Senate chairman takes train to Lahore

Senate chairman takes train to Lahore

LAHORE: Senate Chairman Sadiq Sanjrani opted to travel to Lahore on a train in his first trip to the city since he took the post last month, reported Geo TV.

Sanjrani departed from the federal capital in Rail Car on Sunday morning and reached Lahore after a few hours. While most political leaders travel to different cities in an aeroplane, Sanjrani set a different precedent in an effort to promote travel by train. Upon reaching Lahore, Sanjrani received a warm welcome by Chief Executive Officer Railways Javed Anwar and other members of the department.

While speaking to the media on the occasion, Sanjrani told journalists that he was in Lahore to pay a visit to the tomb of Allama Iqbal. The Senate chairman will visit Allama Iqbal’s tomb and Data Darbar on Monday morning. Previously, President Mamnoon Hussain had travelled from Lahore to Rawalpindi in Subak Kharam Express on July 20, 2017. The president remarked that his trip aimed to promote rail travel among people for being a comparatively safe and comfortable mode of transportation.
