DOOMDOOMA, March 25 - Makum-Saikhowa (Sadiya) Railpath Suraksha Samity (MSRSS) has demanded resumption of the DEMU train service to Dangari soon. In a press statement, MSRSS secretary Dhiren Deka said that Indian Railways introduced Diesel Electrical Multiple Unit (DEMU) train service between Dibrugarh and Dangari on October 8 last year. But after a month, the service was stopped on the ground of non-availability of racks. Since then various organisations including MSRSS have been demanding resumption of DEMU train service to Dangari.
The representatives of MSRSS met the Minister of State for Railways, Rajen Gohain through Dibrugarh MP Rameswar Teli and informed him about their deamnd. The minister instructed the Tinsukia Divisional Railway office to resume the train service to Dangari soon. But, the DRM office has turned a deaf ear to it.
MSRSS secretary Dhiren Deka on Wednesday contacted the headquarter of NF Railway, Maligaon and came to know that necessary racks for the DEMU train is now available. But, the service is yet to resume due to the lack of drivers.
MSRSS has demanded the Railway authority to solve the problem of driver and resume the DEMU train service to Dangari at the earliest.
