Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has said the government has a plan to launch electric train after inauguration of metro rail in Dhaka.
The premier came up with such a plan at the inaugural ceremony of a intercity train ‘Panchagarh Express’ on Dhaka-Panchagarh route on Saturday.Sheikh Hasina said the trains of Bangladesh are still diesel engines. The use of first-ever electric train will begin with the introduction of Dhaka metro rail. Later, the long distance electric train will begin in the country, she said.
She said, “We are going to introduce metro rail. Besides, we will launch environment-friendly electric trains. And we are working for that purpose.”
Mentionable, the developed countries of the world are also using electric trains as oil-driven engines are creating environment pollution heavily.
