Samjhauta Agreement

There is now a train from Delhi to Attari, where all passengers are on fire for customs and immigration. This train has no commercial stops between Delhi and Attari. It is falsely called Samjhauta Express and is officially known as the Delhi-Attari or Attari-Delhi Express. The Samjhauta Express runs from Attari to Lahore, although passengers are screened at Wagah, the first station on the Pakistani side. Rail traffic was established by an agreement between Indian Railways (IR) and Pakistan Railways (PR) to alternately use an Indian rake and a Pakistani rake and a locomotive for the train, six months at the end. The Tashkent Declaration was a peace agreement between India and Pakistan, signed on 10 January 1966, which resolved the 1965 Indo-Pakistan war. Peace was achieved on 23 September by the intervention of the external powers that pushed the two nations to the truce, lest the conflict intensify and attract other powers. [1] [2] The Samjhauta Express (transl. Friendship Express) is a twice-travelling train (Thursday and Monday) that runs between Delhi and Attari in India and Lahore in Pakistan.

The word Samjhauta means Hindi and Urdu „agreement,“ „agreement“ and „compromise.“ The Samjhauta Express, named after the Hindi word for „agreement,“ consists of six sleepy coaches and a 3-level AC coach. On the Indian side, the train runs from Delhi to Attari and from Lahore to Wagah on the Pakistani side. BJP said today that there was no role for third parties, including hurriyat conference, in talks between India and Pakistan in accordance with the De Simla agreement. Samjhauta Express is also known as the Friendship Express. It`s a twice-train. The word Samjhauta means „agreement,“ „agreement“ and „compromise“ in Hindi and Urdu. Until the reopening of the Thar Express, it was the only rail link between the two countries. The train was launched on 22 July 1976 as a result of the Shimla Agreement and travelled between Amritsar and Lahore, at a distance of approximately 52 km.

After riots in Punjab in the late 1980s, for security reasons Indian Railways decided to end service at Attari, where customs services and immigration take place. On April 14, 2000, an agreement between Indian Railways and Pakistan Railways (PR) revised the line to nearly three kilometres. The agreement was criticized in India because it contained no war pact or renouncement of guerrilla warfare in Kashmir. After the signing of the agreement, Indian Prime Minister Lal Bahadur Shastri mysteriously died in Tashkent. [3] Shasti`s sudden death led to persistent conspiracy theories that he was poisoned. [7] The Indian government refused to downgrade a report on his death claiming that it could harm foreign relations, cause disruption in the country and a violation of parliamentary privileges. [7] In accordance with Tashkent`s statement, discussions took place at ministerial level on 1 and 2 March 1966. Despite the fact that these talks were unproductive, diplomatic exchanges continued in the spring and summer. The results of these discussions were not obtained due to differences of opinion on the Kashmir issue.
