With an unprecedented rush of rallyists expected on Sunday, special arrangements have been made at Patna Junction to tackle the situation.
All mail and express trains will stay put at either Danapur or Rajendra Nagar railway stations instead of coming to Patna Junction.
The trains coming from New Delhi will have a stopover at Danapur from 2pm to 12 midnight so that passengers don't face any problems in boarding or alighting from trains.
Similarly, trains coming from Howrah will remain at Rajendra Nagar. DRM, Danapur, LM Jha said there would be complete ban on parking of vehicles towards the Hanuman temple side of Patna Junction from 10am to midnight in view of the heavy rush.
However, the Karbigahiya side of the station would be free for use and entry to the Patna station would be permitted from that point only.
Notably, seven special trains have been marked for the rally, which would depart from platform number 1 of Patna Junction and platform 4 of Rajendra Nagar station.
According to railway authorities, all trains going to Howrah will leave from platform number 2 and 3. Those going to Delhi will leave from platform number 6 and 7, while mail and express trains going to Gaya will leave from platform number 8 and 9.
The passenger trains for Gaya will leave from platform number 10. Passengers will, however, not be allowed to use middle foot overbridge to reach platform number 10.
