Bengal Train News: अगर कोई भी यात्री ट्रेन से बांग्लादेश की राजधानी ढाका से पश्चिम बंगाल की राजधानी कोलकाता आना चाहता है तो उसे सिर्फ साढ़े तीन घंटे का वक्त लगेगा. ऐसा पद्मा सेतु रेल संपर्क परियोजना के पूरा होने के बाद संभव हो जाएगा. इसके साथ ही त्रिपुरा की राजधानी अगरतला से ढाका होते हुए कोलकाता जाने में केवल पांच से छह घंटे का वक्त लगेगा.

ऐसा दावा बांग्लादेश के रेल मंत्री मोहम्मद नूरुल इस्लाम सुजन ने किया है. उन्होंने बताया कि बांग्लादेश में पश्चिमांचल रेल लाइन ब्रॉड गेज है. जबकि,

पूर्वांचल मीटर गेज है. अब सभी को ब्रॉडगेज में तब्दील किया जा रहा है. इससे भारत के साथ रेल कनेक्टिविटी काफी हद तक बढ़ जाएगी. पद्मा नदी पर बन रहे रेलवे ब्रिज के बारे में मंत्री का कहना है कि पहले भारत-बांग्लादेश के बीच रेल का सफर 400 किलोमीटर लंबा था. इसमें से 280 किलोमीटर बांग्लादेश और भारत में 129 किलोमीटर की लाइन पड़ती थी. पद्मा रेल ब्रिज बन जाने के बाद ट्रेन के पैसेंजर्स को ढाका कैंट स्टेशन से जैसोर होते हुए महज 251 किलोमीटर का सफर ही तय करना पड़ेगा.

बांग्लादेश के रेल मंत्री के मुताबिक पद्मा रेल पुल के शुरू होने के बाद उनके देश की सीमा में 172 किलोमीटर और उसके बाद बेनापोल से कोलकाता तक महज 79 किलोमीटर का सफर करना होगा. इसमें तीन से साढ़े तीन घंटे का वक्त लगेगा. त्रिपुरा से सटी बांग्लादेश सीमा पर 11 किलोमीटर डबल गेज रेल लाइन का निर्माण जारी है. इसके लिए एशियन डेवलपमेंट बैंक समेत अन्य संस्थाओं ने लोन भी दिया है. उनके मुताबिक टेंगी से आगाउड़ा तक 97 किलोमीटर मीटर गेज लाइन है. इसे डबल गेज में बदलने के बाद त्रिपुरा के अगरतला स्टेशन तक की दूरी 136 किलोमीटर और ढाका-कोलकाता तक 251 किलोमीटर का सफर पांच से छह घंटे में पूरा होगा.

अगर भारत-बांग्लादेश के बीच रेल कनेक्टिविटी की बात करें तो दोनों देशों में रेलवे क्रॉस बॉर्डर हैं. इन सभी को चालू करने की योजना पर भी काम किया जा रहा है. बांग्लादेश भारत के अलावा पड़ोसी म्यांमार, थाईलैंड और मलेशिया तक रेलवे ट्रैक को पहुंचाने की दिशा में काम कर रहा है. वहीं, बांग्लादेश में पद्मा रेलवे ब्रिज के निर्माण के लिए 31 हजार करोड़ रुपए में कराया जा रहा है. ढाका से यशोर के बीच पद्मा नदी के ऊपर 40 हजार करोड़ से पुल बनाया जाएगा. मेन पद्मा रेल सेतु पर काम पूरा हो चुका है. इसे 26 मार्च 2022 से शुरू कर दिया जाएगा. दूसरे रेलवे ब्रिज का काम देर से शुरू होने की वजह से उसके 2024 तक पूरा होने की संभावना है.

Agartala, Jun 3 (UNI) With the request of Tripura government, Ministry of Railways has agreed to run Kishan rails from Agartala to Howrah and New Delhi to transport the summer fruits like jackfruit, pineapple and lemon along with other agriculture and horticulture crops to central part of the country.The officials here said that the ministry has accepted the proposal of the state to support the farmers who have produced summer fruits in commercial scale this year too, hoping to export the items abroad besides, metro cities of India like previous years. But the second wave of Covid-19 has badly hit the prospect for the second year in a row.In the first two years of BJP-IPFT government Tripura had emerged as a producer of the best quality pineapple and lemon in the country. A large quantity of the produces were sent to UK and Middle East besides, hoisting promotional seals and exhibition...

of horticulture items of Tripura in Kolkata, Delhi and Mumbai.As a result, area under cultivation of lemon and pineapple has been increased to over 2000 hectare and 2300 hectare respectively and production enhanced to more than 2500 MT of each. Meantime, Covid-19 hit the country last year during the peak time of harvesting and nationwide lockdown made an adverse effect on the farmers.However, the state government somehow managed to send a few consignment to outside the country and the rest of the fruits were procured by the urban development department for freejuice distribution of vitamin-C rich products among the urban dwellers under an innovative scheme – Immunity Booster Project. This year production was little less than the previous years but again the farmers lost the markets due to second wave of Covid-19.To retain the interest of the farmers in horticulture crops, especially the cultivation of seasonal fruits, the state government urged the centre to arrange Kishan rail for carrying the produce to mainland India, in which the Ministry of Railway agreed to. As per the schedule, the first Kishan train with the consignment from Agartala will leave for New Delhi on June 11 next followed by June 25 and July 9, 16 and 23 next.The Howrah bound Kishan train will leave from Agartala on June 16 and 30 next followed by July 7, 14, 21 and 28 next. The farmers will load their goods at different stations of Tripura and South Assam and transportation cost will be Rs 2025 per MT up to Howrah, Rs 882 per MT up to Guwahati and Rs 2815 per MT up to New Delhi.While greeting Prime Minister Narendra Modi, agriculture and farmers welfare minister of Tripura Pranajit Singharoy said, “With the help of APEDA only a week ago we sent the maiden consignment of jackfruit to UK. Recently, some private entrepreneurs sent pineapple to Delhi and Telangana. Now, our fruits will hit the national capital and Kolkata by Kishan rail and farmers will produce more in the coming years.”UNI BB BM
