NEW DELHI: The Indian Railways has been working effortlessly to connect every part of the country with rail network.  In this direction, the Minister of Railways Suresh Prabhakar Prabhu on Friday flagged off two new trains through video-conferencing.

Minister of State for Railways Manoj Sinha was also present on the occasion.

Speaking on the occasion, Prabhu said this was a long-standing demand of the people of northeastern region to provide train services in these areas.

He said the connectivity through DEMU train between New Coochbehar and Changrabandha in West Bengal would benefit all, including daily-passengers and businessmen.

He said the other train service — the Kamakhya-Bhagat Ki Kothi Express — will not only connect north India from north-east India, but will also help lakhs and lakhs of pilgrims visiting Maa Kamakhya Temple.

He said this train will reach Bhagat Ki Kothi Station by passing seven states.
