ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Minister for Railways Sheikh Rasheed has said that he will not vote for amendment in National Accountability Bureau (NAB) law, adding that many big decisions will be made till July 31. Addressing a news conference in Rawalpindi today, the minister said that the final decision regarding resuming the operation of Pakistan Railways will be taken after a meeting with Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan on Tuesday. He assured that the Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) will be fully practiced in the train operations. He said the railways authorities are fully prepared to operate the trains. Sheikh Rasheed Ahmed stressed that the resumption of Pakistan Railways operation is important to facilitate the passengers on the eve of Eidul Fitr. He pledged that if the train operation was not restored, we will hand back 240 million rupees of advance booking to the passengers. “Train services can only be resumed after the opening of Karachi track. If the decision to resume train operations is not made by Tuesday, it will not be possible for the Pakistan Railways to run the operations,” he maintained. “Payments will be refunded in case we won’t get permission to restart train operation,” the minister assured, announcing that ticket prices will also be reduced by 50-60 per cent once trains resume operations.
