आरपीएफ आरक्षकों पर लगा मारपीट का आरोप


इटारसी. होशंगाबाद के एक हार्डवेअर व्यापारी के साथ सादी ड्रेस में मौजूद आरपीएफ के तीन आरक्षकों ने मारपीट कर दी। आरक्षकों ने व्यापारी को सिर्फ इसलिए पीटा क्योंकि उसने अपनी पिकअप गाड़ी निकालने के लिए रास्ते में खड़ी एक आरक्षक की बाइक को हटाने के लिए कहा था। पीडि़त व्यापारी ने इसकी शिकायत जीआरपी में कराई है।

यह है मामला
होशंगाबाद निवासी हार्डवेअर व्यापारी अमेंद्रप्रताप सिंह 52 वर्ष अपने एक परिचित की पिकअप से इटारसी आए थे। उनका परिचित इटारसी स्थित रेलवे के पार्सल कार्यालय में सामान बुक करने आया था। शुक्रवार रात साढ़े दस बजे जब वह माल बुक करने के बाद पिकअप वाहन से परिसर से बाहर निकल रहे थे उसी दौरान उनके रास्ते में एक आरपीएफ आरक्षक की बाइक आ गई। व्यापारी ने उक्त आरक्षक को बाइक हटाने को कहा जिस पर आरक्षक ने व्यापारी से अभद्रता कर दी। इसी बीच वहां दो अन्य आरक्षक भी आ गए और उन्होंने व्यापारी को गाड़ी से उतारकर उसकी जमकर पिटाई लगा दी।

डर से नहीं गया थाने
अपने साथ बेवजह हुई मारपीट से व्यापारी इतना घबरा गया था कि उसकी रात में ही जीआरपी थाने जाने की हिम्मत नहीं हुई। अपने कुछ परिचितों को साथ लेकर वह व्यापारी शनिवार सुबह 11 बजे जीआरपी थाने पहुंचा। व्यापारी ने आरपीएफ आरक्षकों पर कार्रवाई का आवेदन दिया। जीआरपी ने पीडि़त व्यक्ति का मेडिकल दोपहर करीब 12 बजे कराया। समाचार लिखे जाने तक जीआरपी ने इस मामले में कोई भी एफआईआर दर्ज नहीं की थी।

किसने क्या कहा
हमने उनको बीच में खड़ी बाइक को हटाने के लिए कहा था। इतनी सी बात वे तीनों भड़क गए और हमें गाड़ी से उतारकर लात-घूंसों से जमकर पीटा। जीआरपी में कार्रवाई के लिए आवेदन दिया है। इस मामले में हम वरिष्ठ अधिकारियों को भी शिकायत करेंगे।
अमेंद्र प्रताप सिंह, पीडि़त व्यापारी
जिस व्यापारी के साथ मारपीट की घटना हुई है। उसने थाने में आवेदन दिया है। उसका मेडिकल कराया गया है। फिलहाल मामले को जांच में लिया गया है। जांच के बाद ही आगे की कार्रवाई की जाएगी।

VERY VERY BAD - सीएजी (CAG) के आडिट रिपोर्ट ने रेलवे की पोल खोल दी - रेलवे में परोशे जा रहे खाने इंसानी इस्तेमाल के मापडंडों से बहुत नीचे CAG Report Says that the Food Supplied in the Indian Railways is Worst


Image result for Food  Indian Railways is Worst
भारतीय रेलवे की कैटरिंग सर्विस पर सीएजी की ऑडिट रिपोर्ट शुक्रवार को संसद में रखी जानी है। रिपोर्ट में बताया गया है कि रेलवे स्टेशनों पर जो खाने-पीने की चीजें परोसी जा रही हैं, वो इंसानी इस्तेमाल के लायक ही नहीं हैं। रिपोर्ट के मुताबिक, ट्रेनों और स्टेशनों पर परोसी जा रही चीजें प्रदूषित हैं। डिब्बाबंद और बोतलबंद चीजों को उनके सुरक्षित इस्तेमाल के लिए तयशुदा टाइम पीरियड के गुजर जाने के बावजूद बेचा जा रहा है। इसके अलावा, अनाधिकृत ब्रैंड की पानी की बोतलें बेची जा रही हैं। 

सूरेश प्रभु भले रेलवे में नये मुकाम हासिल करने के दावे कर रहे हों लेकिन रेलवे का सूरत-ए-हाल कुछ और है। सीएजी (CAG) के आडिट रिपोर्ट ने  रेलवे की पोल खोल दी है। सीएजी ने कहा कि रेलवे में परोशे जा रहे खाने इंसानी इस्तेमाल के मापडंडों से बहुत नीचे हैं।
CAG रिपोर्ट के मुताबिक, ट्रेनों और स्टेशनों पर परोसी जा रही चीजें प्रदूषित हैं। डिब्बाबंद और बोतलबंद चीजों को  एक्सपायर होने के बावजूद भी बेचा जा रहा है।
इसके अलावा, अनाधिकृत ब्रैंड की पानी की बोतलें बेची जा रही हैं। जांच में पाया गया कि रेल परिसरों में साफ सफाई पर कोई ध्यान नहीं दिया जाता है। इसके अलावा, ट्रेन में बिक रहीं चीजों का बिल न दिए जाने और फूड क्वॉलिटी में कई तरह की खामियों की भी शिकायतें हैं।
