UP wants better railway platformsSeptember 21st, 2012 - 8:56 pm ICT by IANS
Lucknow, Sep 21 (IANS) Uttar Pradesh is seeking better and improved railway platforms in the state.
The state government Friday said it would ask the railway ministry to improve the condition of platforms.
This was needed for the safe off loading of chemical fertlizers, an official said.
The decision was taken at a meeting of the agriculture department, where a review of the availability of chemical fertilizer in the state was done.
Officials feel that bad and shed-less platforms at major as well as important but medium size railway stations, poor link roads to platforms and absence of lighting at off-loading sites create major problems.
