Tens of Trains Canceled Across Andhra Pradesh
Due to the "Train Blockade" call given in all the three regions of Andhra Pradesh by "Samaikya Andhra" & "Jai Telangana" agitations the South Central Railway has canceled around 88 trains that pass through Andhra Pradesh. The SCR has announced that it may cancel more if the situation warrants.
"The cancellations have been kept at bare minimum so as not to inconvenience the passengers. However, if the situation turns volatile, SCR may cancel/reschedule more trains at short notice," SCR Chief Public Relations Officer Chandrima Roy said.
All 49 MMTS services between Secunderabad and Falaknuma, six local trains between Secunderabad and Umdanagar, 10 trains between Falaknuma and Umdanagar, two trains between Falaknuma and Bollarum are among the passenger trains that have been cancelled.
Long distance trains may get delayed enroute and/or may be regulated/rescheduled, Roy said adding SCR is making arrangements for food and water at stations so that passengers are not inconvenienced.
The 'Samaikyandhra JAC' called for 'rail roko' today opposing bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh in coastal Andhra and Rayalaseema regions, while the Telangana JAC also called for a rail and road blockade in the Telangana region today in support of their separate state demand.
