Daijiworld Media Network - Mangaluru (DV)

Mangaluru, May 28: Commuters are suffering as the trains travelling from Mumbai to Mangaluru have been delayed by at least 4 to 5 hours for the past four months.

Several people from the coastal region travel to Mumbai for their business and various other activities. There are more than 15 trains proceeding to various destinations that pass through Mangaluru Central and Mangaluru junction railway stations.

During monsoon, trains get delayed. But now prior to the monsoon itself trains are running late. Reportedly, Matsyagandha Express, Mangalore Express, Netravati Express, Rajdhani Express, and other trains are running late, according to commuters.

It is said that trains coming from Mumbai towards Mangaluru takes at least one hour to reach Mangaluru railway station from Surathkal or often get delayed forcing most of the passengers to take a bus to the city from Surathkal railway station. 

Speaking to, Dakshina Kannada Working Journalists Association president Srinivas Indaje said, "For the past few months, trains from Mumbai and other parts of the country have been arriving late to Mangaluru by at least four hours to six hours thus inconveniencing the passengers. As it is a single-line track, it also takes more time due to the crossings. It is our request that MP Nalin Kumar and the railway minister should set right this inconvenience faced by the general public."

An officer from the railways department, speaking on condition of anonymity said, "Trains coming from Thiruvananthapuram to Mangaluru get delayed because of the ongoing development works. Usually, during monsoon, timings of the train change. Recently, trains arrived late because of rain arising due to the cyclone."

    If you involve Nalin Kateel in this matter, what else do your expect. He is master of delays. 4 hours delay is casual for him when he could not even complete the flyover after 4 years of delay.

    Modi ji needs to be briefed so that he can send his drone to hover above the railway tracks enroute to Mangalore. Modiji will then take photographs and email to himself, with a cc to Nalin Kateel. Achhe Din!!

    In this country everything is late because there are unending lies which the public accepts graciously. This is what we taught from school days. There is no commitment, no punctuality, no accountability. Lies have more prominence & value everywhere.
