The Railway Minister has presented a > practical and pragmatic budget instead of dwelling on populism — the factor responsible for the misery inflicted on the Railways in the earlier years. The four goals, of cleanliness, safety, modernisation of infrastructure and making the railways financially self-sustainable, are most appropriate and well-conceived. The use of technology to provide innovative facilities to passengers and greater attention to women’s safety, senior citizens and persons with disabilities are all welcome. On the whole, it is a growth-oriented budget and one can say that the ‘Modi Express’ has steamed off in the right direction!
