Union Home Minister Amit Shah and Union Railway Minister Piyush Goyal, along with Union Ministers Dr Jitendra Singh and Dr Harsh Vardhan, today flagged-off the Vande Bharat Express from New Delhi to the Vaishno Devi shrine in Jammu and Kashmir's Katra.

At the flag-off ceremony, Amit Shah said, "I'm proud that this 'Made in India' train is being flagged-off from here today. Railways is working towards achieving its targets keeping in mind principles of speed, scale, and service."

He highlighted the marked development initiatives on part of the government of India for the state of Jammu and Kashmir (J&K). "Before the abrogation of Article 370, there were many obstacles in J&K's path to development," Shah said, "In the next 10 years, J&K will be one of the most developed states." He added that the journey of development has begun with the Vande Bharat Express set to boost tourism in state.

The BJP, from its official Twitter handle, posted, "The Vande Bharat Express train will ply between New Delhi and Katra. The train will commence from Delhi at 6 am and reach Katra at 2 pm, then it will commence from Katra at 3 pm and reach Delhi at 11 pm, in a record time of 8 hours."

Last month, Indian Railways Board chairman Vinod Kumar Yadav said that the Delhi-Katra Vande Bharat train trials have been finished.

"It will be a gift to the pilgrims and it will begin plying from Navratras. We are trying to upgrade our busy routes. Delhi-Mumbai and Delhi-Howrah will be ready by December 2021," Yadav said.

"40 Vande Bharat trains will come out by 2022. New specifications are being worked on. There would be transparency, it will be a 'Make in India' project," Yadav further said.

    Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and all. However think of if you added some great pictures or video clips to give your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with pics and clips, this site could undeniably be one of the greatest in its field. Fantastic blog!
