VISAKHAPATNAM Haribabu seeks daily train mysuru
The demand for making the Yesvantpur-Visakhapatnam-Yesvantpur weekly special, being operated by the South Western Railway, is increasing day-by-day.
Visakhapatnam MP Kambhampati Haribaubu has written a letter to Railway Minister Suresh Prabhakar Prabhu seeking conversion of the weekly into a daily train and extending it to Mysuru and connecting it to the southern capital cities of Bengaluru and Chennai and Vijayawada and terminating at Visakhapatnam.
appreciating the efforts of SWR for meeting the demand of thousands of Telugu people living in Bengaluru by introduced the weekly special, Mr. Haribabu noted that there was not even a single train starting from Visakhapatnam after the extension of Prasanthi Express, a daily express train, to Bhubaneswar.
This has resulted in reduction in the quota of berths from Visakhapatnam and causing inconvenience to the people of Visakhapatnam and from north Andhra, he said.
Sankranti gift
He hoped that the new daily super fast regular express train from Visakhapatnam to Mysuru would be rolled out for Sankaranti as a gift to the people of Andhra Pradesh in general and those from Visakhapatnam and north Andhra in particular.

Anakapalle MP Muttamsetti Srinivasa Rao has written to the Divisional Railway Manager of Waltair (East Coast Railway), the General Manager of South Western Railway (SWR), Hubbali and the Chief Operation Manager, SWR, Hubbali, seeking the conversion of the Visakhapatnam-Yeswantpur Suvidha express into Tatkal special.
Mr. Srinivasa Rao, while appreciating SWR for running the special train from Visakhapatnam to Yeswantpur for the benefit of a huge number of Telugu people working in the IT industry in Bengaluru, said many rail users had brought to his notice that the Yeswantpur-Visakhapatnam special is being run as Tatkal special but in the return trip it is operated as Suvidha express, causing a lot of financial burden on them. He also sought running the Yeswantpur-Visakhapatnam-Yeswantpur train as
a daily originating train.
