In this we have all our ponds, puddles, canals etc. where ghats have been built. A massive clean-up campaign has been launched, lime has been sprinkled, etc. Proper arrangements are also being made for lighting and there will also be arrangements for divers, and volunteers are also being supported in this, who will monitor it closely.

So any railroad train that leaves here, there will be a date on it. After that, in addition to the speed limit, RPF and GRP will also cooperate on this and people will also be constantly called to the Public Announcement System so that they do not cross the railway crossing and be alert and come carefully. In this way, our preparations continue in rural and urban areas.

Regardless of the traffic arrangements that exist and from a safety standpoint, we are making a lot of detours. As you look back, this road is closed every year, because there is a lot of rush here, so the meeting has been done in view of the traffic. Right now there has also been a meeting with DM Sahib and DRM Sahib, in which, taking railway safety into account, the RPF GRP Joint Police force will be present at all points of all crossings. Information has been taken on all the trains that pass through here. Because there is a 24 hour worship time. So from 10 to 11 our duty will be 24 hours.
