Following this, the agitators raised slogans and burnt the posters of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Chief Minister Siddaramaiah and Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa at the entrance of the railway station before they were arrested.

Absolutely! In Jan this train was run as special train for a month, later was cancelled due to poor patronage. I don't understand the rationale behind introducing it again on the same time table, may be they are hoping for a miracle!!
Also, I doubt about the reasoning behind assigning this TT for this train, in both the directions it runs along with the crowed of Hussain Sagar Exp, Hubbali Exp, Shatabdi Exp. There is no reason/opportunity for people to take this train! Sometimes I wonder whether the TT is designed in such a way that it runs flop and discard the train completely after few days.
Trains once introduced will not be discarded on IR. They I'll either run in losses with less patronage. I feel instead of this intercity express the present Hubli Secunderabad be made daily and increase coaches unreserved coaches and add ac chair car by making 21 coaches
Train can be discarded easily if patronage is poor.
Example is Indore double decker and Howrah double decker
And many other trains also discarded.
Hubballi - Secunderabad Exp is already daily and its not that jam packed. It should be terminated at GR and Intercity Exp should be scheduled such that it acts as perfect link for HYB - GR - UBL trains.
looks weird. UBL-SC is already acting as ICE between GR and HYB. what is needed is a train in the opposite direction, morning departure from HYB and return arrival by night at HYB
There is no proper planning sir. All trains run as clusters in both directions. There are lot of trains in the morning from GR to HYB and in the afternoon from HYB to GR but there are no trains in the morning from HYB to GR and in the evening from GR to HYB.
