Srinagar, Oct 8 : Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh will flag off the first train connecting Srinagar to central Kashmir during his two-day visit to Jammu and Kashmir on Saturday.

According to official sources, Dr. Singh will flag off the first train from Nowgam to Budgam.

Dr. Singh will board the Diesel Multiple Unit (DMU) train from Nowgam station as a symbolic gesture.

The inauguration of this train service was 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.

His visit coincides with the visit of a business delegation from Pakistan-occupied Kashmir, who will be in the state from tomorrow for a week to tie up with businessmen from Kashmir as well as in Jammu.

During his visit, Dr Singh will also inaugurate the prestigious 450 MW Baglihar Power project site in Ramban District.
