Train services: Congress MPs to meet Shah

Share This

Chandigarh, November 6

After an unproductive meeting with Railways Minister Piyush Goyal over the issue of resuming the rail operations in the state, the Congress MPs will now seek intervention of Home Minister Amit Shah to assure the farmers that the Centre would continue with the MSP.

Sources in the government said apart from the issue of the MSP, the MPs would take up the issue of resuming the train operations, continuing with the rural development fund and initiating discussion with representatives of the farmers at an appropriate political level.

A senior party leader said assurance at the level of Prime Minister or the Home Minister could help assuage the farmers.

The state government also wants to point out that it has been persuading the farmers to lift the rail dharnas and it was not politically sponsored, the leader said. The MPs are also likely to point out that there was a strong possibility that farmers' agitation was linked with terrorist outfits. — TNS
