Suresh Prabhu’s flight arrives late, Tejas Express’s inaugural ride delayed

Mumbai: The inaugural ride of the premium luxury train Tejas Express from Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (CST) to Karmali in Goa on Monday afternoon was delayed by almost 45 minutes. Delay in the arrival of Union Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu at the inaugural function postponed the train’s departure. A technical discrepancy in one of the flights at the Mumbai airport delayed the arrival of the Union minister. The CST-Karmali Tejas Express was scheduled to depart at 3.25 pm from CST after Prabhu would have inaugurated it from Yogi Sabagruha Hall, Dadar, through video-conferencing.
The train’s journey, however, commenced around 4.10 pm.
“I was at Kudal yesterday for a different function. While coming, my flight was delayed today due to congestion of flights at the Mumbai airport caused by an emergency landing of the Mumbai-Bhubaneswar Air India flight,” Prabhu said. His flight from Goa airport was delayed by almost half an hour and reached Mumbai airport at 3.30 pm.
