Pakistan Shut Down All Bus Services With India After Samjhauta Express

Pakistan Shut Down All Bus Services With India After Samjhauta Express: Pakistan has been troubled since Article 370 (Jammu and Kashmir) was removed from Jammu and Kashmir. The Imran Khan government has stopped all bus services plying between India (India) and Pakistan (Pakistan). After stopping Lahore-Delhi bus service on Friday, Pakistan has also stopped Lahore-Amritsar and Nankana Sahib-Amritsar bus service on Saturday. Earlier, Pakistan had also banned the Samjhauta Express.

After the removal of article-370 in Jammu and Kashmir Pakistan is constantly trying to pressure India. Pakistan has ended all business relations with India and has also announced to continuously reduce diplomatic relations. The federal cabinet, led by Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan, approved the decision taken by the National Security Committee and the joint session of Parliament. Which includes the decision to postpone business relations with India.

Pakistan has also stopped Samjhauta Express and Thar Express earlier. The Samjhauta Express launched in 1976 runs from Delhi to Attari Border in India and then from Wagah to Lahore in Pakistan. The Thar Express is a popular train in the border areas of Rajasthan. It runs every Friday between Kothi Bhagat station in Jodhpur to Karachi in Pakistan. A large number of passengers come and go from this train.

All celebrities had inaugurated Delhi-Lahore bus service

On 19 February 1999, this bus journey was started for common citizens. Former Prime Minister of India Atal Bihari Vajpayee went to Pakistan in the inaugural visit of this bus. Many Indian celebrities also went to Pakistan with him. The names of Dev Anand, Satish Gujral, Javed Akhtar, Kuldeep Nayar, Kapil Dev, Shatrughan Sinha and Mallika Sarabhai are prominent among them.

This bus service was not stopped even during the Kargil war

It is a special thing that in 1999, when there was a fight between India and Pakistan in Kargil, this bus journey was not stopped. However, two years later, on 13 December 2001, when the Indian Parliament was attacked, it was canceled. It remained closed until 2003. Later, it started running again after the improvement in Indo-Pak relations.
