New Delhi:

Mughalsarai Junction was on Sunday renamed as Deen Dayal Upadhyaya railway station with BJP president Amit Shah, Union Railway minister Piyush Goel and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath flagging off a passenger train and a goods train with an all-women crew.

The century-old station on the busy Delhi-Howrah route was given a saffron touch at places while signboards were put up to reflect the new station name.
