Lal Bahadur Shashtri
Madhu Dandavate
Nitish Kumar
Heard of these people?

Shashtriji is credited to providing more facilities to travelers in third class compartments. He reduced the vast disparity between the first class and third class in the Railways. ICF Chennai was installed by him. We had "Make In India" 60 years back! Shastriji RESIGNED twice (first resignation was not accepted by Pandit Nehru) on MORAL ground for two accidents each of which killed more than 100 people.
Mr Madhu Dandavate, credited with making the Konkan Railway a reality. He is said to be the first RM who introduced the computerisation of railway reservations.He initiated improvements in second-class railway travel for passengers by replacing the wooden berths with berths consisting of two inches foam. Replacement of wooden seats in second class with foamed seats. These things do matter.
Nitish Kumar, initiator of online booking via IRCTC. Brought concept of satellite terminal, announced ANVT to decongest Delhi, brought up TATKAL scheme, opened up a record number of railway ticket booking counters. Some officials say that the financial turnaround during Lalu Yadav years was possible only due to the substantial work in improvement of railway lines and time-keeping of passenger trains that was done during Nitish Kumar regime.
I have given you 3 strong contenders against Suresh Prabhu. None of his work has bore any fruit except for twitter redressal system. It will be wrong to call him best RM so far. And no one knows future.
Coming to resignation,
Apparently, resignation won't solve any problem. But I have not heard Mr Prabhu taking any responsibility as the head of ministry. Yaha to bas twitter pe galat data dalkar, khud ka image acha kiya ja raha hai. congestion ka rona ro rahe hai, lekin khud ki ministry k MoSR trains badhaye jaa rahe hai. This is shameful.
And ye koi excuse nahi hai, ki "kosis kar rahe hai"!
for gods sake, log mar rahe hai. We should have some empathy. Ministry has to set its priorities straight. IR upgrade ka credit
And as you have replied, lo ek aur accident. Kaifiyaat express derailed.

but the main thing is there is huge deference btween that tym to this tym.. prabhu is trying to change the whole infrastructure of railway coaches .. the all pending projects which are in wait list from last 20-30years he trying to complete within 5 to 7 years.. and all projects are going one the surface .. mr. lalu have maked this railway hell no infrastructure construction only new trains and make the railway full of conjasion .. the converting the all ICF into LHB is a huge decision, which others ministers doesn't done.. first LHB was suggested early before 15yrs ago .. .
look todays accident is also very dangerous but due to LHB rake the casualty becomes
zero.. its not is to convert 65000 coaches at a day .. prabhu is really gifted person for railway trust me its really tough but he will definitely complete the whole problem fix up by 8-10 years fully. .

