Making a strong point against ending over <g data-gr-id="16"><g data-gr-id="21">nine-decade</g> old</g> tradition of presentation of separate Rail budget in Parliament, he asked the NDA government at the Centre to rethink its decision.

“It seems Railway is not on <g data-gr-id="22">priority</g> of the NDA government at the Centre...this step would end autonomy of Railway,” he told reporters emerging from a press conference on International Sikh conclave.
