Centre to introduce direct train from Kakinada to Varanasi


In order to facilitate pilgrims going in large numbers from Kakinada to Varanasi, Kakinada MP Vanga Geetha urged the Centre to introduce a direct train from Kakinada to Varanasi. She met Union minister for Railways Ashwini Vaishnaw on Sunday. 

Vaishnaw said that a lot of pilgrims of Kakinada region will go to Varanasi very frequently either individually or in groups. But, since there no direct trains from Kakinada to Varanasi, they are facing a lot of struggles especially along with senior citizens. To reach Varanasi, most pilgrims are forced to change numerous trains.

The MP solicited the Union minister to take necessary steps to provide direct trains from Kakinada to Varanasi and other places of Andhra Pradesh. She requested enhanced coaches in general and sleeper categories from Kakinada. She also requested for the linking of trains from Kovvuru and Bhadrachalam. Later, the MP has submitted a representation to the Union minister.
