Railway Minister also announced during his speech that another VVIP train “Sir Syed Express” from Karachi to Lahore will follow “Jinnah Express” in the coming month. The contract of “Sir Syed Express” has been given to a Five Star hotel chain which will raise the standard big time.
He further added that last governments wasted Rs. 2 billion dollars on the renovation of different railway stations that did not even earn Rs. 6,000 and vowed to put an end to corruption within the next five years.
