Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday flagged off Uttarakhand’s first semi-high speed Vande Bharat Express.

“Uttarakhand is getting its first Vande Bharat Express today from Dehradun to Delhi. This Express will reduce the travelling time of the people,” PM Modi said during the virtual flagging off ceremony.

The train, which is the 17th Vande Bharat Express to be flagged off in the country, will connect Dehradun with the national capital, New Delhi.

“India is being watched with great hope. The world wants to come to India to see India, and to understand the essence of India, in such a situation there are excellent opportunities for states like Uttarakhand,” said Modi. “Vande Bharat train is also going to help Uttarakhand in taking full advantage of this opportunity.”

Train operators for the Delhi-Dehradun Vande Bharat Express will commence on May 29. It will cover a distance of about 302 km in four hours and 45 minutes and operate six days a week, apart from Wednesday.
