For Chhath Puja Bihar bound trains packed to capacity

Jamshedpur, Oct 25: With the Chhath season in full swing, Tatanagar stations witnessed massive crowd yet again.

All Bihar-bound passenger trains either originating or passing through Tatanagar and long distance buses are witnessing a huge rush of passengers.

Though passengers were impressed with the crowd control on platforms, the experience of travelling in packed compartments took away all the joy. No reservation is available in Tata-Danapur Superfast Express, Tata-Chapra Link Express and Durg-Danapur South Bihar Express in the four days, as it has reached the “no room” status.

Reservation is also not available in Puri-New Delhi Purushottam Express and Jallianwalla Bagh Express that passes through Gaya and other destinations in Bihar.

Railway officials at the commercial department said they had sent a requisition to the headquarters of South Eastern Railway in Calcutta for additional sleeper coaches in all trains to buffer the Chhath crowd.

Tatanagar station manager Awtar Singh said that they are taking extra care this time to provide relief to the commuters travelling in general coaches as they are the ones who have to bear the brunt of the menace created by some anti-social elements.

Chhath, one of the biggest festivities in Bihar and Jharkhand, will be celebrated on October 29 and 30 this year.
