Srinagar, Oct 11 : Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh today flagged off the first train connecting Srinagar with central parts of Kashmir Valley.

The train will run on the Anantnag-Srinagar-Rajwansher rail route.

As a symbolic gesture, the PM boarded the Diesel Multiple Unit (DMU) train from Nowgam station.

The inauguration of the train service is a part of the plan to connect Baramulla to Qazigund. However, connecting the Kashmir Valley with the rest of the country still remains a distant dream.

The commercial use of the train will take some time to start, said sources.
