Kolkata: South Eastern Railway (SER) train services have been severely disrupted in two divisions due to fierce protests by Kurmi community members. They have been blocking railway stations in West Bengal. The Kurmis want their community to be recognised as a Scheduled Tribe and for the inclusion of the Kurmali language in the Eighth Schedule of the Constitution.
