“It is a fairly good budget, but I have a doubt that Indian Railways may not able to achieve all targets as our network is extremely big. I think they will upgrade the systems of only those trains, in which rich people travel,” said Gugu Prashar, a frequent traveller to South India.
“For god shake, UPA should say good bye to Mamata, she is derailing all reforms and playing big boss at center. She should concentrate on her state only,” added Bina Sharma, another passenger.
Railway Minister has been behaving more like a puppet whose strings are pulled by party president rather than a minister in charge of railways has put future of budget in doubt. The unreliable Mamata has asked for his sacking, ignoring passenger safety, national economics’, growth etc. It would be a shame for both Trivedi and the UPA government if they roll back the fares.
“I wish government should not bend to Mamata’s demands, our nation has become a puppet in her hands. We need reforms not political tamasha in our country,” concluded Mumtaz Mirza, political science student at Pune University.
