The Railway Minister remotely laid the foundation stones of 5 railway stations – Sangdan, Monghall, Ratnipora, Naidgam, and Razwan. These stations will come up soon on the Baramulla-Qazigund rail section. NDTV quotes Railway Minister while addressing the media saying,



The chief minister (Mehbooba Mufti) and I have talked about how to increase tourism by virtue of railways. So, we will soon start a Vistadome train because I do not think there is any other place in the whole world like Kashmir. When people come to see the beauty of Kashmir, how will they see it sitting inside a train? So, we will launch it here. We have placed an order with our coach factories for the Vistadome train.

The minister further said that he had nothing else to give on Eid, so he thought of making a start by these stations. Though a bit late, the minister wished the people “Eid Mubarak” with these stations. He termed this beginning as athe start of a new era of development in Kashmir.
