PM: Railway stations can become hubs of economic activity
Railway stations need to step up from being modes of transport to becoming hubs of economic activity, said Prime Minister Narendra Modi, while inaugurating several key projects of the Railways in Gujarat via video conference. Modi inaugurated the redeveloped Gandhinagar Capital Railway Station on Friday. The new Railway projects that were inaugurated include the gauge converted-cumelectrified Mahesana – Varetha line, and the newly electrified Surendranagar – Pipavav section. This section will be integrated with the Dedicated Freight Corridors and is equipped to handle doublestack containers.
He also flagged off two new trains, the Gandhinagar Capital – Varanasi Superfast Express and MEMU service trains between Gandhinagar Capital and Varetha.
