Start rail line linking Chandigarh, Ludhiana: Jain

Chandigarh Newsline
CHANDIGARH, JUNE 22: FORMER MP Satya Pal Jain today strongly criticised the Railway Ministry for "not putting to use the newly-constructed Ludhiana-Chandigarh railway line, which is ready since April 1, as it is not finding suitable VIP for its inauguration."
Jain, while addressing a press conference, said if the railway line was not put to use immediately, the BJP would start agitation and expose "the callous and indifferent attitude of the government towards this project."
He said the party would hold a black flag protest demonstration on the track, starting from Chandigarh Railway Station on July 1.
Jain said the residents have been demanding the construction of railway bridge near Modern Housing Complex, near Manimajra, and Vikas Nagar, Mauli Jagran, to avoid traffic congestion at the time of passing of trains, but nothing has been done to date. He said the quality of food and other services on Shatabadi had gone down, but no action has been taken.
