CHAIRMAN RAILWAY BOARD SHRI V K YADAV VISITS PRAYAGRAJ AHEAD OF KUMBH: INSPECTS ALLAHABAD JUNCTION AND PRAYAG GHAT STATIONS

Shri Vinod Kumar Yadav, Chairman Railway Board (CRB) was o­n his first visit to Prayagraj after taking over as CRB. He arrived in Prayagraj early in the morning by Magadh express and began inspection of Allahabad Junction station of North Central Railway at 9:30 hours. In his inspection he saw the circulating area, passenger amenities and the new works that have been done at the station, especially those relating to the Kumbh Mela 2019, which is scheduled to start from the 14th of January. He spent time at the newly widened foot overbridge (FOB), newly constructed skywalk connecting two main FOBs of the station, Newly constructed FOB at Delhi End of the station, Passenger Enclosures at the City side of the station and the newly constructed platform number 6.He appreciated the new infrastructural enhancement works done both for their high quality and for the speed with which they had been executed and commissioned. Inside the Passenger Enclosures, he inspected the various facilities like ticketing counters, ATVMs, toilets, water booths etc. that had been provided for the pilgrims coming to the Kumbh Mela who are expected to use these enclosures in large numbers. He also released the special “Kumbh Rail Seva” Jacket that would be worn by the railway staff and volunteers who would be manning the railway stations of the Prayagraj and would be easily identifiable by passengers needing assistance by virtue of wearing the jacket. CRB and GM/NCR Shri Rajiv Chaudhry, along with DRM/Allahabad and other senior officers personally wore the jacket as a mark of respect for those staff and officers who would be putting in their best to serve the Kumbh Mela Pilgrims using the railway system. At the enclosures, CRB also met the volunteers of the Scouts and Guides organization and motivated them to put in their best in the Mela effort. Next CRB inspected the ‘Tower Control Room’ at Allahabad Junction station which has been set up for monitoring, controlling and coordinating the Kumbh related train operations at different stations in Prayagraj when the actual Kumbh Mela is in progress.

After Allahabad Junction station, CRB proceeded to the newly constructed Prayag Ghat station of the Northern Railway. The Prayag Ghat Station has been developed as a new Coaching Terminal in Prayagraj District with 5 new Platforms; 2 Washing Lines and new Station Building with Basement plus 2 stories. He did a detailed inspection of the station including its circulating area, platforms and various passenger amenities.

After the inspection of Allahabad Junction and Prayag Ghat Stations, CRB proceeded to the Headquarters of North Central Railway in Subedarganj where he addressed a joint meeting of the officers of NCR, NR and NER. GM/NCR, Shri Rajiv Chaudhry, GM/NER Shri Rajiv Agarwal along with DRMs of Allahabad and Lucknow (NR) and Principal Head of the Departments of these three Railways were present in the meeting. Speaking in the meeting, CRB said that the entire Indian Railway is o­ne large team and all the officers and staff of the team, regardless of their being from different zonal railways must function as parts of an integrated whole. “The highest levels of commitment and teamwork are needed from all the officers and staff of the Railways who are involved in the management of Kumbh Mela.The kind of works that have been done, and the speed and quality with which they have been executed, amply illustrate the ability and commitment of the Railway Personnel. The entire world recognizes and acknowledges that the operations of Indian Railways are the best in the world” he added. After the meeting with the officers, CRB interacted with the members of the Press and Media before leaving for Varanasi, for a window trailing inspection of the Allahabad-Varanasi Section.
