Ranchi: Jharkhand Chief Minister Raghubar Das today urged Union Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu to name Hatia-Ernakulam Express after freedom fighter Bhagawan Birsa Munda.
The train was flagged off on October 27 from Hatia station.

In a telephonic conversation with Prabhu, the Chief Minister said naming the train after Munda would enable the people in the south know about his fight against exploitation under the British rule, a release said here.

The Railway Minister gave his consent, it said, adding a letter in this regard has been submitted to the railway ministry.
