirmed.
Difficulty in going from seat to toilet
Passengers with waiting tickets have to travel because of the difficulties of those with confirmed tickets. The heat is tremendous, the sleeper coach is getting so crowded that the passengers have to struggle hard to walk from their seats to the toilets. On Saturday, Rajesh Kumar who came to Danapur by 12296 Sanghamitra and Kamlesh Rai who came by 12141 LTT Patliputra Express told that he had a confirmed berth. But five people were already sitting on his seat. No one was ready to get down and TTE was also nowhere to be seen. Forced to come with the same crowd till Danapur station.
