Hoshiarpur: With the efforts and initiative taken by the Hoshiarpur MP and Union Minister of State, Mr. Vijay Sampla, the Indian Railways have reduced the fare of Begampura Express by 50%. Notably, the devotees of Sri Guru Ravidass ji go to Kashi (Varanasi) every year in order to celebrate the Birth Anniversary of Guru Ravidass ji. Thus, it is a big relief to the devotees of Guru Ravidass ji.
It is noteworthy here, the Begampura Express is a daily superfast train starting from Jammu Tavi. Its destination is Varanasi. Varanasi is also known as Kashi and Banaras.
Union MoS Vijay Sampla said, “Sant Niranjan Dass ji of Dera sach khand Ballan asked me to make efforts for the concession in the fares of Begampura Express and I met the Railway Minister who agreed for the 50% concession.” Sampla added, “I am always here for the service of the people.”
Notably, Vijay Sampla is the Dalit face of Punjab BJP who had served as President of SC Morcha of Punjab BJP in the past. It was also said that Vijay Sampla was made Union MoS in order to lure the Dalit voters of Punjab.
