Major Issue in Jugsalai -
35 lives have been lost on the railway level crossing at Jugsalai, till the last count in around two decades, but life has been going on. Jugsalai, which has a population of roughly one lakh, but none is speaking on the most vital issue plaguing the locals. It is not that people have not raised the demand for an over-bridge but politicians have done nothing to check the menace.
The solution for this problem is an over-bridge to facilitate uninterrupted flow of traffic.
Governments have been formed and pulled down but there has been no let up in the apathy towards Jugsalai residents, who risk their lives everyday to remain connected with Eastern Jamshedpur jumping the crossing.
Jamshedpur is in the Howrah –Mumbai and Howrah –Delhi main line. Some 54 pairs of super fast and passenger train pass through this crossing everyday. Hence, the barriers’ remain down for the most part of the day.
Those abiding by the rules sometimes remain stranded for half an hour waiting at the crossing. Not just the politician even railway authorities have shown little interest although the issue remains their domain.
