A few thousand people blocked the railway tracks at Lanka forcing a stop to all trains on this route from 7.50 a.m. to 12.30 p.m. Friday to pressurize the NF Railways to include Lanka as one of the stoppage points of the Jan Shatabdi. The blockade was orchestrated by a local organization in Lanka, a small station between Dimapur and Lumding. The super fast Jan Shatabdi was ensure that it took only four hours to travel between Dimapur and Guwahati. It was extended to Jorhat and later Mariani as the journey time lengthened from four hours to six hours. If Lanka is made another stoppage point for the Jan Shatabdi, it would further add to journey time. (Staff Reporter)
