New train to Bandra flagged off

Abohar, November 10

The long-pending demand of train from Sriganganagar to Mumbai stands accepted with the launch of 19708-19707 Sriganganagar-Jaipur-Bandra terminus train.

The inaugural train was flagged off at 9.40 pm yesterday, but no politician was present to claim the credit as the Election Commission had enforced code of conduct in view of the Municipal Corporation elections.

The train will benefit passengers from Abohar and Fazilka, who earlier had to wait for the Mumbai-bound Punjab Mail till midnight at the Bathinda station.

Local passengers offered Rajasthani ‘pagri’ to OP Kulshresht, assistant divisional manager (commercial), and other officials at the inauguration ceremony. Over 500 passengers boarded the train in the inaugural trip and the Railways got the initial revenue of Rs 72,000. With this, the direct link with Jaipur, which was terminated in September 2009, has also been restored.

The direct train was withdrawn due to a gauge conversion project. — OC
