Howrah (WB): In an unusual step, the
Railways on Saturday asked an old sweeper and a gateman to
inaugurate express trains at the Howrah station.
Bala Devi, a sweeper at the Santraganchi railway
station, and Nimai Chandra Bera, a gateman at the Goraghanta
station, inaugurated two weekly superfast express trains -
Howrah to Prasanthi Nilayam and Howrah to Shirdi.
"The duo will retire on the 28th of this month. So we
decided to pay them a small tribute by requesting them to
launch the trains. Though they are workers at the lower-level,
yet they are very important to the organisation," CPRO
Soumitro Majumdar said.
