PM inaugurates Chilahati Express

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina today (June 4) inaugurated a new passenger train - Chilahati Express - for the Chilahati-Dhaka-Chilahati route.
 
She launched the operation of the train by blowing a whistle and waving a flag at a ceremony held at Chilahati Railway Station in Nilphamari as the chief guest, joining virtually from her official residence Ganabhaban.
 
The new Chilahati Express, having the capacity of carrying 800 passengers with modern facilities, will ply across the Chilahati-Dhaka-Chilahati route six-day in a week.
 
Chilahati Railway Station is an important intersection in Nilphamari district as the Haldibari-Chilahati route was revived to resume rail communication between Bangladesh and India.
 
Alongside goods-laden wagons, the inter-country Mitali Express is running on this route.
 
Principal Secretary M Tofazzel Hossain Miah moderated the ceremony, while railway secretary Dr. Md. Humayun Kabir delivered a welcome address. Railways Minister Md. Nurul Islam Sujan, MP, also spoke on the occasion.
 
Besides, the signaling systems of 130 railway stations have been modernised. Now, 142 new trains are running for passengers' movement.
