LAHORE Delay in trains schedule is continuing at major railway stations as the PR management failed to streamline the timings of the trains at major routes despite the warning of the federal cabinets committee on restructuring (CCoR) of public enterprises. Heavy rains coupled with officials lack of interest towards realising the passengers problems caused hours delay in the departure and arrival of trains at Lahore Railways Station on Monday. The sources concerned said the up and down trains at Quetta, Peshawar and Karachi stations were also late for four to ten hours. Four days back, the CCoR of public sector enterprises while approving Rs10 billion package for the ailing utility had warned the Railways authorities to ensure in-time arrival and departure of trains during the holy month of Ramzan. However, the sources said there are no chances of improvement in the situation and delay in trains operations is continuing across the country. In Lahore, heavy rain caused hours-long delay in trains departure and arrival and passengers and their families had to face severe difficulties in this regard. As per sources, Karachi Night Coach, Karakarom Express, Allama Iqbal Express 9 up and 10 Down, Lasani Express, Khyber Mail, Queta Express, 7up Express, Karachi Night Coach and Awami Express were hours behind the schedule. Huge rush was seen at the station and passengers protested against the situation. According to reports, the up and down trains at Quetta station were also late and hapless passengers have no option but to keep waiting on the crowded platforms for hours with little necessary facilities available at the station. As per sources, Bolan Mail from Karachi, Jaffar Express from Rawalpindi and Quetta Express from Peshawar were late about seven to eight hours while the situation was not different at Karachi and Peshawar stations.
