Great news for revival of Pakistan railways, railway minister said rafique is quite hard working and doing great work, big salute to him.
It is also interesting to know that Pakistan is buying the same GE tier 4 locomotives which India has selected for its Western dfc, so that in future they can buy spare parts from us( if they want)instead of importing from America.. Really a smart move from pml government.
