More facilities in trains needed

While railway authorities have increased train fares in the present budget, the maintenance and cleanliness of the coaches in being neglected by them.

One can see rats and cockroaches moving freely among the sleeper as well as AC coaches making the journey uncomfortable. Most trains also do not have sufficient water which results in unhygienic conditions.

Most coaches also do not have mobile charging points. Railway authorities should concentrate on these issues too.

Weddings to affect voting percentage

The percentage of polling in the by-election will suffer due to the ongoing ‘auspicious' season when most people are busy with weddings, house warming ceremonies and other functions.


Election Commission should have taken this factor into consideration before conducting the elections during this period.

I request the EC to take these things into consideration before deciding on the poll dates for the 17 seats that are slated for by-election.

No response from Airtel

Despite repeated reminders, Rs.500 collected by the Airtel agent to reactivate my mobile connection is not being reimbursed.

During the re-activation, the Airtel agent at Pioneer Corporate Services, Paradise Circle promised that the Rs.500 collected from me will be adjusted against the subsequent bills, which has not happened till date.

I request the Airtel officials to look into the matter.
