“I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to Minister Shri @AshwiniVaishnaw for arranging a special train @RailMinIndia to Chennai via Warangal and Vijayawada in response to inquiries made to travelers from the South Indian states stranded in Varanasi,” Reddy wrote on his official Twitter handle.

Protests by students, unions, opposition parties and other organisations against the four-year restricted recruitment scheme ‘Agnipath’ where several train stations were attacked by the violent mob, and rain furry in the northeast, have led to continuous disruptions in train operations.

As per a report from news agency PTI, more than 500 trains were running late Monday.
