Jaipur, April 18 - The people of Bikaner are finally happy with their actor turned MP Dharmendra. He has requested the union railway minister to introduce a super fast train between Delhi and Bikaner to help make the journey to the desert town in Rajasthan more comfortable.

In a letter to Lalu Prasad, Dharmendra said that with Bikaner fast emerging as a popular tourist spot, especially with foreigners, the demand for a super fast train from the capital to Bikaner was very genuine.

Drawing the railway minister's attention to the long-standing demand of the people of Bikaner, the MP wrote that such a train would also greatly help the people who had to spend long hours covering the distance.

'I'm happy that our MP has finally demanded something for us,' said R. Goswami, a resident of Bikaner.

'Thank god he has spoken for us at last,' assented another resident Sangeeta Sharma.

The people who voted for 'Sholay's' Veeru to the seat have for long been angry with their actor-MP.

Irked by the non-execution of several promises made by Dharmendra in the Lok Sabha elections, the students of Bikaner had in 2005 decided to prevent the screening of his movies there.
