Amritsar, November 29

As the Kisan Mazdoor Sangharsh Committee (KMSC) continues to protest along Amritsar-Delhi railway track at Jandiala Guru, the Indian Railways has yet not resumed (to and fro) more trains from Amritsar railway station except two daily trains. The ‘Rail Roko Andolan’ entered its 68th day on Sunday.

The two trains were being diverted from Amritsar-Tarn Taran-Beas route.

The Indian Railways short terminated, originated and diverted many trains. The 02715 Nanded-Amritsar Express special train will be short terminated in New Delhi. Consequently, the 02716 Amritsar-Nanded JCO will short originate from New Delhi and remain partially cancelled between NewDelhi-Amritsar-NewDelhi on November 30.

The 02925 Bandra Terminus-Amritsar Express will be short terminated in Chandigarh. Consequently, the 02926 Amritsar-Bandra Terminus Express will short originate from Chandigarh and remain partially cancelled between Chandigarh- Amritsar-Chandigarh on November 30.

Many trains will be diverted. The 02903 Mumbai Central-Amritsar Express special will be diverted to run via Beas-Tarn Taran-Amritsar and the 02904 Amritsar-Mumbai Central Express will be diverted to run via Amritsar-Tarn Taran-Beas.

The 04650/74 Amritsar-Jaynagar Express special was today diverted to run via Amritsar-Tarn Taran-Beas.

Railway officials said normal rail traffic would be restored once the agitators along the tracks would be removed. They said it would be seen after the talks between the Centre and farmers.

Addressing the farmers at Jandiala Guru, Swainder Singh Chatala, said they were ready for prolonged agitation. He said the ongoing agitation would continue and they were mentally prepared for the long haul.
