Station inaugurated, express train flagged off

Bhawanipatna: The railway station at Bhawanipatna in Sambalpur division of East Coast Railways was inaugurated and 18438 Bhawanipatna-Rayagada- Bhubaneswar Link Express train was flagged off from here on Saturday.

The daily express train, flagged off by Lok Sabha member and former minister of state for Railways Bhakta Charan Das, will link Raygada, Vijayanagaram and Berhampur to reach Bhubaneswar.

He requested railway officials to take steps for early completion of Lanjigarh-Junagarh rail line from Bhawanipatna to Junagarh. Implementation of rail wagon factory project would also give Kalahandi a special place in rail map, Das said.
