Bharucha praises former railways minister’s work

QUETTA: Interim Minister for Railways Khursheed Bharucha has urged the people of Balochistan to acknowledge the services of elected representatives instead of opting for criticism.

“The work of former railways minister deserves praise,” said the minister while inaugurating the new bogies of Bolan Mail at the Pakistan Railways Office in Quetta on Monday.

Bharucha said, “The event is not being celebrated due to the Mastung tragedy.”

She said properties have been purchased to make Gwadar a part of the country’s railway network. Other railways installations would be constructed soon, she added.
