Passengers say they have been struggling in the cold amid train delays

Delays in the arrival of trains led to an increase in the misery of the passengers as they waited at the New Delhi railway station for hours.

"The train is delayed by 4 hours. We are struggling in this cold. There is no one to listen to the problems. The government should take some action on this," a passenger said.

Another passenger travelling to Bihar said that the arrival of his train was delayed by 2 hours as he struggled to get the rescheduled timing of the train.
"I am sitting at the station for 2 hours. There is no information about the train. No one is telling about the schedule of the train," he said.
