The Government has decided to shut down 120 trains suffering from losses.

Federal Railways minister Ghulam Ahmed Bilour said the present government is running seven trains whereas the past governments ran almost 113 trains for political reasons.

The railway administration does not have enough funds for maintaining and improving the railways.

A briefing will be given to the Prime Minister regarding the downsizing of the railways.
