Rename Mysuru-Bengaluru Tipu Express to Wadiyar Express : Demands Mysuru BJP MP

Editorial Comments

  • The Railway administration should decide to rename without having anyone make such a demand.
  • Instead of erasing the memories of the invaders, India is the only country that has cherished the memories !

Mysuru (Karnataka) – BJP MP Pratap Simha of Mysuru wrote to the Railway Minister Shri Ashwini Vaishnaw demanding the renaming of Mysuru-Bengaluru Tipu express to Wadiyar Express.

Simha has not mentioned the name of Tipu anywhere in the letter and has referred to the train only with the train number. The letter states, Wadiyar Maharaj of Mysore Kingdom has made a great contribution towards the development of railways. There is no historical evidence of his (Tipu Sultan’s) contribution to the development of the State during his time.
