New Delhi, October 29
The Railways on Thursday said train operations in Punjab remain suspended due to the ongoing agitation by farmers.
No train services had resumed, spokesperson for Northern Railways said on Thursday amid speculation that train operations had been restored in the agitation-hit state.
“Some papers have published that train services in Punjab have been resumed. It is clarified once again that this is nothing but false news and trains are not running as of now,” Deepak Kumar, Chief Public Relations Officer of Northern Railways said.
“These papers are quoting NR press release dated October 22 wherein goods trains services were resumed for one day and stopped because of uncertainty and safety of the train operations staff. This is for the information of all concerned,” Kumar said. PTI
