The Pune Pravasi Sangh has demanded direct trains to Udaipur, Jamnagar City and Dwarka. The Sangh has also demanded that a direct train to Chennai from Pune instead of Mumbai would benefit passengers in a big way.
These demands were made by Kanubhai Trivedi, president of the Pune Pravasi Sangh Trivedi said the Sangh has a number of plans, especially for long distance travellers. “Besides the electrification of railways, I will be now pressing for the demands of starting direct trains to Udaipur, Jamnagar and Dwarka.
Secondly, all the trains running to Chennai, which make a stop at Pune, come from Mumbai. However, thanks to that, the passengers boarding these trains at Pune station either do not get room, or appear on the waitlist, and thus have to suffer a lot.” Trivedi, a crusader for railway commuter’s rights who turns 81 on Tuesday, said
