Meghalaya Put On Railway Map


Prime Minister Narendra Modi had inaugurated the first passenger train from Mendipathar in Meghalaya to Dudhnoi in Assam, thereby putting Meghalaya for the first time on India’s railway map. He compared the northeast region to Goddess Lakshmi and said development of the region will help the rest of India.”If we can develop the infrastructure of the region, development will follow. The northeast region will achieve new heights of development if infrastructures like rail and road links are developed,” he said. The prime minister also stressed the need to modernise the railways and said his government has decided to invite private investment in railways and privatise the railway stations to make them economically viable.
