Thanks Laloo

Finally, after 11 years of requests and representations, the voice of the people of Allahabad has been heard.

The Railways have finally agreed to extend the famed Prayag Raj Express, Allahabad's link to the country's capital to a whopping 26 bogies,making it the longest train in the country, and has eliminated the quotas for all intermediary stations.
