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.

Why All The Trains Starting From Kerala To Mumbai & Mumbai To Kerala????
Pls make some changes for Kannada/ Tulu peoples also in the mind of Railway Minister / Concerned Karnataka Rly Govt People

What about those kannadigas between karwar to udupi special trains are not helpful for them.There should be one special train only upto Mangalore halting at all station.

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.

Very bad for kannadigas that one one train starts from manglore except matsyagandha no trains are starting no tickets are avilable in any train atleast for direct manglore there should be 3 more trains help us oh god

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

There should be atleast 3 trains from Mangalore. we should have a will to get trains from mangalore not from Kerala. Where is shatabdi xpress which should start from mangalore.

Nandakumar, Udupi/Bangalore

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!!
