Railway Minister Piyush Goyal on Tuesday flagged off nine trains connecting small towns to major cities and said one of those, the Vadnagar-Mehsana train, was the railways’ gift to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who sold tea at the Vadnagar station during his younger days.
Goyal said the nine “Sewa Service” trains were launched without any additional investment by the railways and it was an example of how to use existing resources to the maximum.
“Without spending anything, without investing, we have started these nine trains from the available resources…. Among these trains, there is one that goes from Vadnagar to Mehsana. A tea seller at the Vadnagar station has become the prime minister of the country and by connecting Vadnagar with Mehsana, the railways has given a gift to the prime minister today,” he said.
Of the nine “Sewa Service” trains, those between Delhi and Shamli, Bhubaneswar and Nayagarh town, Murkongselek and Dibrugarh and Coimbatore and Palani will run daily. Read More
