  2. Dr.B R Pandit says:

    -Bhavnagar – Kochuvelli
    Surat – Bhavnagar express to Mahuva(19025/19026)
    The first train may be a link train starting from Bhavnagar and Porbander as it is not clear at present.
    Secondly at present we do not have Bhavnagar Surat train but we have Mahuva Surat weekly that may be extended upto Bhavnagar or it may be a mix train again it is not clear .However we need daily train between Bhavnagar and Surat.
    Both announcement is nothing as we do not have any train after 10years of gap.
    A daily night train is of immediate requirement for Bhavnagar

  3. ER.RATHOD says:

    no any train connectivity from bhavnagar to north indian region . mamta ji why there is only south n eastern area ??????????????????

  4. saahil says:

    why they dont make rajkot-secunderabad a daily train. there has been a long demand to make the train daily and decrease the trip hours by making it super express.

  5. ER. Patel says:

    First think for gujarat and then think for Halar…

  6. gujarati says:

    I alos want one!!

  7. nb says:

    The Railway was a subjugetion colonial tool for the colonialist of Britain.And they always favoured Anglo Indian and Bangali Babus who were even Anti Indian to extreme to please their Gore masters.

    The truth is although Ghandi recognised Railway as Chains of colonialist wanting to dominate,desecrate and divide India.
    British knowingly built Bridges over holy places and rivers to annoy Hindus.
    After so called independence, the Railway Banglalis of Delhi Saltanat has left the old relationship of Master and Slave in the original British colonial tradition.All states get neglected and Money generated by Railway is diverted and looted depriving Railway for funds to expand and to repair.

    If Gujarat wants to truly develop the Gujarat, then Gujarati Government should make a effort to free Gujarat from the colonial Dhoosari of Indian Railway , and start Low Carbon Rapid electric Inter city Transport system that is weather proof,reliable and so frequent that the stations have a new train every 2 to 3 minutes every hour during the day until 12 at night then every half hour or hourly.
    What Mumta has done is a clever ploy to give rest of India a fake promise not solid commitment.
    The money is spent for Bangalis and Bangali election.
    A feasibility study is a simple exercise to favour a son in law or other corrupt person millions of rupees to write an essay of yes or know of a probable project.

    Wake up Guys, fight & Get Independant Gujarati electric oil free Infrastructure, trains Independant of Indian Railway..
    Every time the Price of a Barrel of Oli goes up by 10$ the economy suffers GDP of a country goes dawn by 1%.
    Sorry to wake you up from a Mumtabai’s suhana sapna.

  8. great gujarati says:


    =>What is the cost of Electric train project starting from production to implementation through out Gujarat?
    =>The number of trains we need ?
    =>What company to get the technology from ? How much will they charge ?
    =>Do we need new rail tracks ? If yes, then gigantic cost of it. If no, then what technology can accommodate existing implementation.
    =>Do we need to alter existing infrastructure for it ? If yes, then to what extent ? If no, then to find out similar type of technology
    =>If implemented successfully, then central railway system would become redundant. If used both altogether, then confusion in terms of management in many ways.

    Just, lot of Questions.

  13. Mr. B. s Makwana says:

    It is hopeless budget for Saurashtra, Amreli, Veraval & Bhavnagar. Nobody from saurashtara side is taking leadership for railway ministry, UPA & NDA ( Party : Congrss & BJP both are hopless for Poor people).
    Why Minister thinking only our State. They should think for all people of Indian. Since long time Demanded for Bhavnagar but since 10 years nothing is given. Dhasa Jetalsar & Botad – Ahmedabad gauge conversion is urgently needed.

    Wake up Guys, fight & Get Independant Gujarati For electric Trains ,oil free Infrastructure, Independant of Indian Railway..
