Manish Gupta asks a Supplementary Question on attacks on railway tracks
Mr Chairman Sir, with your kind permission I would like to ask a supplementary question to the Hon. Minister. We all know that when we have a security system, the integrity of the system is efficacious only if the system is able to give advance information.
With regard to railway security, I notice that there are a lot of closed-circuit camera systems, railway stations are being monitored. But I think the involvement of the State Government and the Railways should be more integrated.
Many advanced countries have systems and devices by which they can detect any disturbances on railway tracks. If you have to depend on technology and if you have to build a modern society, we need to adopt these systems.
I would like to ask the Hon. Minister whether the Railways has any plans to install such systems in the Railways. Thank you.
