Kolaveri didi derails Railway budget to demonstrate control over UPA
UPA-II has literally become a puppet show, remote controlled by Mamata Banerjee from Kolkata. She..

AT LAST Kolaveri didi aka Mamta Banerjee wins and shows her lady power by derailing the Railway Budget 2012-2013. Railway Minister Dinesh Trivedi offered resignation after his own party, the Trinamool Congress found across the board passenger fare hike as an aggressive act.

Banerjee may have achieved a notable stint as Chief Minister of West Bengal, however she is playing victim again by blackmailing ruling Congress. She is running her administration and authority on Tamil actor Dhanush’s song sensation Kolaveri, a run for its money with her own 24x7 Bengali Kolaveri against ally.

“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.
