Mangaluru, May 15, 2024: Southern Railway’s Palakkad Division has termed as baseless some reports in a section of the media and on social media about the closure of the division or the formation of a new one.

In a statement, Divisional Railway Manager Arun Kumar Chaturvedi said the reports were entirely speculative and devoid of any factual basis. “There have been no discussions, proposals, or plans whatsoever, regarding closure of Palakkad division or establishment of any new division. The assertions made in these reports are entirely unfounded and have caused unnecessary confusion and concern among the public,” he said.

He said the division was seriously concerned by the spread of misinformation, particularly in today’s age of social media, where baseless news can rapidly gain traction and influence public opinion. Moreover, the response from certain individuals of prominence, who have reacted to these reports without verifying the accuracy of the claims, only serves to exacerbate the situation.

Mr. Chaturvedi further said, “We urge all press outlets to exercise greater diligence and responsibility in verifying the authenticity of such news stories before publication.”
