PM Narendra Modi inaugurates the Mahamana Superfast Express

Varanasi: Arriving in his constituency for the fifth time, Prime Minister Narendra Modi flagged off the Mahamana Superfast Express from Dreka ground today.

The train is named after Mahamana Madan Mohan Malviya, the founder of the Banaras Hindu University (BHU). Touring to and fro Varanasi and Delhi via Lucknow covering a distance of 800km in not more than 14 hours, the train will function thrice a week.

The train is fully equipped with the modern facilities with dustbins and bio-toilets in every coach fitted with led screen.

The ‘twitter’ handle of Northern Railways was seen covering the arrival of the PM for inauguration of the train:

The PM will also be visiting Lucknow to address the sixth convocation of the Babasaheb Bhimrao Ambedkar University. Homage to Babasaheb Bhimrao Ambedkar at the Ambedkar Mahasabha will also be paid by him.

“The prime minister will arrive in Varanasi to attend Divyangjan Sashaktikaran Samaroh — a program for the distribution of aids and devices for the differently-abled people,” a press release said.

In Lucknow, he will also distribute e-rickshaws at a function to be organised by microfinance institution Bharatiya Micro Credit.

The last tour, on December 12 last, was marked by Modi witnessing the famous Ganga Arti on the banks of the holy river, accompanied by the Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. (IANS) (picture courtesy: newindianexpress.com)
