Karachi: Railway Workers Union Chairman Manzoor Ahmed Razi has demanded of the Pakistan Railway minister to order running of local trains in Karachi on Landhi and Malir Cantt routes on urgent basis.
He said complete railway infrastructure is present on Landhi and Malir Cantt routes and local trains could be run on them without any problem, but still the Pakistan Railway bosses are not ready to run local trains in Karachi.
He asked to remove encroachments on the route of Karachi Circular Railway (KCR) on urgent basis. He regretted that the concerned authorities were reluctant to remove encroachments from the KCR loop.
He also demanded raising salaries and allowances of PR workers, filling 30,000 vacant posts of workers. He also requested the PR bosses to run trains on closed routes in Sindh province including Karachi-Badin, Karachi-Mirpurkhas, Karachi-Dadu and other loop lines.[related_post themes="text" id="317205"]
