NEW DELHI, Sept 24: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday announced that the work of redevelopment of more than 500 major railway stations of the country has begun and that these new stations built during the Amrit Kaal will be called 'Amrit Bharat' stations.
"We all know that there are several railway stations which have not been developed for the past several years... Work to develop these stations is underway... All the stations which will be developed in the 'Azadi Ka Amrit Kaal' will be called 'Amrit Bharat stations," PM Modi said in his virtual address as he flagged off nine Vande Bharat Express trains.
"These stations will become the identity of the new Bharat in the coming days", he added
The Prime Minister emphasized that "an India on the path of being developed will now have to modernize its railway stations as well".
With this thinking in mind, for the first time a campaign for the development and modernization of railway stations has begun in India, he said adding that today, a record number of foot over bridges, lifts and escalators are being constructed in the country for the convenience of railway passengers.
"Nine Vande Bharat Express trains being launched today will significantly improve connectivity as well as boost tourism across India," PM Modi said ahead of the flag off.
The prime minister said that the speed and scale of infrastructure development match with aspirations of 140 crore Indians.
"The speed and scale of infrastructure development are matching with the aspirations of 140 crore Indians. Today people of Rajasthan, Tamil Nadu, Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Bihar, West Bengal, Kerala, Odisha, Jharkhand and Gujarat will get the facility of Vande Bharat Express trains. These new Vande Bharat Express trains depict the new energy of the country," PM Modi said.
PM Modi said that 25 Vande Bharat Express trains are already running, now nine more will be added to them.
"The popularity of Vande Bharat trains is constantly rising. Over 1,11,00,000 crore passengers have already travelled on them," he said.
Stressing the importance of railways in the lives of common citizens, the Prime Minister pointed out the neglect of this important sector in earlier times.
Elaborating on the efforts of the current government for the transformation of Indian Railways the Prime Minister informed about the increased budget as this year's budget for railway is eight times the rail budget of 2014. Similarly, work is going on for doubling, electrification and new routes, PM Modi said.
