When government does not provide the good facilities people complain about it and when the government tries to improve the infrastructure people take advantage of it. something similar seems to have happened in the case of Goa – Mumbai-bound Tejas Express. According to the sources, on the first day itself, the passengers stole the headphones and damaged the screens. The toilets were also left in the pathetic conduction says the report.
According to the reports published in the India Times, India’s first superfast express train Tejas Express that was running on the Mumbai – Goa route had been vandalized by the passengers in its first trip. The report further states that we make the hue and cry if the development is not done by the government but it very unfortunate that when the development is done we do not value it.
We cursed the system for running the poorly maintained trains on the tracks but when the same system provided us with the superior quality trains we did not acknowledge the same with respect. According to the reports, Tejas Express – India’s first high speed and well-equipped train from Mumbai to Goa had its first trip on Monday. As it returned, there were some shocking things to witness; not from govt’s side but from the side of the public.
The train officials were shocked when the train arrived back from the journey they found the screens were damaged and most of the headphones were stolen by the passengers. The toilets were in un-flushed condition and littered all over. According to the sources, the train officials are now planning to appeal the passengers to avoid the damaging train.
When the train was launched, it was boasted by the authorities that the train comes fitted with the CCTV cameras but officials are unable to tell the reason why they did able to find who are the culprits who damaged the screens and stolen the headphones. If the CCTV cameras cannot take care of the own property of the railway then what is the purpose of the entire investment.
The media would like to appeal the people to not to spoil the train like Tejas which is the pride in India made by the Indian railway by spoiling the pride of India we are spoiling our own image in front of the world.
