During the rail journey, it often happens that passengers take food with them so that they can consume that food when they are hungry. But sometimes passengers have to throw away their leftover food.
But now passengers will not have to throw away their leftover food because needy people will consume that food. A refrigerator of about 6 feet height will be kept at Patna Junction, in which passengers will be able to keep their remaining food and that food can be consumed by needy people.
As per the local news, this facility is at ‘Hubli’ railway station in Karnataka. Excited by its success the railway officer is planning to provide this facility at other railway stations also. Non vegetarian and perishable food will not be kept in this refrigerator . This facility will be provided first at those railway stations of Patna which have ‘A’ and ‘A1’ grade such as Patna Junction which holds ‘A1’ grade.
In this context Rashmi Priya a resident of Kurji said that, ‘Government keeps on making some kind of schemes but fails to implement them properly and I think like the other schemes the government will take a lot of time to implement this plan as well.
Nisha Kumari from Kurji said that, ‘I don’t travel much by rail but during one of the journey from Patna to Delhi I threw away the leftover food but if this scheme is successful, then passengers will be able to help the needy by keeping the remaining food in the refrigerator for the use of poor’.
