A very interesting thing happened last Sunday. The Goa CM, Sri Manohar Parrikar wanted to travel by train from Madgaon to Kumta to attend a function there. The Goa govt officials checked the timetable and booked the tickets on the Jabalpur- Coimbatore special. But it was running very late and the CM came to MAO station on time. Only the 56641 Mangalore passenger was available at that time and the shocked railway officials offered to attach one inspection carriage on the rear for the CM to travel. This was rejected and the CM travelled on the second class general compartment till Kumta and he thoroughly enjoyed the travel.He chatted freely with the public and also took selfie with anyone who requested.
