Sudip Bandyopadhyay seeks clarifications from the Railway Minister
Firstly, I want to make it clear to the Hon’ble Minister that the railway line Balurghat-Eklakhi, which is mentioned in his speech, I categorically invite him to go and ride the Balurghat-Eklakhi Express train; he will enjoy it. The train is running with full command and it is a running train.
Sir, I want to raise a crucial issue. There are more than 1.74 lakh railway bridges in the country. There are more than 100 bridges in the country, which are more than 100 years old. This is related with the safety and security of railways. What steps is the government going to take for these 100 year old bridges? Are they going to be repaired or not?
