In a bid to strengthen India’s position, Prime Minister Narendra Modi flagged off two trains - AC express between Naharlagun and New Delhi and an Inter-City express between Naharlagun and Guwahati - in Itanagar on Friday.
The move will also send a strong message to China, who has been claiming that Arunachal Pradesh is its integral part.
Besides, inaugurating the festival of Arunachal 2015, he will also inaugurate a water supply scheme for Itanagar and lay the foundation stone for a 132 KV transmission line.
Modi will also visit Jharkhand on Friday. He will in the day inaugurate a new railway line from Hazaribagh to Kodarma in Jharkhand. The function will be held at Hazaribagh.
