Railway minister inaugurates two new trains

New Delhi, March 4 (IANS): Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu on Friday flagged off two new trains - Kamakhya-Bhagat Ki Kothi (Jodhpur) Express and Siliguri-New Coochbehar, a new passenger service train, an official statement said here.

“The first one is a new express train -- Kamakhya-Bhagat Ki Kothi (Jodhpur) Express (Weekly) -- and the second one is a new passenger service -- Siliguri-New Coochbehar DEMU (six days a week) -- on the newly constructed New Coochbehar-Changrabandha section,” the statement said.

“This was a long-standing demand of the people of north-eastern region to provide train services in these areas,” the minister said while flagging off the two new trains through video-conferencing.

He said that the connectivity through diesel electric multiple unit (DEMU) train between New Coochbehar and Changrabandha in West Bengal will benefit all sections of the society including daily passengers and businessmen.

The minister said the other train service, the Kamakhya-Bhagat Ki Kothi Express, will not only connect north India from northeast India but will also help several pilgrims to visit Maa Kamakhya Temple in Guwahati.
