15 coach train launch delayed

The launch of the 15 coach local train on WR has been delayed. Railway Minister Mamata Banerjee, who was supposed to flag off the train on 13th November 2009, has postponed her visit. The reason for this decision is apparantly the recent warning of cyclone Phyan (I hope I got the spelling right!). I do not know whether this decision was taken by the minister herself or her advisors. But one thing is sure; the reason is absolutely ridiculous! It did not rain at all in Mumbai for 48 hours before her scheduled visi, and the cyclone had fizzled out days before 13th November!

The plethora of other inaugurations too scheduled for 13th November, like a few new trains, Dadar terminus etc have been postponed.  The new date for these inaugurations is not known yet.
