USA and Japanese officials said they could have targeted the missile but did not make the effort because it was not aimed at land. US President Donald Trump during his United Nations speech warned he would "totally destroy" North Korea if threatened.

Minister of Railways Piyush Goyal will be present in Vadodara on September 22 while Manoj Sinha, junior railway minister, is likely to be present in Surat. The first Mahamana Express was unveiled as part of Railways' Model Rake Project in 2016 running between Varanasi - New Delhi and the other route is from Bhopal-Khajuraho.

The Mahamana Express train has been named after former Hindu Mahasabha president Madan Mohan Malviya.

On its maiden journey, the train will run from Vadodara (Gujarat) to Varanasi (Uttar Pradesh) after the PM will launch it using a remote control.
