Railway budget a big zero, says Trinamool

New Delhi, Feb 25 (IANS) Dismissing the Railway Budget – 2016-17 presented in the Lok Sabha on Thursday by Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu as a “big zero”, the Trinamool Congress said there was “nothing new” in the document.

“The R$ailway Budget is a big zero. Last year, it had no depth. This year too. Nothing new at all,” Trinamool chief national spokesperson Derek O’Brien said in a statement here.

Referring to Prabhu’s move to keep freight rates and passenger fares unchanged, O’Brien said they were increased earlier.

“Zero plus zero equals zero,” he said.

Trinamool congress’s founder-leader and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee is herself a former railway minister.
