Rahim Khan, MLA, has hailed the proposal to introduce an intercity express between Bidar and Secunderabad, calling it “a boon to the region”.

“It is the first time since Independence that a train will start from Bidar.

This will help thousands of people who travel to Hyderabad every day,” Mr. Khan said.

He said a delegation, led by N. Dharam Singh, MP, had urged the Railway Minister to start an intercity express. — Staff Correspondent
