  • I am refering to my journey from Karachi to Lahore on 25 Aug 2017 in Green line coach #2 of Cabin A. As train moved, we’d come to know that whole our cabin as well as whole coach #2 & 3 were full of bed bugs. The numbers were count less and every passenger condition was miserable.
    You can’t imagine our condition, if u’ve to spend next 17 hours in that cabin with those things. I haven’t paid to travel like that.
    Further, we’d approached Train manager and complain about it but he said i had complained about it too. Meanwhile he arranged & sprayed anti bug spray of i think least quality and said rest i can do nothing. Our whole journey went like that.
    That is the dilemma of every good initiative/ service in Pakistan. With the passage of time, instead of making service better it converts into more pathetic state.
    I’ve recorded my complain manually as well as on official page/ e mail of Pak rail to pay special attention to cleanliness of trains on immediate basis for betterment of passengers.
