know the interesting facts about it
The country’s heartbeat is the Indian Railways. No doubt about it. That is why the first citizen of the country, the President of India, Ram Nath Kovind, saw fit to move from this to his home. Yes, the Honorable Ram Nath Kovind will travel from Delhi to Kanpur tomorrow, namely June 25, 2021 by train. After about 15 years, that opportunity is coming, when the President will board the train. Prior to this, Dr APJ Abdul Kalam had traveled by train in December 2006 during his presidency.
Railways traditionally have President Saloon. From the country’s first President Dr Rajendra Prasad to Dr APJ Abdul Kalam, many Presidents had left the area. But now this salon is very old. That is why these days it is kept in the Train Museum. The train that President Ram Nath Kovind will travel tomorrow is Maharaja Express. This train is a luxury tourist train. Other trainers for this train will be assigned to the Special President.

This pride comes after 15 years in the history of the Indian Railways, when President Ram Nath Kovind will travel by train. Earlier, former Indian President APJ Abdul Kalam left Delhi for Dehradun by train in December 2006. During that time he boarded a train to take part in the Passing Out Parade of Army (IMA) positions at the Indian Military Academy.
Dr. Kalam traveled by train several times
Dr. Rajendra Prasad set the record
The record of most trains running as President is recorded in the name of the country’s first President, Dr Rajendra Prasad. Dr. Prasad had traveled all over the country by train during his presidency. He believed that it was only by taking a train that one could get acquainted with the various cultures of the country. He also traveled from Delhi to Chapapra to visit his hometown of Jiradei. Even after that many presidents had traveled by train.
Maharaja Express President Kovind
When President Ram Nath Kovind takes his train journey on June 25, he will not be a Presidential Saloon but will be a few Maharaja Express coaches. Maharaja Express is a luxury tourist train from the IRCTC Train Department of the PST. The train usually runs from October to March. That is why this time the train is parked in the yard itself. Some of its coaches will be placed on a special Presidential train. In line with this, additional trainers will be appointed, who will have the necessary train staff.
The train will stay in Kanpur for several days
President Kovind has a plan for a few days in Kanpur. This time he will also visit his native Paraunkh village in the Kanpur Dehat area. After visiting his hometown, the President will also train to Lucknow, the capital of Uttar Pradesh. It is said that on June 29, President Kovind will travel to Delhi from Lucknow himself. For so many days, all the necessary workers will leave Delhi to save the train.
