Agartala-Khongsang rail link a tribute to Indian Army Terriers

Flagging-off of the Agartala-Khongsang Jan Shatabdi Express by President Droupadi Murmu on Thursday is a tribute to the 30-odd Indian Army Terriers killed in a landslide in Manipur’s Tupul in June this year, the Army believes. The Agartala-Khongsang stretch may be a mere 54-km stretch but it is a huge step towards connecting India’s northeastern states with the rest of the country. This line will extend till Imphal, the capital of Manipur. It took India 75 years after Independence to get Manipur into the country’s railway map.
