Prime Minister Narendra Modi will flag off Mahamana Express, to be run between Vadodara and Varanasi, on September 22. Modi will flag off the train, which will run from Vadodara on its maiden journey, with a remote control in Varanasi, his Lok Sabha constituency. The Modi government had unveiled the first rake of Mahamana Express as part of the Railways’ Model Rake Project in 2016. The new weekly train will run from Varanasi every Friday and from Vadodara every Wednesday.

Modi may also flag off another train, a new Antyodaya Express, an upgraded all-general-class train meant for migrant labourers between Surat and Jaynagar, officials said.

Railways has made arrangements for the coming festive season, when demand for trains to Bihar, West Bengal and parts of Uttar Pradesh increases. To meet the rush, Railways has made a special plan to infuse 4,000 special train trips in a 40-day period, Minister of State for Railways Manoj Sinha said on Tuesday.

    Stop VIP culture. Why all inaugurations by Modi? Why not by some Dalit, why not by some rickshaw puller, why not by some rag picker child? When their day will come in India?

      I think we have a president which is from so called dalit background who also inaugurate many things. Mayawatj inaugurated the 1200cr park in UP during her time.I think communist who are in power in Kerala who call themselves champion of the poors should give chance to a laborer to inaugurates something so that it will create a new vibe.
