Railway Board Chairman V.K. Yadav said in a press conference that states cannot ‘choose by their choice’. No one can dictate which train will run on the tracks or which is not, it is not practical.

Yadav said, “Similar statements have come from the protesters and the state government. The tracks have been emptied for goods trains only. Indian Railways cannot operate in this manner. If the tracks are empty then they are empty for both goods and passenger trains. We request them to leave the operations of the trains on Indian Railways. “The state government and Indian Railways officials are deliberating to restore the train service in the state.

The state government said in a statement on Friday night that the railway tracks have been emptied for train operation. But Indian Railways claim that this statement of the state government is a ‘shawl’ with those who are having difficulty in stopping the operation of trains during the festive season.

Rejecting the protesters’ demand, Yadav said, “We cannot run trains in this environment where the protesters say that we can run only some kind of trains.” At the same time, we have not received any assurance from the state government for the safety of those trains. The state government is also saying what the protestors are saying. “
