The Delhi-Thiruvananthapuram Rajdhani Express will not take a halt in Goa from Monday. The decision has been taken after more than 20 people tested positive for deadly COVID-19 in Goa. Notably, the fresh cases emerged nearly a month after the state declared itself coronavirus-free.
Goa Chief Minister Pramod Sawant stated that the central government has agreed to his request of cancelling the Goa halt of the Rajdhani Express starting from Delhi, in wake of the increase in the number of cases from train passengers. However, the Nizamuddin Express running between Thiruvananthapuram and Delhi will continue to take a stop at Madgao railway station.
