Women-only train to be restarted on Delhi-Panipat section
Chandigarh, April 5 (IANS) A special train for women passengers on the Delhi to Panipat section would be restarted soon, a Haryana minister said on Thursday.
Haryana Women and Child Development Minister Kavita Jain said a large number of women commute between Delhi and Panipat daily.
“The train service was stopped due to some difficulties which has caused a lot of resentment among women passengers who faced commuting problems,” Jain said.
The minister sought the intervention of Union Railways Minister Piyush Goyal and suggested an alternative to start the special train between Sonepat and Delhi till the time the technical reasons for further delay in the Delhi-Panipat train are resolved, a spokesman said here.
Jain said the service will be restarted within the next three to four days.
Panipat is around 90 km from New Delhi.
