Guwahati, June 6: Chief Minister Sarbanda Sonowal today held a meeting with North East Frontier Railway General Mager HK Jaggi and asked him to expeditiously undertake the double-tracking work to ensure facilitation of seamless train movement in the State.

A three-member team of NF Railway led by Jaggi called on Chief Minister Sonowal at the latter's office in Assam Secretariat and discussed with him on a host of issues ranging from double tracking to construction of railway termil at Aghthori near Amingaon. Sonowal enquired into the progress of double-tracking work on Guwahati-Lumding section and asked the GM to ensure its early completion.

Meanwhile, Jaggi apprised the Chief Minister that survey work of double tracking between Lumding-Dibrugarh section has already been undertaken and the project will be launched on a fast-track basis.
