Delhi-Katra Vande Bharat train to resume soon: Union minister Jitendra Singh

Srinagar: Union minister Jitendra Singh on Thursday said the Vande Bharat train from Delhi to katra, home to Shri Mata Vaishno Devi shrine, would resume soon.

He said the matter of resumption of train to Katra in Jammu and Kashmir ahead of Navratri festival was discussed with Railway Minister Piyush Goyal.

“Discussed with Railway Minister Sh @PiyushGoyal. #VandeBharatExpress train from Delhi to #KatraVaishnoDevi to resume soon. This should be a reassuring piece of information for pilgrims from across the country planning a visit to Holy shrine during #Navratri festival,” Singh tweeted.

Train services in the country, which were halted in late March due to coronavirus-induced lockdown, are being resumed in a graded manner. (KINS)
