More trains to Kerala soon: Narayanasamy
Union Minister of State for PMO, V Narayanasamy, told a delegation from Kerala Samajam that he had already recommended to the Railway Ministry to take steps necessary to extend the Tiruchirapalli-Mangalore weekly express train (12653/54) to Puducherry and also start a new train between Puducherry and Kanyakumari.
