Jai Army-made FoB!

Friday, December 08, 2017

In the past, we heard Jai Jawan and Jai Kisan slogans going a long way in bringing unity and diversity in this country. Now  civilian failure came to the fore as SOS to the army has now been seen as admission in making of the Foot Over Bridge (FoB) at Mumbai's Elphinstone Road station. In a shock admission of its own failure, the Indian Railways and the Government of Maharashtra have roped in the army to construct a Foot over Bridge in the hope of doing the work in a warlike fashion and to the satisfaction of each and every one using the FoB. The Army has the primary duty of fighting war but is known to assist civilians in emergency situations as well. The Modi Government in the Centre and the Maharashtra State Government do things in an unique way and this time, the tough task is given to army. It is emergency hence the army was called. This Government wants to prove it is doing something out of the day. Possible this FoB will be made of metal and can be used for ten years without any mishap considering the heavy flow of commuters passing through this arrangement. It is indeed unique. Jai FOB!
