Prabhu launches three trains for Bihar, Bengal

Union Railways Minister Suresh Prabhu on Tuesday flagged off three pairs of weekly express trains - two for West Bengal and one for Bihar - from Anand Vihar station here.

While two of the three trains are meant for Malda and Santragachi in West Bengal, the other one will ply to Saharsa in Bihar once a week.

“People from several states come to Delhi to work leaving their families behind. They yearn to go back once in a while and these new trains are for them so that they can go back and meet their families,” Prabhu said at the flag-off ceremony.

While all the trains are weekly, Prabhu said that their frequency may be increased if there is a demand for more services in these routes.
