Union minister of state for railways Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury on Thursday informed the Lok Sabha that the request of the Odisha government for extension of Buddhist train service to its shrines is under consideration.

“The Odisha government has approached Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation to extend one trip of the Mahaparinirvan Express train to Odisha state to cover a few important Buddhist sites there,” Chowdhury said in a written reply.

The Mahaparinirvan Express connects prominent Buddhist shrines in Delhi, Bihar and Uttar Pradesh. (PTI)
