RAIPUR,

PASSENGERS travelling in train (15159) Chhapra-Durg Sarnath Express were puzzled due to pathetic condition of water supply in running train. Unhygienic condition of coaches made the journey difficult. The train arrived with delay of nine hours on Thursday. While talking to the scribe, passengers shared their experience. Devraj travelling from Allahabad in general coach informed that on board cleaning staffs never turned up to the coach for cleaning and entire coach was dirty. There was no water available in toilets.


Akshat Rai and Jitesh Rai residents of Bhilai were travelling from Waranasi to Bhilai in S2-68 informed that there was not water in the wash basin and toilets the children travelling in the train were facing problems during long journey and more over the train was running late for nine hours on the day.


Shailesh travelling from Waranasi in S1 coach informed that at Allahabad and Katni station passengers holding general tickets entered their coach and occupied the reserved berths which was not justified. He further added that no railway vendors visited the coach with packed drinking water for the passengers, which was required during journey in summer season.
