Jammu: In a relief to the passengers, the Vande Bharat Express operating from Katra and Delhi will also have halts at Udhampur and Kathua Railway Stations from December 30.
Union Minister Dr Jitendra Singh, who is also Member Parliament from Kathua-Udhampur-Doda Lok Sabha constituency, posted on X, “Heartening news for #Udhampur and #Kathua. Ever since the first #VandeBharat train started operating from #Katra and Delhi in 2019, there has been a consistent demand for its stoppage in Kathua and Udhampur as well.”
“Thanks, PM @ NarendraModi for responding to our request. The new Vande Bharat from Katra to Delhi starting December 30 will have a stop in Udhampur and Kathua also. This will not only come as a huge relief but also provide ease of travel, ease of business and overall ease of living,” Dr Singh posted.
