Badkhal Flyover

Badkhal flyover connects the various HUDA Sectors, Village Ankhir, Mewla Maharajpur and some other villages to National Highway - 2 i.e. Mathura Road on Badkhal Red Light. It is two lane over bridge but currently too much traffic commutes via this bridge leading to long traffic jams on both sides of flyover.

During the peak hours the waiting time is approximately 3-5 minutes. Two more lanes are required on very urgent basis to solve the problem of traffic.

Ganga & Yamuna

The Ganges in Varanasi

Ganga & Jamuna are famous rivers of India. As per hindu methodology they are treated as Mothers. Bbut currently all the rivers are too much polluted and on verge of disappearance.

Ganga

Ganga is so much polluted due to Inorganic and toxic effluents discharged by industries, cremation of human bodies on banks of rivers and practice of throwing dead bodies, flowers and other articles into river makes it dirty.

The cleanliness drive / plans for river by government has failed. For Ganga river the Ganga Action Plan had been started in 1986 but according to some sources it 39 percent of primary target is reached. Ganga passes through approximately 29 cities and 70 towns and every city and town throw its waste in river while it is industry waste, garbage, sewerage, or any other thing.

Yamuna / Jamuna

Yamuna is currently on verge of disappearance because of extensive flow of industrial waste, sewage, dumping of other waste of cities. The most dangerous threating area for Yamuna starts from Delhi. In previous decades sewage of city is used for agricultural land but as all agriculture land has been occupied for residential purpose so the sewage flows into Yamuna.

As the river drifted into Faridabad its burden of sewage and industrial waste kept on increasing and the spectacular failure of the Yamuna Action Plan began to unfold. Although court had directed the government for cleanness of Yamuna and Yamuna Action Plan had been launched but it is not showing any result and no one is monitoring it. Crores of rupees has been spent in the name of Yamuna cleaning but results are zero.

Steps Required to save Our motherly Rivers

- To make Ganga, Jamuna and other rivers POLLUTION FREE a central empowered committee must be formed on urgent basis which consisting of representatives from Government/Judiciary /NGOs/Local Peoples/Environmentalist/Scientists etc.

- Deforestation in Himalayas

- Eco Friendly tourism

- Time bound Plantation programme near the rivers

- Whenever any dam is created its impact must be analyzed and corrective action should be implemented before the dams start working

- Enforcement of various laws which stops flow of industrial effluents and sewage from cities and towns into rivers

- Continuous Progress Report must be provided to public / Judiciary about cleanness, plantation and action taken against law violators

- Mass awareness campaign against Pollution

- Media must highlight pollution saving tips

- Creation of website for saving rivers

- Political Parties must make pollution a part of their political/election agenda

Earthquake in Delhi

Global earthquake epicenters, 1963 1998

Image via Wikipedia

The National Capital Delhi has large number of high rise buildings and due to loopholes/corruption in system many of them are not safe in case of natural disaster like earthquake. Delhi comes in Zone-IV on parameter of Earthquake measurement. no safeguards are installed, nor the life of these buildings are tested. What precautions are being taken is not known. Regular inspection must be their to save the loss of life and other assets. The safety equipment / life saving equipment required in case of earthquake must be available and ready 24 x 7. Generally in India equipment required in case of earthquakes are not at par with International Standards. So many countries are ahead of us so government must arrange world class equipment to remove debris and save lives.

It should be mandatory for all high rise buildings (government/private/others) for having safeguard and regular approvals & inspection by appropriate authorities for occupation.

The building who have completed their life must be demolished.

A team of volunteers must be created so that in case of earthquakes relief work can be started on immediate basis.

Indian Railway

Indian Railways

In my teenage I listened that Postal Department and Railway Departments are two departments for Government of India which can turn India's luck if these both departments runs into profit it will be huge success and can feed whole Indian economy. Lalu Prasad Yadav turned the Indian Railway in really big profits and he wins the race against all Private Corporate Houses and MNC's in his country. The profits of Indian Railway are moer than the Reliance Industries, the face of Indian Private Sector Companies. He really changed the face of Indian Railway, the first railway minister who reduced the railway fare during his tenure.

Today In his last budget he have made announcement for BULLET TRAIN which will be a great facelift for our country on International scenario.

He (Lalu Prasad Yadav) is really great!

Lalu may unveil pro-people Railway Budget today

Fuel price cuts to help Lalu's budget

Having managed to keep passengers fares in check for the last five years, Railway Minister Lalu Prasad is expected to announce more sops for train travellers when he presents the interim railway budget in Parliament on Friday.

Prasad, who desisted from carrying out any upward hike in the passenger fares despite increase in global prices of crude oil in the past five years of UPA rule, may this time announce some pro-people schemes ahead of the Lok Sabha polls.

Though it is a vote-on-account exercise, sources in the ministry said Lalu is keen to share the benefits of the reduction in oil prices with passengers.

Speculation is rife that Lalu might slash passenger fares in certain sector while seeking budgetary grant for April-July period.

Despite the global meltdown, railways have carried 74.55 million tonnes (MT) of freight during January this year which is 2.9 per cent more than the same period last year.

Railways have recorded an annual growth of 14 per cent in overall traffic earnings during the UPA regime.

Besides highlighting Ministry's achievements in the last five years, the interim budget is likely to have proposals for introduction of more trains including Garib Raths.

Garib Rath, which provides AC comfort to passengers belonging to poor sections of society, was introduced by Lalu in 2006-07. Currently, there are 20 Garib Raths and a few more are likely to be announced this time.

As the Railways have already hiked the freight rate of carrying foodgrains, pulses, flours and fertilisers by 8.3 per cent, it is likely that the freight rate will remain unchanged.

While the budget is likely to register a cash surplus before paying dividend at about Rs 25,000 crore, the operating ratio is also expected to be more than last year's 76 per cent.

The implementation of the Sixth Pay Commission for the railway employees is the reason for the higher operating ratio in the current year than the last financial year, said a senior official of the ministry.

Since there are many complaints against the quality of food being served in trains and platforms, railways are planning to revamp the whole catering system.

IRCTC has proposed to change the menu from traditional 'thali' system to combo meal system in trains and for this 150 kitchen cells would be set up across the country.

The emphasis will be on hygiene and quality of the food in the kitchen cell system, said a senior IRCTC official.

Keeping the Mumbai terror attacks in mind, the budget is likely to spell out a series of measures undertaken by railways to strengthen security including filling up of vacant RPF posts and installation of integrated security system at sensitive stations. Tenders will be issued shortly for installing state-of-the-art security equipment at Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata and Chennai in the first phase.

Commissioning of the pre-feasibility study for the bullet train in Pune-Mumbai-Ahmadabad route, awarding the contract for the ground work on the Dedicated Freight Corridor, installation of escalators at 100 stations are likely to find place in the budget.
Aiming at curbing accidents at level crossings, Prasad is likely to announce construction of railway overbridge and underbridge at certain identified places.

The extension of train operation from Rajwansher to Baramulla in Jammu and Kashmir is likely to find a special mention in the budget.
