Member of Parliament Ravneet Singh Bittu welcomed Ferozepur-Chandigarh train that was announced in the railway budget. Bittu had written a letter to the railway minister stating that one of the demands of the region was fulfilled and it would benefit city residents, as they could have better connectivity to Chandigarh.
Thanking the railway minister Sadanand Gowda, Bittu said this train was much needed. He said the train should be halted at Jagraon station and for this he would meet the railway minister soon.
He said there was a need of at least four passenger trains to connect Ludhiana city with Chandigarh, thus, he would also take up this issue with railway minister so that common people could commute to the state capital in less fare.
Though, he condemned the government to announce Panj Takht Express their initiative. He said this train was announced by UPA government already and now NDA government wanted to misguide the people by taking advantage of their emotions.
