New Delhi: Railways is running special trains from Guwahati to help stranded passengers in Assam, where protests are underway against the Citizenship Amendment Act, officials said on Saturday.

Special passenger trains are being run in Guwahati to reach their destination in upper Assam.

One such train was operated on Friday to Dimapur. Another was run to Furkating, the main railway junction in Assam’s Golaghat district on Saturday and another to Dibrugarh.

A special passenger train from Guwahati to Dimapur will run at 2:30 pm from Guwahati tonight, they said.

The officials said the railways is using social media like Facebook and Twitter to inform passengers about the special trains and also to appeal to people to not vandalise station property.

Officers are also continuously monitoring the situation and senior officers are camping in control room to supervise.

“Railways is becoming soft target and thousand of passengers are inconvenienced and stranded. Railways is making efforts for informing about cancellation of trains. Safety of passengers is paramount and hence cancellation of trains. Wherever possible, local railway administration are running local trains for stranded passengers,” an official said.
