In his address, PM Modi said that today was the day to give a new identity to the railways. The largest modern railway project since independence has landed. Echoes of new India have been heard in this new freight train.

The entire freight and center technology was developed by the people here in India. He said that today India is becoming a major economic power in the world. In the last six years, India has been working on the front of modern connectivity.

Modi said that the country's agricultural markets were dependent on the transportation of goods, the goods from one place had to be transported to another place. As the population grew, so did the load, and here our freight trains were running on the same track. Due to which both the trains were late. Late freight trains increase the cost but now with the creation of special tracks, the disaster will be over.
