No extension of Purushottam Exp to Jaipur: Rail Minister

Union Railway Minister Piyush Goyal on Wednesday made it clear that there will be no extension of Purushottam Express to Jaipur. He said the Express train may be run up to Jodhpur or Bikaner at the most. He was speaking to the MP of Jamshedpur Bidyut Baran Mahato during a meeting at the Rail Ministry.

Goyal, while replying to a question raised by the Jamshedpur MP regarding the demand for running Purushottam Express up to Jaipur, said the Northern Railway had objections to the proposal. He expressed ignorance over news articles published in this regard recently.

Mahato also discussed several other issues with the Railway Minister and demanded extension of Tata-Patna passenger train service up to Buxar and new train services for Bhagalpur, Katihar and Darbhanga from Tatanagar.
