Railway department is much perturbed over menace of rats at Charbagh railway station of Lucknow. Rats are causing losses worth crores of rupees. That is why the railways has given Rs. 4.76 lakh contract to a private company to kill rats. The company will start work soon.
It may be mentioned that rats are also causing troubles in running trains. They have bitten several passengers over the months. These rats sneak into train bogies when train stops at railway stations. It would be better if the railways give similar contract at the railway stations also to save passengers from trouble.
