I humbly appeal to worthy CM Punjab not to take the Orange Train project as one of personal prestige and concentrate on essentials for survival of people in whole Punjab. Whatever built may remain as it is, and can be taken up another day when possible.

Punjab cannot afford a foreign funded (loan) and engineered project worth Rs. 160 billion with complex maintenance for one city route at this stage. This project can be easily disrupted by one damaged pillar. Ground traffic may is preferred at present.
