Stop sending ‘Shramik Special’ trains till May 26: West Bengal to Indian Railways in view of Cyclone Amphan

The Mamata Banerjee-led Trinamool Congress (TMC) state government in West Bengal has on Saturday written to the Indian Railways, urging the latter to make provisions to stop sending ‘Shramik Special’ trains to the state till May 26 in view of the recent destruction left behind by Cyclone ‘Amphan’.

In the letter that West Bengal Chief Secretary Rajiva Sinha addressed to the Railway Board chairman VK Yadav, the former said that the state has been severely impacted by Super Cyclone Amphan on May 20-21 which caused extensive damage to the infrastructure.

“As several district administrations are involved with relief and rehabilitation works, it will not be possible to receive special trains for the next few days. It’s requested that no train should be sent to the state till May 26,” the letter dated May 22 said.
