BIDAR: Did the now-resigned railway minister Dinesh Trivedi remember his links with Bidar while presenting his first railway budget?

 The answer apparently seems to be a firm ‘Yes’ with the announcement of a new train between Bidar-Hyderabad City in the budget.

 Trivedi, who had worked as a trainee pilot at the Air Base here, has fulfilled the long-pending demand of the people of the district, according to MLC Khazi Arshad Ali and district Congress general secretary Aravind Arali.

 Both the leaders told Express here on Sunday that on his visit to Bangalore during the launch of ‘Namma Metro,’ Trivedi told a delegation of the district led by Lok Sabha member Dharam Singh, that he had worked as a trainee pilot in Bidar, the time that ‘changed the course of his life’. He promised the delegation that he will try to fulfil the demands of the people of the district.

 Bidar-Hyderabad City train was the six-decade-old demand of the  people.
