Launch of electric train postponed

Mysuru, dhns: The launch of electric trains between Bengaluru and Mysuru on the recently completed double track will now take place in the second week of January. The SWR had scheduled the launch on Tuesday.

Sources in the SWR said, even though Union Railway Minister Manoj Sinha had agreed to attend the function, the dates of Chief Minister Siddaramaiah could not be adjusted. The state BJP MPs are trying to get the prime minister for the launch at a later date. The function may be shifted to Mysuru and Modi will attend it. As Mysuru is the chief minister's home town, Modi's visit may help the BJP in the polls, added sources.
