Addressing a virtual press conference in New Delhi yesterday, Mr Yadav said, Ministry of Railways conducted meetings with the general managers of zones and instructed them to speak with local administrations and review the status of coronavirus. He said, they have been asked to give a report after which the number of trains to be introduced during the holiday season will be decided. Mr Yadav said as of now it is estimated that around 200 trains will be run.
