Puram and Yelahanka. “These can be converted into electric lines without taking over much land and the tickets can also be priced reasonably,” he said.
He said the issue would be discussed with Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu and Minister for Urban Development Venkaiah Naidu soon.
“Local trains will be economical. We can use existing lines with auto signaling and provide more stations en route to help passengers,” he said.
New Trains
The trains inaugurated are: train number 22695/22696 Yeswantpur-Jaipur-Yeswantpur Weekly Premium Express and train number 16587/16588 Yeswantpur-Bikaner-Yeswantpur Bi-weekly Express.
