I am a frequent traveler between Lahore and Rawalpindi for the last twenty five years. My family and I have always preferred and enjoyed travelling in the Lower AC class because of its comfortable and spacious seating arrangement but also because it provides one a feeling of a privileged class passenger worth its fare. But ever since Kh. Saad Rafique has taken over, the scenario of comfort and sense of enjoyment, especially with the family has changed.

I don’t know what happened to those comfortable coaches, because they have been replaced by benches all around and berths one over the other, leaving any passage to move, which makes the atmosphere suffocating, with no privacy for families. The washrooms are also dilapidated. I request the worthy Minister Railways to come up to the rescue of the suffering passengers who pay high fare for a comfortable journey.
