SHRI A. K. ANTONY: My dearest colleague, Mr. Narayanan was speaking about Kerala. Kerala people are not jealous about Tamil Nadu. We are not against Tamil Nadu. Whatever you get, we will also get. What we are demanding is that we must get our legitimate share. Kerala is ignored. Tamil Nadu also must cooperate with us.

SHRI P. G. NARAYANAN: We have no objection for that.

SHRI A. K. ANTONY: You must also support Kerala's case.

SHRI P. G. NARAYANAN: Yes, yes.

THE VICE-CHAIRMAN (PROF. P. J. KURIAN): You can also support Kerala, Mr. Narayanan.

SHRI SILVIUS CONDPAN (ASSAM): Thank you, Sir. I would like to draw the attention of the Ministry of Railways that we have certain grievances in the North-East for improvement of Railway system. Firstly, doubling of Railway track, at least up to Guwahati can be done. If it is not possible, then up to Tinsukia. At least up to Guwahati, doubling of track should be there. Then, Sir, I am very happy that many good conversion schemes have been taken up in the North-East in different areas. But, now, we are discussing the Appropriation Bill that means money will be released and it will be spent. My request to the Railway Ministry, through you, Sir, is that at least releasing the funds for these projects should not be departmentally dealt with in such a way that the money does not go to the project to advance the work on time. Sir, you know that the North-Eastern Region, at least in the plain areas, suffer from floods for six months. If the funds are not released on time then this money is not going to be spent and the money comes back to the department unspent and the progress does not take place to the utter disappointment of the people who want that the Railway projects should be taken up by the Railway Department for the development of Railway system in the North-Eastern Region and more particularly, I want to highlight the Railway system in Assam. If up to Assam the Railway system is improved -- those Members who know about the topography of North-Eastern Region will understand everything --- at least 70 per cent of the Railway system will be improved for the people of the entire North-Eastern Region. The topographical system is such that the railway line will not be easily reaching wherever the people are demanding. But so far as Assam is concerned, up to Guwahati, the hinterland of the North-Eastern Region, the railway line should be reached for all-purpose. I do not want to elaborate because this is the Appropriation Bill. I want to request, through you, Sir, the Railway Ministry to see that whatever projects they have very kindly taken up to improve the Railway system in the North-East and Assam in particular should be done as also the speedy progress of the Bogibeel road-cum-railway bridge which is very, very important not only for the people of Assam but for the whole of the country. It is a strategic point of internal security if and when it may arise. That will serve the purpose as Saraighat Bridge. It served 42 years ago when Chinese aggression took place. It was completed by the Railway Ministry. I have mentioned earlier that it moved the Armed Forces Special train to meet the situation in Bomdilla and Arunachal area. For those things we have an experience. Now, for this bridge also, it is rather more important. I would like to draw the attention of the Railway Ministry, through you, that they should take up the construction of Railway-cum-road bridge of River Brahmaputra at Bogibeel in Assam in the district of Dibrugarh. It appears to us, I say this as a man from Assam, that the Railway Ministry is not seriously taking up this project. It was started with utmost importance by the earlier Ministry and I hope the present Government will pursue it with higher speed so that the people of North-East will have this big project and it will improve the North-East from economic point of view, industrial development point of view and more particularly from Defence strategic point of view. Thank you. (Ends)

THE VICE-CHAIRMAN (PROF. P.J. KURIAN): Shri Matilal Sarkar. Please take only five minutes.

SHRI MATILAL SARKAR (TRIPURA): I will try. Sir, whenever I speak on Railways, I do not find the hon. Railway Minister in the House. ..(Interruptions)..

THE VICE-CHAIRMAN: There are two Ministers. ..(Interruptions)..

ןֻֻ ָָ : ֻ ״ֻ פ ֕ , ׻֋

Sir, first of all, I must appreciate and thank the hon. Minister for declaring Lumding-Kumarghat-Agartala railway as a national project and, I think, this project will be completed on scheduled time. The Prime Minister already went there and he told that it would reach Agartala by March 2007. (Contd. by 1w/KSK)

KSKk/12.40/1w

SHRI MATILAL SARKAR (CONTD): So, first of all, my submission is that it should be on schedule. We would like to have this by March, 2007. My second point is regarding old wagons. Yesterday also, during Question Hour, this point was raised. The hon. Minister of State told that old wagons cannot be replaced by new ones because the new ones are not being manufactured. It is very frustrating news for us. The old wagons will not be used and new wagons will not be manufactured. There is only metre gauge line. There is no broad gauge line. So, how shall we have the facility of railways? So, I would earnestly request the hon. Minister to make good the use of these wagons so that the wagons may be repaired and replaced by the good ones in order to ensure that passenger services at Tripura are not disturbed. Now, at present, it is very much disturbed and very often, it is withdrawn. So, I would like to be assured of this.

My third and most important point is that this year, we were expecting an assurance that some important inclusion will be made in the Budget. All the people of Tripura were expecting that this railway segment from Agartala to Sabrum will be included in this Budget. But, it is missing, and I again raise the demand to include this segment in the Budget. Sabrum is important because from Sabrum, we can reach Chittagong. It is very near and it will serve the purpose of whole of North-East. That is why, this segment of railway is very important, and I think, the hon. Minister will give a second thought to this.

