Chennai 600 003.
Sub: Heartless Railway Employee – Punishable Action Requested.
Marina an employee at the Saidapet Railway Station behaves recklessly with a Differently Abled ticket buyer. The visually impaired Mr. Dharmaraj was asked to go back and come in the queue every time he reached the window to buy his ticket. This was done in spite of Mr. Dharmaraj strictly following the queue pattern. When, another visually impaired person and our association vice president Mr. Elumalai questioned it she answered callously saying that she will not issue any ticket come what may. All along she was issuing season rickets.
Another employee Prabhu joined hands with Marina to say that the ticket will not be issued to Mr. Dharmaraj until he goes back to the tail end of the queue. This went on 11/07/2012 from 3pm to 4 52 pm and finally Mr. Dharmaraj got his ticket.
All this took place in broad daylight with many men and women standing there. No body bothered to intervene, which shows the utter indifference pervading among humanity. A visually impaired person takes the complaint to the Station Master. Another Railway employee seated in the office admits to know of the rude behavior of Marina, but the Station Master does not express anything and seems to have taken no action against the rude Marina
The Differently Abled cannot be taken for granted and their self respect cannot be insulted in such a mean way. We request you to take immediate action has to be taken against Marina and Prabu.
If strict punishable action is not taken against them, a protest by disabled citizens will be organized in front of Southern Railway head office.
Thank you Sir.
