LAHORE, (SANA): Federal Minister for Railways Khawaja Saad Rafique has rejected the summary for handing over eight trains to a sub-department of Pakistan Railways ‘PRACS’.


While rejecting the summary for handing over the eight trains to PRACS, Khawaja Saad Rafique said that these are giving profit to Railway and their working would be more improved.


These trains include Rawal Express, Tezgam and Night Coach. Railway authorities decided to hand over these trains to PRACS.


Railway Minister, rejecting the summary for handing over the trains to PRACS, said that these routes are giving profit to Railway and Railway itself should operate these routes.


Saad Rafique directed the Railway authorities to improve the working of these trains. He said that it would enhance Railway income and would help giving better facilities of journey to the people.


It is pertinent to mention here that Pakistan Railway Advisory and Consultancy Services (PRACS) was formed a sub-department in Pakistan Railways with the objective to give advisory services to the railways for bringing improvement, but instead of providing any advisory services towards the betterment of Pakistan Railways, it started gaining its own profit.


Unfortunately, Pakistan railways kept on declining since the setting-up this sub-department in the Railways, but no sincere efforts have been made to get rid the Railway of this white elephant.


Pakistan railways can earn manifold more than the PRACS is giving to the Railway if the railway buildings under occupation of the PRACS are taken from the PRACS administration and are given on rent.


It is hoped that the incumbent government would take positive steps towards improving the institutions in the country and Khawaja Saad Rafique is considered the most sincere leader of the PML-N and he is likely to bring drastic changes in railways to make it one of the profitable institution of the country as it was in the past.
