“Every alternate day, there are technical issues causing disruption of the Kalyan-Kasara double line. Is there any accountability at the railway ministry for disciplinary action on concerns? For many years no improvement in railway services, not even speeding activities of expansion of lines on this urban-rural area of Kalyan-Kasara rail route even in 75th Independence Day,” Shyam Ubale General secretary Kalyan-Kasara-Karjat railway passenger association, said.
