One more ‘water’ train leaves for Maha from Raj
One more ‘water’ train with 50 wagons of 27 lakh litre capacity left for Miraj in Maharashtra on Friday to cater to the needs of the parched Marathwada region, which is battling its worst-ever drought.
The train, which started from Kota railway station of Rajasthan, will cover a distance of 1,370 km to reach Miraj, West Central Railway sources said.
The first such train was sent to Maharashtra from Kota on April 8. Earlier, two special trains have ferried water to the Marathwada region.
