Sometimes it’s BJP & sometimes it’s BJD but we all will agree that calling a strike[bandh] for any demand by political parties simply put the normal citizens into more trouble & last strike by BJD over hike in fuel price was just an example how citizens were thrashed all across the state by the so called party workers. But not anymore, at least during train journey!
A high level Security Committee for Railways has decided that in all cases of ‘Rail Roko’ during strike in the State, criminal prosecution will be initiated forthwith. It was decided to appraise the courts about financial loss occurring due to these agitations so that the agitators can be made financially liable also under the Railways Act.
It was observed that incidents of Rail Roko during strike in Odisha have caused financial loss to the government and inconvenience to passengers. Not only that Dr Sharma emphasized that both GRP and RPF should ensure a crime free and people friendly environment in the railway stations and running trains.
As this issue has been solved, the concern authority & govt. should also bring new laws to act against the culprits who misbehave & cause damage to public property during the strike.
