The agitation was led by Lok Raj Sangathan. The district administration had mobilized a large police force to intimidate the villagers. The police tried their utmost to forcibly remove the villagers but did not succeed in removing the villagers. For several hours the leaders of the agitation and the railway officials discussed the matter through video conferencing. In the end, the railway officials had to agree to the just demands of the villagers. They had to agree to halt the passenger trains not only in Ramgarh but also at other stations throughout the district. This was an important victory for the people of villages in the whole district.

Now the various people’s organisations, led by Lok Raj Sangathan, are preparing to launch agitation for getting the time tables corrected for the trains plying on this route.
