Federal Minister for Railway Ghulam Ahmed Bilour has threatened to halt train service in Punjab if attacks on train were not stopped.

Talking to media men during visit to Railway carriage factory here on Thursday, he said, attacks on trains in some areas of Punjab was a conspiracy against Punjab Government.

Chief Minister Punjab Mian Shahbaz Sharif, Federal Minister for Water and Power Raja Pervez Ashraf and Federal Minister for Interior Rehman Malik should compensate Pakistan railway over loss to trains, he demanded.

It seems that the attacks on train in Punjab were a conspiracy against Punjab because such type of incidents was not reported in Sindh, Balochistan and NWFP, he said.

Replying to another question, the minister said, Pakistan railway should not be privatized because due to this more than 90,000 families are earning their livelihood.

Earlier, he made surprise visit of Railway carriage factory and expressed annoyance over absence of high level officers including MD Railway.

After reviewing the work of workers in carriage factory, he announced Rs. 2, 000 for them and the workers would get this bonus along with salaries next month.
