Sukhendu Sekhar Roy speaks on speed limits of trains passing through elephant corridors in north Bengal

FULL TRANSCRIPT

I congratulate the Hon. Railway Minister for the introduction of Siliguri-New Cooch Behar demo in north Bengal.

I would like to know, through you, from the Hon. Minister whether the Railway Ministry has taken sufficient safeguards in implementing the Supreme Court’s directives for the maintenance of minimum speed limit prescribed for the natural corridors of elephants, which are being killed by speedy trains in the forest areas through which this train is supposed to ply.
