I have a chance to visit New Delhi Railway Station on 10th July 2014 and wanted to reach platform No. 2 from Ajmeri gate side by using escalator being unable to walk through staircase.
1. The scanner checking for luggage: It was working. Two police men were sitting to monitor but seen gossiping. Surprised to note that the monitor through which scanning was being monitored was lying switched off. Tried to take snap but the policemen preferred to hide from the camera.
2. Escalators were not working. Barricades were kept just on the approach side. Tried to find out two policemen and a staff. Was told that this is not working since last more than six months. I recalled I had visited at least four times during last one year but were not working even at those time also. Barricading this time compelled me to think that these must have been now permanently closed. Snap of the escalators attached with this post. All senior old aged people were using the staircase.
3. It was very difficult to stand at platform No. 2 being smelling very heavy.
4. Tweeted number of times the condition of New Delhi Rly Station to PM office, Newspaper and electronic media and few important personalities like Anjana Om Kashyap and Dibang who recently covered Bullet Train in China. Surprisingly they never reacted to the tweets. Why the media is so biased could not understand. probably guess that electronic media must have been made BJP spokes media without realising that spooning and buttering is dangerous for the development of the country. Criticism always improves upon quality. more

Will our post or concern can bring in some change in discipline. Is price rise in railways fair going to bring smooth functioning ?
