Earlier it has been revealed that whopping 79 train-related accidents have taken place across the country since Sheikh Rasheed Ahmed took charge as Federal Minister for Railways under the regime of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI). Who is the responsible for such massive loss of human lives and that of the department damages?
During the period between August 2018 till July 2019, 79 incidents of either a train crashing into another passenger or freight train, or derailing of several bogies have been reported.
