The Railway Minister said that work has been undertaken to repair 100 old railway coaches. Meanwhile, 40 locomotives are being brought from the United States. Of these, 16 have reached the country, the remaining 24 are on the way.

“We cannot operate a large number of trains for a single line,” he said. In case of train coming and going, one train has to pass another train. We have such problems due to single line.

He added that in the past, the railways were turned into a useless company. But the present government has taken short, medium and long term plans to improve the railways. According to him, the work is going on. The present government has issued several recruitment notices to meet the shortage of railway manpower. It is hoped that Bangladesh Railway will get rid of the manpower crisis in a few days.
