“It is pertinent to mention here that the ‘Shatabdi’ train has been started from last year from Moga to Delhi via Ludhiana.

I have been pursuing the issue for the past five years. Besides approaching a number of Railway officials concerned, I have also approached the Union Minister, Pawan Kumar Bansal and Mamta Banerji,” Jain said while talking to Jalandhar Tribune.
