CAPT AMARINDER HAILS KISAN UNIONS’ DECISION TO LIFT BLOCKADE ON GOODS TRAINS


Chandigarh, (Gurpreet) : Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh has welcomed the Kisan Unions’ decision to allow movement of goods trains, saying it was in the interest of the state’s economy and its revival.

          Thanking the farmer unions for heeding his appeal, the Chief Minister said the farmers had shown their love and concern for the people of Punjab with this move, as it will allow the state to get its much-needed coal supplies. He pointed out that the people of Punjab had been facing a total power shutdown as a result of coal shortage due to the blockade, and the decision of the unions had come as a major relief to them.
