Farmers Relent, Railway Services to Re-instate in Punjab

The Railways said on Saturday that it had received information from the Punjab government about the tracks being vacated for resuming operations of freight trains and passenger trains, so train services would soon be restored in the state. Hours before this, farmers protesting against the agricultural laws of the center had agreed to resume operations of train services.

Sources indicated that freight trains and passenger trains would resume operations from Tuesday. The Railway Ministry tweeted, “Railways have received information from the Punjab government to resume operations of goods trains and passenger trains. It has also been told that the tracks are now empty for the trains to operate.

Earlier, farmer organizations protesting against the Centre’s agricultural laws had decided to lift the blockade for passenger trains for 15 days from Monday. However, he had said that if the government failed to address their issues, they would block it again. Train services have been suspended in Punjab since September 24 when farmers started the Rail Roko movement against agricultural laws.
