Chief minister Parkash Singh Badal on Sunday urged the union railway minister DV Sadananda Gowda to name a train after Namdhari Azadi Sangram in view of Kuka Movement's historic significance in India's freedom struggle.

In a letter to Gowda, the CM sought action as the matter was pending for long. He reiterated the need to name a train as Namdhari Azadi Sangram Express and said, "The centre has already recognised the Kuka Movement as a part of India's freedom struggle and held year-long celebrations in 2007 to mark the movement's 150th year."
