Modi Express flagged off from Melbourne reaches Sydney

Narendra Modi became the first Prime Minister on whose name a train service has been organised in the history of Melbourne. The Overseas Friends of BJP organised the service to honour PM and celebrate his first official visit as PM to Australia. 'Modi Express' was flagged off by Victorian Multicultural Minister Matthew Guy.

The train which left for Sydney had four bogies with over 220 passengers who will be attending PM’s first public lecture in Sydney. The passengers danced and sang patriotic songs before boarding the train. Melbourne’s Southern Cross station which is the major railway station and transport hub in Melbourne wore a festive look for 'Modi Express'. PM’s supporters were served delicacies like ‘Modi Dhokla’ and ‘Modi Fafda’ for free by the organisers.

Thanks to the support of the rail authorities, the train was decorated with tri-colour balloons and the train also had posters and banners of PM. The train had pictures of important Indian landmarks too. The minister flagged off the train with Indian tri-colour.
