Mimi Chakraborty speaks on the demand for flyovers at railway level crossings in her constituency


Thank you so much Speaker Sir for  giving me an opportunity to speak. This is my first speech so I would like to seek all of your blessings. 

It has been a long demand of the people of my constituency Jadavpur for the construction of a flyover at Champahati railway station which is in Baruipur East. But in the past years no initiative has been taken on the project, for which over lakhs of people are still facing traffic congestion because of existing railway level crossing. It is more painful when a patient suffers and gets delayed in treatment and for students who reach their school late. 

There is also a similar problem in Sonarpur and in Bidyadharpur; both are under Sealdah division of Eastern Railway. I am sorry to inform the August House that there is no railway level crossing in Bidyadharpur as well, which is a prime demand to stop any accidents therein. I therefore urge upon the government to take immediate steps and start the projects urgently without any further delay. 

Thank you so much, Sir.
