White Paper: Prabhu for safe, punctual services by ‘20
To exhibit the challenges that Railways Ministry is struggling with, Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu presented a White Paper in Parliament on Thursday. The White Paper, which was presented for the first time by any Rail Minister, shows that Railways is perched on a precipice but is capable of flying off and attaining great heights. “The organisation, especially its staff, has inherent strength and I am confident that a clear direction, targeted investments and well- defined priorities can make the organisation grow by leaps and bounds,” Prabhu said in his White Paper. The White Paper predicts a bright future for Railways, though it had a glorious past and a turbulent present. “The next five years would change the face of Railways. Faster trains, modern trains, swanky stations, skilled staff, should be the Railways of tomorrow,” Prabhu said in his White Paper.
