PATNA: Railway minister Piyush Goyal and CM Nitish Kumar on Sunday jointly flagged off two passenger trains on the newly converted to broad gauge line, one each on the Raxaul-Narkatiaganj and Biraul-Harnagar sections of the East Central Railway in the presence of Union and state ministers, MPs and MLAs.
Just when the railway minister and others flagged off the two trains through remote control from the Bapu Sabhagar here, the video screen showed the two trains chugging off the platforms amid clapping by people at the other end.
Union ministers R K Singh,
Ashwini Kumar Choubey, Ram Kripal Yadav and Giriraj Singh besides deputy CM Sushil Kumar Modi, state BJP president Nityanand Rai, state ministers Nand Kishore Yadav, Prem Kumar and Mangal Pandey as well as MP Rajesh Ranjan alias Pappu Yadav, MLAs Arun Kumar Sinha and Sanjeev Chaurasia were also present. Earlier, ECR general manager Lalit Chandra Tripathi welcomed the guests.
On the occasion, after formally handing over the railways land between R-Block and Digha, Goyal said the four-lane road to be constructed on that stretch would greatly solve the communication problems of people of Patna. Goyal said the railways had been making its own “bit contribution” in the development of Bihar under the leadership of CM Nitish.
Goyal also laid the foundation stone for the construction of the new railway line on Supaul-Araria section. The 95.55km-long project would involve an expenditure of Rs1,605.17 crore. It would pass through Supaul and Araria parliamentary constituencies and have Supaul, Pipra, Triveniganj, Raniganj and Araria as major stations.
He also dedicated to the people the 8.60km-long part of the Biraul-Harnagar section that was converted to broad gauge entailing an expenditure of Rs89.70 crore.
Similarly, the 41km-long Raxaul-Narkatiaganj section, converted to broad gauge, was also dedicated to the people by the railway minister. The conversion was completed on July 25 with an expenditure of Rs172 crore.
Referring to these railway sections, Goyal also said the railways had decided to install CCTV cameras at 6,000 railway stations in the country.
