A new train to link Anandpur Sahib with Amritsar would be introduced next month, Anandpur Sahib MP Prem Singh Chandumajra said after a meeting with railway minister Suresh Prabhu.

He said the railway minister had assured him that the new train would be introduced keeping in view the likely arrival of thousands of devotees to Anandpur Sahib to participate in the 350th foundation day celebrations of the town.

He said Prabhu would make the announcement regarding the new train during his visit to Amritsar next month.

Chandumajra said the new train would run via Morinda, adding that its introduction would benefit devotees keen to pay obeisance at Takht Keshgarh Sahib and Akal Takht.

He also raised the demand of providing a new rail link between Anandpur Sahib and Garhshankar for further linking the town with Amritsar. He also demanded the Rahon-Samrala and SAS Nagar-Rajpura rail link from the minister.