My fourth point is that we require reservation in all the main trains plying from Howrah to Delhi, Sialdah to Delhi and Guwahati to Delhi. The State Government has already given specific proposal as to how many tickets have to be reserved in which train. I am demanding this because Tripura is the farthest corner and people, who come here, have to wait at Guwahati for 2-3 days for reservation. My request is that there should be some reservation quota for passengers boarding train from Tripura in the main trains passing from there.

Finally, I would like to know from the hon. Minister the pace at which the railway network is expanding in the North-East. At the present pace, it seems will take another hundred years to reach all the State capitals. So, I think the Government should give some special consideration to North-Eastern States because the North-East is not only a region, but it is also the focal point of neighbouring countries on the east. And, railway network is badly needed in the North-Eastern region, for the people of the region and from international perspective also. So, I would like to know from the hon. Minister the time-bound schedule by which all the State capitals will be connected with the railway services. (Ends)

THE VICE-CHAIRMAN (PROF. P.J. KURIAN): Thank you, Mr. Sarkar, especially for sticking to the time limit. That is very good. Shri Shunmugasundaram.

SHRI R. SHUNMUGASUNDARAM (TAMIL NADU): Thank you, Sir, for permitting me to speak on the Appropriation (Railways) No.3 Bill. In Appropriation Bill, the Railways want to appropriate some amount of funds. Earlier, on an occasion, when I was permitted to speak on Railways, I had mentioned about the arrears that were to be collected from several corporate houses as freight charges. (continued by 1x)

SHRI R. SHUNMUGASUNDARAM (CONTD.): Sir, through you, I would also like to point it out to the hon. Minister that in-motion weighing machines are not available as much as they are required. And, consequently, the Railways are forced to accept whatever weight the companies declare. Sir, later on, while carrying out random checks, it was found that there were wrong declarations and litigations to that effect for recovery of the actual amounts are pending. Sir, I believe, only after carrying out random checks, over thousand crore of rupees are pending as arrears. If that is collected, if proper in-motion weighing machines are stationed at all major railway stations, I think, several thousands of crores of rupees can be recovered from those companies who send goods through railways.

Sir, another issue to which I would like to draw the attention of the hon. Minister is the conduct of some of the retired railway officials. Sir, after retirement, some highly placed officials -- sometimes, even the Chairman or the Members of the Board -- join multinationals or corporate houses as consultants and advice those companies against the interests of the railways. Though they continue to receive pension and other perks from the railways, they advice against the railways. This should be taken care of by the Railway Ministry and the Ministry should put an end to it. Sir, at the time of retirement, the Railways should get a bond executed by the railway officials saying that they will not act against the interests of the railways and they will not take up jobs with the clients of the railways. This should be strictly implemented.

Sir, I am also pained to know about the recent incident of misbehaving by a member of the Indian delegation for the Commonwealth Games at Melbourne. The hon. Minister of Tourism is also here, and, I hope that she would take up this matter. Sir, the member of the Indian delegation misbehaved with an Australian girl. He should be penalised and all the expenses borne on his travel, up and down, by our country must be collected from him and he should not be allowed to continue in any of these forum. This should be taken note of seriously.

Sir, I have seen the advertisement, "Athithi Devo Bhava". That is doing very good and this should be continued.

Sir, coming to Tamil Nadu, I thank my esteemed colleague and my close friend, Shri Narayanan. I should not address him as my close friend; he may be displeased. Sir, he exhibited enormous interest in asking for doubling of the tracks between Chengalpattu to Tuticorin. Sir, I support this demand which is pending since long. Now, Tuticorin Port is also coming up though they tried to put spokes in it.

Now, the necessity for doubling of the tracks should be prioritised by the Railway Ministry. Sir, with regard to the MRTS in Chennai, two years back, when I had the occasion to speak on the Budget, I spoke in favour of a circular railway in Chennai city because the road traffic is bursting at seems in Chennai city. Sir, in the last five years, no flyover has been constructed there and the road traffic has become very heavy. Therefore, I asked for Velachary to be linked with Villivakkam. Sir, I also wrote a letter to the hon. Minister and the hon. Minister Shri Veluji wrote back to me in February that survey for Velachary to St.Thomas Mount is over and some progress is being made. (Contd. by sk-1y)

SHRI R. SHUNMUGASUNDARAM (CONTD.): I am very happy that Velachery and St. Thomas Mount are going to be linked up. But, what is happening with Thiruvanmiyur to Velachery? The Ministry has promised the completion of that till as early as April 2005. But, that is not completed. Now, Velachery to Villivakkam is a necessity. That should also be prioritised. Sir, now I will talk about the underground metro line. Now, we are having this facility in Delhi also. (Time-bell) I want it in Chennai also. There was an attempt to bring in monorail for obvious reasons. But, the hon. Minister said that that is not feasible. That should also be taken up. Sir, the hon. Minister of State, Mr. Velu, came out in Press that Guindy railway station platform will be extended so that the express trains from South of Chennai will be made to stop at Guindy railway station. That is also not coming up. I do not know what is the reason behind the delay in executing the project. Sir, I want the gauge conversion of Coimbatore to Madurai and Madurai to Bodinaickanaur because Madurai to Bodinaickanur route is heavily used by the University-goers. That is a very important route. And, Coimbatore to Madurai route is also a very important because of the Sethu Canal Project, which has been cleared. Though after a very long demand of about 450-60 years, a dream the project is coming up in Tamil Nadu. These lines will definitely cater to the success of the project. With these words, Sir, I thank you very much. (Ends)
