Weeks ahead of the Durga Puja celebrations in West Bengal, the Union Minister of Railways Piyush Goyal on Sunday (October 4, 2020) gave a gift to Kolkata by inaugurating the Phoolbagan metro station on the East-West metro. The Minister also flagged off the first train from the newly inaugurated station through a video link. 

Goyal congratulated everyone for taking extra initiative to complete the work in the midst of COVID-19 pandemic and expressed that this extension of services from the Salt Lake Stadium to Phoolbagan (a stretch of more 1.5 km) will be a great help for the commuters, more so because of its proximity to Sealdah station.  He termed this as a gift for Durga Puja and said that the metro provides the safest, cleanest and fastest transportation system in Kolkata.
