Modi flags off superfast train connecting Varanasi and Delhi

Varanasi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday flagged off a train connecting Varanasi -- his parliamentary constituency in Uttar Pradesh -- and Delhi.

Accompanied by senior ministers of his cabinet, Modi flagged off the superfast express train, Mahamana Express, which would ply between Varanasi-Lucknow-New Delhi.

All the coaches of the model train have been manufactured in a Bhopal coach factory, officials told IANS. Modi congratulated the ministry of railways for the new train, and said he hoped that it would make travel safe and easy for the passengers.

He also said this train would soon be replicated elsewhere in the country. IANS
