Exhibition on Mahatma Gandhi’s life in Muzaffarpur-Anand Vihar Sapt Kranti Express

150 Years of Mahatma Gandhi

The East Central Railway zone of Indian Railways paid tribute to Mahatma Gandhi on his 150th birth anniversary by converting an express train to a veritable exhibition on the transformation of "Mohan to Mahatma". The “Muzaffarpur-Anand Vihar Sapt Kranti Express” chugged off from Muzaffarpur with upgraded coaches. These coaches were painted and affixed with photographs and information on various events of Gandhiji's life. This exhibition was curated by Gandhi Smriti and Darshan Samiti and was inaugurated on October 2, 2019 by hon’ble Member of Parliament, Shri Radha Mohan Singh.
"I am thankful to the Railways for coming up with such a novel idea for paying tributes to Mahatma Gandhi whose links with Champaran and Motihari are recorded in history," Hon’ble Member of Parliament Shri Radha Mohan Singh said during a function that was organised after the train reached Bapu Dham Motihari station in East Champaran district. Shri Radha Mohan Singh also flagged off the “Muzaffarpur-Anand Vihar Sapt Kranti Express”
Shri Radha Mohan Singh, who is also the chairman of the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Railways, said the Bihar government also deserves commendation for taking up the face-lift of various spots in the state which have been associated with Gandhi.
Earlier, a cleanliness campaign/drive was organized on October 2, 2019 from Gandhi Chowk to Bapu Dham Railway Station Motihari via the Mahatma Gandhi Marg in Motihari in which almost 1000 people took part actively.
An exhibition by GSDS on “Mahatma Gandhi in Champaran” was set up at Charkha Park as part of the ‘Gandhi Mela’ organized to commemorate the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi.
