Title: Request to provide stoppages of the G. T. Express at Bellampalli and the Navajeevan Express at Kagaznagar respectively in Andhra Pradesh.

DR. S. VENUGOPAL (ADILABAD): Sir, in the Adilabad district of Andhra Pradesh, the people have given a notice for dharna and rasta roko for stoppage of trains for which they are insisting since last one and a half years. They are asking for stoppage of the G.T. Express at Bellampalli, the Navajeevan Express at Kagaznagar and the Janata Express at Tandur. In these three places many factories are located where about 20,000 to 25,000 people from Bihar, Uttar Pradesh and Delhi are working. But due to non-stoppage of trains at these three places, they are facing many difficulties. This issue pertains to the Ministry of Railways. From 15th December onwards, the people of the entire district are going to agitate.

So, I request the Government to intervene in the matter and give instructions to the concerned railway authorities for stoppage of the trains at above places.
