New Delhi, Dec 12 Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Thursday met Railways Minister Piyush Goyal in Parliament and requested to reconsider the cancellation of trains for Mukhyamantri Tirth Yatra Yojana (MMTY) of the Delhi Government.
'The Railway Minister assured me that the trains for Tirth Yatra Yojana will be re-allotted as early as possible,' said the Deputy CM, who was accompanied by Sanjay Singh, Rajya Sabha MP.
On Wednesday, Mr Sisodia had announced Delhi government's decision to temporarily suspend the trips of Tirth Yatra Yojana upon the intimation from IRCTC informing the cancellation of trains for the scheme due to unavailability of rakes. IRCTC’s decision affected more than 30000 elderly people whose pilgrimage trips were scheduled from December 10 onwards to destinations like Rameshwaram, Amritsar, Tirupati, and Vaishno Devi. (UNI)
