Rail links Tripura with New Delhi: High Hope for Travellers

Tripura entered the broad gauge railway map of the country with Union Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu fagging off the Agartala – New Delhi ‘Tripura Sundari Express’. The foundation stone of the much awaited railway track to link Agartala to Akhoura in Bangladesh was jointly laid at the program by S Prabhu and his Bangladeshi counterpart Md Mujibul Haque.  ‘Tripura Sundari Express’ will run once a week on Sundays will reach New Delhi in 47 hours after travelling via Guwahati – New Jalpaiguri. Rs. 968 Crore was spent for this brand new Agartala – New Delhi rail link.

Mr. S Prabhu also addressed the gathering, that a regular train service between Agartala and Kolkata rail track is also about to open within one month. Being Kolkata the cultural capital of the nation and Tripura has a long historic connection with it, the newly developed rail link would definitely enhance the tourists destination to North East province of India from the mainland of the country.

He also committed to bring connectivity with Bangladesh. The relation between India and Bangladesh is very cordial and they (Bangladesh) are cooperative in India’s initiative. The rail track here would be extended to Sabroom, the southernmost town in Tripura, which is only 75 km from Chittagong port in Bangladesh. Chittagong port is the best port in Asia. Govt. of India want to connect Indian Railways track with Chittagong port through Sabroom.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is very keen to make northeast region a new tourist hub. India want to develop railway network in the entire North East and want to make it a holiday destination for travelers. Many unexplored places are to be unveiled with the help of Indian Railways rail link. India want to bring Bangladesh into the same tourist circuit, PM Modi said.
