    Its so difficult to get couple of tickets to travel from Mumbai to Mangalore during summer vacation, why can`t Rly authorities add-up few super fast express from Mumbai to Mangalore to the existing matsyagandha 12619/12620 at least many would be benefitted with additional trains. Madam Mamta pls give a serious thought and do the needful.

    It's so sad news for Kannadigas. Because in central Congress rules so Karnataka BJP, may be that's the reason they are not providing more trains. There is only one train(Matsyagandha) for that also all Kerala people reserving there ticket because they r getting substitute train from Mangalore. We all kannadigas and Tulu people come forward to stop this else Matsyagandha also reach Kerala in some days.

    Its high time they start special trains orginating and terminating at mangalore to ease the pressure on Kannadigas going to native place.One fails to understand why so many trains preference is given to Kerala. May be the Sreedharan hangover is still there

    This is all happening because Mangalore is under Palghat division. One day there is a chance that Kerala lobby gains supremacy over Konkan Railway. We should protest against such things. May be we can ask to extend the Karwar special train atleast till Udupi if not mangalore

    I  totally agree with you Sharan.. This news will definitely hurt Mumbai Kannadigas like me. Just because of ticket/seat problem, so many Tulu/Kannadigas avoiding to visit their native places. Its so sad!!
