Describing "common people" as the focus of all his initiatives, Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu on Thursday proposed long-distance superfast trains for unreserved travel.


Presenting the Rail Budget 2016, Prabhu said the Indian Railways would introduce an "Antyodaya Express" long-distance superfast train for common people, to run on dense traffic routes.


The railways would add two to four "Deen Dayalu" coaches to some long-distance trains for unreserved travel, which would have drinking water facilities, the minister added.
