Months after Dinesh Trivedi was removed as the railway minister, the Trinamul Congress continued to target him for hiking passenger fares and advised incumbent railway minister Mukul Roy on Thursday to follow the policies of West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee in running the organisation. “Between 2009 and May 2011, under Ms Mamata Banerjee, the Railways came up with a very time-bound vision document 2020. My suggestion to the railway minister will be to stay focused on it so that this brilliant organisation can continue to be the lifeline of the country,” Trinamul MP Derek O’Brien said during the discussion on the Railway Appropriation Bill, 2012, in the Rajya Sabha. In his speech, the Trinamul MP took a dig at Mr Trivedi, saying safety issues in the organisation “cannot be addressed by hiking passenger fares”. Winding up discussion on the Bill, which was later returned to the Lok Sabha, Mr Roy said...
that over one lakh vacancies in the Railways will be filled up during this fiscal, including the safety-related posts, and the e-booking site will be upgraded to enable one million ticket sale per day. He said while 75,000 candidates have been recruited following the streamlining of the examination process, “1.44 lakh candidates are proposed to be recruited during 2012-13. This will also include the safety-related posts.”
