Imphal, Oct 10:

The first passenger train is all set to arrive at Khongsang in Manipur on October 13. Official source said that the passenger train No. 12097/12098 Agartala-Jiribam-Agartala Jan Shatabdi Express will be flagged off by President Droupadi Murmu on October 13 at around 10 am from Agartala Railway station.
President Droupadi Murmu is on three days visit to Tripura and Assam from October 12 to October 14. During her visit, the president will inaugurate various developmental projects taken up by the Tripura and Assam governments.
Khongsang Railway station of Manipur is just around 106 Km from Imphal along NH 37. It is just around 4 hours drive from the state capital, Imphal.
Mention may be made that the first goods train had earlier arrived at Khongsang railway station from Rani Gaidinliu station in Tamenglong district of Manipur on March 27.
On March 14, 2022, North-East connectivity got a boost when an engine arrived at the Khongshang railway station as part of a trial run for the first passenger train.
On January 27, 2022, a freight train chugged into the Rani Gaidinliu Railway Station, thereby putting Manipur on the country’s railway map 75 years after independence. “Transformation of the Northeast continues. Manipur’s connectivity will be enhanced, and commerce will be boosted. Wonderful products from the state can travel all over the nation,” Prime Minister Narendra Modi tweeted, tagging Union Minister for Development of North Eastern Region G Kishan Reddy.
