Amid Kisan protests, and violence surrounding the Delhi borders with respect to farmers protesting against the three laws, Punjab Mail, which was carrying about 1000 farmers skipped the Delhi station to which the Indian railway officials claimed it to be due to operational constraints for diverting the train to Rewari while on its way to Mumbai.
As per the nether Railway spokesperson, Deepak Kumar said that “There were operational constraints, that’s why the train had to be diverted,” Though he did not divulge into specifics the reason for the train to be diverted and skip the Delhi station remains due to farmers which were on board and can cause issues at the national capital of the country- Delhi. While the other railway personnel said that there was a “fault with the overhead equipment between Rohtak and Shakurbasti, one of the stations in Delhi”
