Goa CM wants Union Railway Minister to start EMUs or DMUs

Panaji: Taking opportunity of having Union railway minister Suresh Prabhu on the same stage as him, CM Laxmikant Parsekar requested him to start additional trains within the state to reduce the traffic on Goa’s roads. “I think if EMUs (Electric Multiple Unit) or DMUs (Diesel Multiple Unit) trains are provided from Pernem to Canacona once or twice a day, probably the road traffic over the route would reduce. Of course this will be possible when the double track is introduced but until then considering the present day situation, EMUs or DMUs would be of great use even for a stretch of 100 km. I request him to seriously think in this regard for the stretch of Goa,” he said during the closing function of the two day e lets knowledge exchange programme.
