Jalpaiguri, 30th January: The Kisan Rail has been inaugurated today at Jalpaiguri Town Station by Jalpaiguri MP Dr. Jayant Kumar Roy and railway officials.
It has been learned that the farmers had to spend a lot of money to transport agricultural products from Jalpaiguri to other states. As a result, they could not get a fair price for their produce. Hence, such an initiative has been taken.
According to the Railways, Kisan Rail has a total of 18 bogies. 24 tons of potatoes will be sent to each bogie. For now, the train will run once a week to Tripura. Later, if other states demand, similar initiatives will be taken.
