PM likely to flag off new train from Varanasi on Jan 22


Prime Minister Narendra Modi is likely to flag off a new Varanasi-New Delhi train with improved amenities from his Parliamentary constituency on January 22.

“It has been decided to run the new train with improved amenities for Varanasi through Lucknow from here. The first train will be flagged off from Varanasi,” said a senior Railway Ministry official, adding “we are expecting Prime Minister to launch the train.”

He said a decision on the fare structure is yet to be taken, according to agencies.

Enhancing passenger amenities and fire safety measures, railways recently unveiled refurbished coaches with aesthetically appealing and improved interiors.

The train will take about 13 hours and 50 minutes to cover the journey between Varanasi and the national capital.
