Nashik: NCP MP Sameer Bhujbal has demanded introduction of a direct Nashik-Mumbai train and sought to name it as 'Kusumagraja Express' after late poet and noted playwright V V Shirwadkar alias Kavi Kusumagraja.

In a letter to Union Railway Minister Mamta Banerjee, Bhujbal demanded that the train, on the lines of Jan Shatabdi, is needed urgently considering the heavy rush of passengers on the Nashik-Mumbai route.

He said it should be named after the Jnanpith award winning poet from the district on the centenary celebration year of Kusumagraja.

"We were expecting announcement for Nashik-Mumbai Express from Banerjee but the minister has announced Manmad-Mumbai 'Rajyarani Express', disappointing Nashikites. I had placed the request before the minister even before the Rail Budget," he said.
