Jammu Tawi Sealdah Hamsafar when will start
Why Uttar Pradesh is getting train in every months I think prabhu ji has forgotten other state or we have only two states up and Gujarat.
After more than 60 years of independence their is no direct train to Shri Jaganath Puri from North India (CHANDIGARH, Himachal, Punjab,Haryana and Jammu).
Too sad for the people/
tourist of these states.
