MLA Manish Jaiswal gave his response
Sadar MLA Manish Jaiswal has given his reaction after the notification issued by the Railways and he told that it is a very good initiative. Although Vande Bharat train used to go from Hazaribagh to Ranchi. But due to its high fare, it was going beyond the reach of the common people. But the arrival of Intercity Express will provide a lot of convenience to the people.
Soon trains will start for metropolitan cities also
Along with this, he has also expressed the hope that soon trains will start running from here to the metros as well. However, the coming year 2024 is an election year and it is expected that in the election year, Hazaribagh will get trains for metros as well.
