Minister for Railways congratulated PM on assuming the office of Prime Minister and expressed his best wishes for him to overcome multifaceted challenges facing the country at present. The Minister for Railways apprised the Prime Minister that two rails carrying 99 oil tankers of furnace oil have reached Lalpir, main storage depot of PSO, from Karachi port and other five rails carrying 200 oil tankers are on their way.
