NAGPUR: Highways and Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari has promised to meet the demands of the North Indians in the city to extend the Amravati-Jabalpur express to Allahabad.

Earlier, Gadkari had promised to extend train number 12159/12160 Amravati-Jabalpur to Rewa, in response to a poll campaign in Prabagh 12-D for BJP candidate Vikram Gwalbanshi.

However, Rail Yatri Sangh (RYS) secretary Brijbhushan Shukla said, “Extension of the train until Rewa will not serve the purpose, as there is already a direct train from Nagpur to Rewa on Wednesdays. It would be better if the train were extended to Allahabad. “The distance between Nagpur and Allahabad is 913 km. Nagpur-Jabalpur distance is 575 km and if it is extended to Allahabad, the train will have to cover an additional 239 km.

In a memorandum to Gadkari, RYS requested that many of the patients from Madhya Pradesh and Allahabad travel to Nagpur for treatment. “If extended, many people travelling from the region to Allahabad will benefit,” Shukla said.

Although there are trains to Allahabad passing through Nagpur, they have a lower quota for the city. At least 8-10 private buses run daily from the city to Allahabad. These operators are exploiting passengers by charging them exorbitantly. Gadkari has promised to do what is needed, Shukla said.

Meanwhile, with the general budget likely to be presented on 1 February, Basant Shukla of Bharatiya Yatri Kendra (BYK) reiterated its call for either the start of a new train to Ratlam or the extension of the Nagpur-Indore train to Udaipur-Ratlam.

“This will benefit a large population of Rajasthans living in Nagpur, who often travel to their native places,” Shukla said.
