Public of Rewa M.P. are in urgent need of a train to Allahabad since there are lot many passengers to visit from Rewa to Allahabad and back daily. There are quite a few number of Buses available for the same, and they too take 5 to 6 hours for the travel, more-ever the travel is very uncomfortable as well.
The timings and price of ticket of the already running Rewa New Delhi express 2427 and 2428 dosen't suits to daily commutators.
Railway will itself never announce a train for the route since,
railways counts the number of tickets booked at the station(Rewa) for the destination (Allahabad). It is the Public representatives, like MP, MLAs and Mayor who need to come forward for an intercity/passenger to Allahabad from Rewa.
Earliar also there was a DMU train to Manikpur which was running on daily basis but was stopped because of non-booking of tickets on the route, but that too is because of some obvious reasons, since most of the stations to which person prefer to travel come on the route after manikpur, since it is after crossing the Manikpur station when the villages close to rewa come enroute.
Also Rewa Bilaspur express arrives Rewa at 6:00 AM in the morning and departs at 9:30 PM in the evening, which clearly suggests that it is standing on the station for more than 12 hours, which is ample time for the train to go to Allahabad and return back, railway doesn't needs to provide a separate rack for the same.
I have also checked that route from sagma to allahabad is not busy in the aforesaid time, and a passenger train can be easily adjusted. The only thing is that its important for the train to bypass satna station, which is not a big deal since there is another train intercity express for the passengers to satna.
I think it requires just the commitment and attention of officials and representatives to do the same.