Indian Railways: 5 myths and facts
Myth #1: Number of Railways accidents and fatalities have increased under Suresh Prabhu.
Reality: The consequential train accidents have continuously declined from 135 in 2014-15 to 107 in 2015-16 and further to 104 in 2016-17. To state a comparison, the average annual accidents during UPA I were 207 per year, during UPA II were 135 per year and during current government have reduced to 115 per year. Although every human life is invaluable and is irreparable loss to us but the number of casualties have also
seen a declining trend. Total fatalities in first 3 years of UPA I were 759, they increased to 938 during UPA II, while the first three years of this government has seen the number decline to 652.
Myth #2: Railways has lost focus on safety.
Reality: Safety remains one of the prime concerns and priorities for the Ministry.
1. When this government took over, analysis revealed that 40 per cent of the accidents and 60 per cent of fatalities were due to accidents on Unmanned level crossings. Hence, Mission Zero Accident was launched to ensure all Unmanned level crossings were eliminated by 2019. It has seen unprecedented success, where we eliminated 4258 UMLCs in last 3 years, leading to drop in fatalities from UMLC accidents from 64 per cent of total fatalities in 2013-14 to 16.81 per cent in 2016-17.
2. State of infrastructure is an important constituent to safety performance. The infrastructure had been deteriorating due to years of neglect, which requires huge investments. Investment in safety have increased from Rs 33972 Crore per year during UPA II to Rs54031 Crore every year under this government a jump of 60 per cent.
3. Congestion on tracks also has some impact on safety. Reduction in congestion is achieved by infrastructure upgradation which again requires huge capital expenditure. We have been working this regard also. Under this government, by the end of year we would be spending about Rs 4 lakh crore on infrastructure creation. In last 67 years since independence (1947- 2014) capital investment of Rs 4.9 lakh crore was made on Indian Railways.
4. In 2017-18, a Fund namely 'Rashtriya Rail Sanraksha Kosh' (RRSK) has been created for financing critical safety related works. The Fund has been created with a corpus of Rs 1 lakh crore over a period of five years.
5. Decision to stop production of ICF coaches, the main stay of Indian Raiwlays Passenger Business for many years, and having no anti climbing features was taken in 2015-16.
6. Existing stock of 40,000 ICF coaches (90 per cent of total coaches) cannot be discarded and hence is being retrofitted with CBC couplers to make them safer.
7. New technologies like Condition based monitoring system for rolling stock and Track and Ultrasonic Broken Rail Detection System are being piloted on the network.
Myth #3: Number of vacancies in safety positions has increased recently leading to a spurt in accidents.
Reality: Average vacancy in safety positions during the period 2009-10 to 2013-14 was 18.65 per cent of total sanctioned strength. This has dropped down to 16.86 per cent in 2017 despite the sanctioned strength increasing by 5 per cent from 2014 to 2017. Further, during the current government we have recruited almost 37,510 people in the safety categories taking the total staff strength to 635940 on 1.04.2017. Massive recruitments of almost 2,00,000 staff in these categories are also lined up .
Myth #4: Railways has been dragging its feet to implement Kakodkar Committee recommendations.
Reality: High Level Safety Review Committee had made 106 recommendations on various aspects of railway's working. Out of 106, 68 recommendations have been fully accepted out of which 52 have been fully implemented and 16 are under implementation. 19 recommendations were partially accepted out of which 13 have been implemented. 19 recommendations were not accepted by the Railways.
Myth #5: Railways has diverted funds to develop fancy projects like Bullet Train.
Reality: Indian Railways has unflinching commitment to the poor and the downtrodden as can be seen by a few examples:
1.Passenger fares are still amongst the lowest in the entire world. In fact, Indian Railways subsidises passenger and suburban travel to the tune of almost Rs 36,000 crore annually.
2.Antyodaya express - fully unreserved, super-fast trains with enhanced amenities such as drinking water, vestibule trains, LHB coaches etc were launched only to cater to unreserved segment.
3. Re 1 clinics were launched at important suburban stations
4. Indian Railways ensures availability of Janta meals at all major stations
High speed train from Mumbai to Ahmedabad is being funded by Japan government with less than 20 per cent contribution from Government of India. This money, which came at incredibly attractive terms (0.1 per cent rate of interest) was made available only for this high-speed project and was not available to fund safety projects for Indian Railways. Moreover, high speed train is the safest mode of transport in the world. Hence, the government has not diverted any funds from existing corpus.

*In 2012 High Level Safety Review Committee was formed under chairmanship of Dr Anil Kakodkar, to ensure any safety lapse is not allowed to occur again. They came up with a set of 106 recommendations in 2012, with a 2017 deadline to implement them. Until 2016, One year before deadline, only 68 recommendations were accepted – of which only 22 have been fully implemented. The rest are a work in progress, while some others have been rejected.
* The committee suggested complete shift from ICF to LHB coaches. It is sad that
same was accepted after lots of people lost their lives in the Kanpur accident. While Railway ministry has set up a target of 2020, for complete shift to LHB from ICF, various Railway officials agree that it is simply not possible. Because, All coach factories are equipped with materials of ICF coaches, which are of worth crores. Added to that, lifespan of an ICF coach is about 25 years. Indian Railways which is short of funds is still producing ICF coaches even presently (Model Rake coaches). According to some officials, such complete shift from ICF to LHB wont be possible before 2040.
*According to a White Paper released two years ago by Mr Prabhu, 4,500 kms of track of the total 1,14,907 kilometers need to be renewed annually. But due to financial constraints, as of March 2016, 5,900 kms of track is up for renewal and the arrears are only accumulating.
*The government launched a $15 billion safety overhaul in February after the surge in accidents blamed on defective tracks. But in June, Reuters reported that the overhaul was facing delays as the state steel company could not meet demand for new rails.

Railways NTES se seekh le rha aur data manipulation wo bhi seekh rha.
If you say TOI as authentic, I consider THE HINDU as more authentic than TOI
In derailment case of Kalinga Utkal express, TOI reported about 150 injuries to passengers, HINDU reported more than 400 injured.
Now tell which news should I consider as more authentic?
me tell you a scene which I encountered a few minutes ago, a media person was about to take a interview from a elderly couple ( I don't want to name the channel as I don't want to defame anybody), rather than asking their opinion, media person was explaining to them, what to tell and what not to.
Its very bad to see such a reality of media, it's like you are enforcing people to tell what they want to show and want they want to prove.

LHB h to usko uska route v sahi chahiye.. jisase logo ko double fayda mile..
