Trinamool MP praises railways minister for being ‘proactive’

Kolkata, Feb 21 (IANS) Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu on Sunday got profuse praise from senior Trinamool Congress MP Sougata Roy for his “proactiveness” and for being less of a politician and more a man of work.

Roy expressed confidence that the minister will be able to “break through” the colonial mindset prevailing in the railways.

“I know he is a pro-active minister and he wants to carry the work forward. He is less political, and more a man of work. We see politics in everything. But the minister does not indulge in much politics, he is more concerned with his work.

“I hope he will rise above all politics and give a new direction to development and progress,” Roy said at a programme organised by the railways where Prabhu was also present.

Thanking the minister for adopring measures to carry forward Trinamool Congress chief and former railway minister Mamata Banerjee’s plans, Roy said: “We like his initiative. We know he is a proactive minister but I don’t know whether the minister’s proactiveness can trump the railways’ bureaucracy.”

Prabhu was in the city to unveil a slew of projects.

“The problem with the railways is that even if the minister doesn’t want, rail workers somehow write that the work is not going forward for the public good. I believe the minister will try to break through the prevailing colonial mindset and structure,” Roy said.
