J&K | New Vistadome Rail Coach Connects Budgam-Banihal | Offers Tourists Modern Travel Experience I am grateful to the Honourable Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi and Rail Minister Ashwini Vaishnav and express gratitude from my heart, said the Lieutenant Governor of Jammu & Kashmir, Shri Manoj Sinha. The Prime Minister has transformed the country’s Amrit Kal into the golden period of Jammu and Kashmir, LG said. Due to this vision, the country is dedicated with full commitment to the development of Jammu and Kashmir. The facilities which were earlier available in other countries will now be available to the citizens of Jammu and Kashmir also, LG said. Jammu Kashmir is moving ahead with the resolution “Vikas Bhi Virasat Bhi’. Today will definitely be remembered in that journey. Vistadome Coach on Banihal-Budgam journey is truly a quantum leap. This state-of-the-art facility symbolises the new aspirations of the people of changing Jammu and Kashmir. And mainly, I would like to congratulate all the citizens of Jammu and Kashmir and the tourists coming from other parts of the country for this modern travel experience. Tourism of Kashmir Valley will get a new boost from the specially designed Vistadome coach running on the Budgam-Banihal track, LG said. And new employment opportunities will be available at Budgam, Srinagar, Awantipora, Anantnag, Qazigund and Banihal stations. The doors to possibilities of prosperity will open. The luxurious air-conditioned coach of the Vistadome, with its wide glass-paned windows, provide added convenience for those looking for entertainment, with rotating seats, as well as a meal of their choice, all these facilities are available. Now travelers will be able to enjoy mountains, greenery, valleys and snow all together. People coming from all over the country will get an opportunity to see the Kashmir Valley in a new form, LG said. Jammu and Kashmir will be connected to Kanyakumari by rail in this financial year itself. I think we’ll all have a good time travelling and due to this the economy of Jammu and Kashmir will also flourish. I hope that today’s launch of the Vistadome coach will make the dreams of the people of J&K fly high and give a new power to the whole of Jammu and Kashmir.
