The recent move by Railways to chip-in to transport essential goods across the country is highly appreciated. The move comes at a critical time when the entire nation is witnessing a lockdown owing to Coronavirus outbreak hampering normal life and its activities.
The Railways otherwise has been at the forefront in the nation-building exercise even in past instances such as natural calamities and disasters.
As also the recent move to convert its Rail coaches into a life-saving COVID-ready hospital wards with ventilators shows the preparedness and quick thinking by the Railway administration.
The Railways thus has set up an example to lead from the front during such a crisis and one remains indebted for such a humanitarian act to save precious lives of the people and fight against Corona pandemic.
Further the Railways should formulate a strategy to create specific trains by earmarking separate coaches also, that caters to the nation’s healthcare needs as and when the exigency arises.
