Congress Takes Aim at PM Modi for Calling RRTS Trains “Namo Bharat” Prime Minister Narendra Modi came under fire from the Congress on Thursday for referring to the RRTS trains as “Namo Bharat,” claiming that there is “simply no limit to his self-obsession.” According to official sources, PM Modi would name the RRTS trains “Namo Bharat” when they are introduced.
Senior Congress leader Jairam Ramesh responded to it by writing on X, saying, “After Namo stadium, now Namo trains.” His fixation with himself knows no bounds. Another Congress MP, Pawan Khera, questioned why Bharat was even used in the name of the Prime Minister Modi-named cricket stadium in Ahmedabad. Simply rename the nation Namo, and you’ll be done with it.

RAPIDX Station Murals Show the Changes That RRTS Will Bring Bright At a recently constructed station of RAPIDX, India’s first semi-high-speed regional rail service, murals have been painted with poignant subtitles with the goal of redefining long-distance travel in the Delhi-Meerut area.
The responsibility of overseeing the building of the RRTS between Delhi and Meerut fell to the National Capital Region Transport Corporation (NCRTC).
There are currently murals being painted at the Sahibabad, Ghaziabad, and Duhai RAPIDX stations, out of the five stations that make up the core segment. Other completed stations are also having murals completed, a senior official told PTI.
The hand-paintings, according to officials, will illustrate the transformation that RRTS will bring about in people’s life. They also added that these paintings are a potent tool for community involvement, cultural representation, and self-expression.

RRTS Is Called “Namo Bharat” Union Minister Hardeep Singh Puri declared on Thursday that PM Modi will name the RRTS trains “Namo Bharat” when they are inaugurated.
The first semi-high-speed regional rail service project in India is being carried out by the National Capital Region Transport Corporation (NCRTC), which dubbed the RRTS trains “RAPIDX” in April. The Union Minister of housing and Urban Affairs declared that RRTS trains will be dubbed “Namo Bharat” in a post on X that was posted in Hindi.
AI-Powered Baggage Scanning Device to Warn Security Personnel The baggage scanning system at the priority section stations of the Delhi-Ghaziabad-Meerut RRTS Corridor is outfitted with artificial intelligence-powered technology, according to representatives of the National Capital Region Transportation Company (NCRTC). This technology will alert and assist security staff in identifying items that are restricted or prohibited.
A senior official stated, “The Uttar Pradesh government has given the Uttar Pradesh Special Security Force (UPSSF) responsibility for the security of all state stations, and the deployment of security force at the priority section’s stations has already been applied.”
In addition, the UP Police will send a dog squad, a bomb detection and disposal squad, and a quick reaction team to investigate and prevent crimes in stations.
The lounge for the premium class is one of the amenities in the modern RRTS trains. PM Modi is scheduled to launch RAPIDX, India’s first semi-high-speed regional rail service, on Friday. The trains will have a variety of passenger comforts and high-tech features.
Each RAPIDX train will have six coaches in total, including a premium coach. There is a special women’s carriage on every train; it’s the one next to the premium coach. There are serial numbers on the coach seats.
Extra amenities that are designed with commuters in mind are included in premium coaches. These include reclining chairs, coat hooks, magazine holders, and footrests.
They also have a separate color code for each seat and an opening for a vending machine in the future.
Platform screen doors, or PSDs, are installed at every RRTS station for added security. The signaling system and RRTS train doors are integrated with these PSDs.
When the train stops at a station, passengers will be able to board and exit using a push-button system on the doors, according to officials. According to officials, this action has been made in an effort to “save energy.”
