Railway platform turns into pit

The Kokrajhar railway station platform turned into a pit on Tuesday morning hours after a heavy downpour lashed the entire BTAD district.

Waiting seats were caught mud and filth. Floors got drenched with dirty waters giving the passengers on wait a harrowing time either to keep standing or sitting.

They blamed it all on the staff for allowing the platform to be caught in mud and filth.

"The is unacceptable. Railway does not run this way. Nobody is there to share this condition," said a passenger who was waiting for a train.

Another passenger who refused to be named said," I do blame the staff in Kokrajhar. Why they can't keep talking to the authority on this condition."  
Other passengers urged the station authority to repair and renovate the platform.
