Believe it or not, but it’s a fact that a Shramik Special train, carrying migrants, left Gujarat for Bihar but reached Karnataka. Yet another Shramik Special, carrying over 1,200 migrants from Surat, was supposed to reach Chapra in Bihar, but instead, it reached Rourkela in Odisha. Two other similar trains, instead of reaching Patna, reached Purulia (in West Bengal) and Gaya, respectively.

Notwithstanding the claim of Railway Ministry to have run hundreds of Shramik Special trains and helped lakhs of migrants reach their home
Ab sab news fake hoga.Now they will hide everything
IR needs to take action against this publication, if it's fake. We can understand if some part of the route has been diverted like BSL to NGP then to again via BSP to reach Bihar, etc. But all way till SBC looks too much unrealistic.
Thoda bahut sachayi hogi and thoda fake. Jo train Oddisha pahucha tha usme sachayi ho sakti hain, Lekin Bluru pahucha, isme thoda zyada hi ho gaya phekna.
Yes that news of the train which went to ROU was correct. Probably the mistake that railways made was that they could have communicated about the diversion to passengers in the beginning of the journey itself. Since these trains are not stopping midway in any stations it is better to keep passengers informed

Good info, this video link clarifies most of the doubt about shramik spls.
TKD WAP 7 37258 with SER marked empty rake of Shramik special train near Ghaziabad jn.
Nice to see reflective bands on TKD P7s.
BTW it has been more than 2 months since I last clicked a loco. 😔
Is it SER or ECR marked empty rake?
It was of SER Rake, starting 2-3 coaches was of ECR.
