Bathinda, August 10

Union Minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal today urged Railways Minister Piyush Goyal to start a dedicated "kisan rail" with refrigerated bogies from Abohar to Bangalore and Abohar to Kolkata during the harvest season between December and March to benefit growers of Punjab, Rajasthan and Haryana.

She said due to the highly perishable nature of the fruit only 35 to 40 per cent of the harvest reached the end consumers. "The remaining gets wasted due to high temperature during road transport," she added. — TNS
