Bandra Terminus-Gorakhpur train


Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu on Sunday flagged off a weekly train for Gorakhpur from the Bandra terminus and inaugurate­d Wi-Fi services at nine suburban stations. “In our country situation is such that people from villages have to leave their families and go to cities in search of livelihood as these places (cities) offer more opportunit­ies. There was a long standing demand for a train to eastern UP and today we have fulfilled it,” said Prabhu after flagging off the Bandra Terminus– Gorakhpur Express. The inaugural train will reach Gorakhpur on Tuesday.
