The special train for women passengers on the Delhi-Panipat section would be restarted soon, said Haryana Women and Child Development Minister Kavita Jain.

The minister said that the move to restart the train is after observing a large number of women commute between Delhi and Panipat daily. The train is likely to be restarted within the next three to four days.

“The train service was stopped due to some difficulties which has caused a lot of resentment among women passengers who faced commuting problems,” Jain said.

The minister sought the intervention of Union Railways Minister Piyush Goyal and suggested an alternative to start the special train between Sonepat and Delhi till the time the technical reasons for further delay in the Delhi-Panipat train are resolved.
