Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) president Sukhbir Singh Badal said here today the suspension of goods trains' movement in the state could lead to "an economic blockade of the sensitive border state" and shatter its already staggering economy.

'Move will hurt already sagging economy'

The suspension of goods train services could create an economic blockade of the state, which is already suffering due to fund crunch, and destroy its trade and industry.


He said the Central Government's approach smacked of "needless and ominous confrontation which would serve no one's interest".

He urged the Government of India to immediately resume normal goods train services in the state.

"The decision to further suspend the goods trains in Punjab would completely devastate the entire business, trade and industry, apart from agriculture here. The decision needs to be reversed immediately. Do not punish the patriotic and peace-loving people of Punjab for demanding their democratic rights," said the SAD president in a statement here.
