On Thursday K Chandrasekhar Rao the Chief Minister of Telangana State favored renaming the New Delhi- Hyderabad Andhra Pradesh Express train after the new state. KCR said, renaming the train as Telangana Express will reflect the new reality with regards to the division of Andhra Pradesh.
The CM said this after observing that the train got its present name when undivided Andhra Pradesh existed with Hyderabad as its capital, but he felt that it is not proper to continue with the same after formation of Telangana.
Today a release from his office said that, the CM sought renaming the Telangana Express, which runs between Hyderabad and Sirpur Kagaznagar (in Adilabad district) as Komaram Bheem Express.
The release also added that, Rao would write a letter to the Centre seeking the two changes.
