Salman Khan Is All Set To Become Mama For The Second Time
The Corruption And Black Money is done. Now its time for our railways to become world class, at least this is what PM Modi is claiming now.
On Friday, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, through video conferencing, addressed the railway employees who are attending the Rail Vikas Shivir (rail development camp) which took place at Surajkund.
In the video conference, Modiji said that Indian Railways should also be on “new speeds, progress and new capacity” along with increasing the revenues.
He also spoke about how the change in Indian railways should be the change of the century. For this, he is ready to abolish a 92 year old practice in railways.
Keep reading ahead to see which practice we are talking about.
He is talking about abolishing the practice of presenting an annual Railway budget. He said that he never wanted to use the Railway Budget as his “political agenda” and that is why, he kept himself “free from the love for political gains (from railways)”.
He also spoke about his early days that he had to spend at railway stations selling Tea. His closeness with railways is a surprise for none.
“My relation with the railways is old. I have spent a lot of time on platforms. I have seen the railways from closer quarters from my childhood days. I have affection for railways since my childhood days and understand how big impact a change in the railways will bring," Modi said.
Therefore, whenever he visits Varanasi, he stays at Railway quarters. “As the Prime Minister, I can stay somewhere else but I prefer the Railway Guest House as it gives a feel of belonging,” he said.
PM also spoke about using better technology to improve our railways. The work of making the first high speed corridor of India, which will be between Mumbai and Ahmedabad, will commence from 2018.
“There used to be clapping on such announcements (in Parliament). When I took over, I noticed that 1500 announcements (regarding railways) had been made previously which had remained confined only to clapping,” he said. The way PM is working for the country is Praise worthy.
