The Railways today said it had got an assurance from the Punjab Government that the blockade of rail tracks by agitators in the state would removed by Friday morning.

Once done, trains services would resume, the Railways said, adding it was fully prepared for it.

Earlier, Union Railways Minister Piyush Goyal promised a BJP delegation from Punjab that the Centre was ready to resume railway services in the state if Chief Minister Amarinder Singh could assure that no damage to railway property and staff would be done by the protesting farmers. The delegation of 22 members included national BJP general secretary Tarun Chugh and state president of party unit Ashwani Sharma.
