Flights, trains resume
Flight operations and railway services resumed in Guwahati on Tuesday, in a major relief to hundreds of stranded passengers, as the city limped back to normality after days of violent protests over the citizenship law.
Flights to and from Dibrugarh airport are operating according to schedule, officials said.
“Trains, including some Intercity services, resumed services as law and order gradually improved in the state,” Northeast Frontier Railway (NFR) spokesperson Subhanan Chanda said.
Services of other trains will gradually resume, he added.
“The trains which are running again include Manas Rhino passenger, which connects New Bongaigaon with Guwahati, and benefits office-goers,” the spokesperson said.
Local, passenger and Intercity trains running on Tuesday are the Down Dimapur-Guwahati Nagaland Express, Alipurduar Jn-Siliguri Intercity Express, Guwahati-New Bongaigaon passenger, Guwahati-Goalpara-New Bongaigaon train.
The Up Guwahati-Jorhat Town Janshatabdi Express, Dekargaon-Kamakhya Express, Alipurduar Jn-Lumding Intercity Express, Guwahati-Ledo Intercity Express, Guwahati-Dibrugarh Intercity Express, Rangiya-Murkongselek passenger, New Bongaigaon-Goalpara-Guwahati are also operating.
However, all trains from the Northeast to Calcutta remain cancelled in view of the law-and-order situation in Bengal, the officials said.
Flight operations are normal at the two airports in the state, an official said, adding that a Calcutta-bound Indigo flight was the only flight to be cancelled.
