Fuel carrying train en route to Tripura, crosses Jatinga Lumpur


BY TC News Desk

Agartala, 11th May 2024:  After a nearly 15-day delay, relief is finally on its way to Tripura as a freight train carrying crucial fuel provisions is en route, having cleared the Jatinga Lumpur – New Harangajao stretch in Assam’s Dima Hasao District.

The recent derailment incident between Jatinga Lumpur and New Harangajao had exacerbated the fuel shortage in Tripura by disrupting goods trains. However, concerted restoration efforts are now in progress.

Sabyasachi Dey, the Chief Public Relations Officer of North Eastern Frontier Railway, confirmed the departure of 49 Bogie Tank wagons for petroleum products (BTPN) from Assam. These wagons, comprising 19 BTPN units of High-Speed Diesel (HSD) and 30 BTPN units of Motor Spirit (MS) or Petrol, have successfully traversed the challenging Jatinga Lumpur area.

“At 10:41 am today, the freight train, loaded with 49 wagons, crossed the Jatinga Lumpur – New Harangajao section of Assam’s Dima Hasao District. The train is now making its way towards Dharmanagar, Tripura,” stated the railway official.

In parallel, a representative from Tripura Food and Civil Supplies and Consumer Affairs department expressed optimism, anticipating the train’s arrival at the Dharmanagar depot by evening. This development is poised to alleviate the ongoing fuel crisis in the region.
