Written by: Staff

Srinagar, July 17: Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad has said the day was not far away when a train would chug across the Line of Control (LoC) to increase people-to-people contact and foment trade ties with Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK).

Mr Azad was speaking at the Baramulla railway station after he along with Union Minister of State for Railways R Velu made an in-depth inspection of the progress of work on the prestigious 292-km Udhampur-Qazigund-Baramula rail line project yesterday.

The Chief Minister said he foresaw the day when the rail line would be extended to Muzaffarabad, the capital of PoK, to make movement of people and goods much easier across the LoC.

He said the survey for the railway project from Baramulla to Kupwara had been completed and the approval was awaited.
