Today (08:25)   Atal Bihari Vajpayee was the voice that led station masters to demand their rights

Vajpayee spent 12 years, from 1959 to 1971, as the president of the All India Station Masters' Association -- the last non-cadre member to be an office-bearer of the union.
NEW DELHI: It is a little-known fact that former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee was the president of a union for station masters, who fought for the right of the men on whose shoulders rested not just the smooth running of trains but also their safety and security.
Vajpayee spent 12 years, from 1959 to 1971, as the president of the All India Station
Masters' Association (AISMA) -- the last non-cadre member to be an office-bearer of the union.
Umashankar Singh was just shy of 30 years of age when he first saw Vajpayee, who was then emerging as the leader of the union.
He remembers the former prime minister as a "man who led from the front".
"He inspired generations at a time when we did not even know what our rights were. He encouraged us to demand our rights. His speeches were awe-inspiring. He was the president of AISMA from 1959 to 1971. He is no longer leading us, but we still follow his ideals," Singh told PTI over phone.
He recalled meeting the BJP stalwart when the latter had become the Jan Sangh chief in 1968 and said he met them as one of them and not as one of the most prominent leaders of the country.
At that time, Singh recalled, Vajpayee was already an elected member of Parliament.
In 1986, when Singh became the president of AISMA and was on a hunger strike in front of Parliament, Vajpayee intervened and convinced him to break his fast.
"He visited me and pushed me to break my fast. His kindness was touching," Singh remembered.
Vajpayee prominently featured in the annual diary of the AISMA last year as a "legendary" workers' leader.
The former prime minister's 12-year stint as the AISMA president also finds a mention in the "biography" section of his profile on the Lok Sabha website.

Today (10:48)   अटल बिहारी वाजपेयी ने खरीदा था दिल्ली मेट्रो का पहला टिकट

2002 में तत्कालीन प्रधानमंत्री अटल बिहारी वाजपेयी ने दिल्ली मेट्रो के पहले रेल लाइन का उद्धाटन किया था. साथ ही उन्होंने दिल्ली मेट्रो का पहला टिकट भी खरीदा था और कश्मीरी गेट से सीलमपुरी तक का सफर किया था.
नई दिल्ली, 17 अगस्त 2018, अपडेटेड 10:15 IST
दिल्ली मेट्रो में हर रोज सफर करने वाले 25 लाख से ज्यादा लोगों को शायद
पता नहीं होगा कि इस रेल नेटवर्क की शुरुआत रेड लाइन के 8.2 किलोमीटर लंबे खंड से हुई थी और उस वक्त इसका उद्घाटन तत्कालीन प्रधानमंत्री अटल बिहारी वाजपेयी ने किया था.
वाजपेयी ने 24 दिसंबर 2002 को दिल्ली मेट्रो रेल निगम (डीएमआरसी) के सबसे पहले कॉरिडोर का उद्घाटन किया था जिससे दिल्ली का एक बड़ा सपना पूरा हुआ था. इस उद्घाटन अवसर पर दिल्ली की तत्कालीन मुख्यमंत्री शीला दीक्षित, उप-प्रधानमंत्री लाल कृष्ण आडवाणी, केंद्रीय शहरी विकास मंत्री अनंत कुमार, डीएमआरसी के प्रमुख ई. श्रीधरन और मेट्रो के अध्यक्ष मदन लाल खुराना भी मौजूद थे.
अटल बिहारी वाजपेयी ही दिल्ली मेट्रो के पहले यात्री थे. उन्होंने मेट्रो स्टेशन से मेट्रो का टिकट खरीदा और फिर कश्मीरी गेट से सीलमपुरी तक का सफर किया. एक अधिकारी ने बताया, 'वाजपेयी और अन्य मेहमान कश्मीरी गेट में ट्रेन में चढ़े थे और सीलमपुरी में उतरे थे. बाद में एक कार्यक्रम आयोजित किया गया था जिसमें तत्कालीन प्रधानमंत्री ने आधिकारिक तौर पर ट्रेन सेवा को झंडी दिखाकर रवाना किया था.'
वाजपेयी के तहत ही शुरू हुई दिल्ली मेट्रो आम लोगों के यातायात में बड़े परिवर्तन का कारण बनी. इससे झुग्गी-झोपड़ियां, गरीबों की कॉलोनियां भी महंगे इलाकों से जुड़ गईं और एक बराबरी का भाव पैदा हुआ. पूरे देश में आधुनिकीकरण का सफल दौर शुरू हो गया.
अटल बिहारी वाजपेयी एकमात्र संसद सदस्य थे जो चार अलग-अलग राज्यों उत्तर प्रदेश, मध्य प्रदेश, गुजरात और दिल्ली से चुने गए थे. तीन बार प्रधानमंत्री, 10 बार लोकसभा सांसद और दो बार राज्यसभा सदस्य का रिकॉर्ड वाजपेयी के नाम है.
1995 में भारत के प्रधानमंत्री रहे पीवी नरसिम्हा राव और भाजपा नेता मदन लाल खुराना ने मिलकर दिल्ली मेट्रो कॉरपेशन (डीएमआरसी) का गठन किया था. जिसके बाद 1998 में दिल्ली मेट्रो की पहली लाइन का काम शुरू हुआ. 2002 में तत्कालीन प्रधानमंत्री अटल बिहारी वाजपेयी ने शाहदरा से तीस हजारी के बीच मेट्रो लाइन का उद्घाटन किया था.

It was because of him Delhi Metro happened. Atalji also traveled in Kolkata Metro in 1992 & then wrote a letter to the then Rly Minister for planning Metro in Delhi.
