Jamshedpur, Feb 1: Congress workers led by district Congress president Anand Bihari Dubey staged a demonstration near Jugsalai railway level crossing on Wednesday and demanded construction of a foot over bridge (FOB) for pedestrians.
Addressing the gathering, Dubey said the railway over-bridge (ROB) had provided a solution to the people of Jugsalai, Bagbera, Rajnagar and other adjoining areas. But at the same time, another problem had surfaced due to blocking off of the railway level crossing, he said.
“Pedestrians will have to walk through approximately one mile ROB to go to the other side of the railway crossing. Earlier this distance was just 20 metres. This is causing inconvenience to children, women, senior citizens and other pedestrians,” said Dubey.
Congress workers decided to meet the Railway Area Manager of Tatanagar on 2nd February and hand him a memorandum demanding construction of FOB by the Railways in the larger interest of local residents.
