KVIC chairman Vinai Kumar Saxena was quoted in the agency report saying, “We have written a letter to Indian Railways for running a Khadi Express train which would exhibit Khadi products linked with Mahatma Gandhi in view of his 150th birth anniversary.”

Reports says that the ‘Khadi Express’ train will be a five-bogie train and it will provide the facility to sell Khadi products to the people. The train will provide Khadi selling facilities to the destinations where Mahatma Gandhi had stayed. The train will be stationed at such stations for one day in order to sell Khadi to the people, the report added.
