Mala Roy speaks on the incidents of suicide attempts in Kolkata Metro
Hon’ble Speaker Sir, as you all know that Kolkata Metro started its operation in 1984 and is India’s oldest Metro service. During this period of time we have experienced many suicides and suicide attempts in the Metro premises.
A larger portion of the Kolkata Metro runs through our constituencies Kolkata Dakshin, Kolkata Uttar and Jadavpur etc. So, I would like to request the minister to look into this matter very seriously and take up immediate steps to introduce platform-screen doors in all Kolkata Metro stations to enhance the safety and security of the people.
