the world, what an able and effective manager he is ..
The past year he has generated cash surplus of Rs 19,000 crores plus
for the Railways and during his whole tenure in the Ralways, he has
given back the country as much as Rs 90,000 crores. An impossible
feat, anywhere in the world to replicate, which will be very difficult
for his political adversaries to digest and appreciate .. Even during
the past year when the whole industry was under pressure of recession,
the Railways has outperformed itself.
Keeping in perspective the findings of the Rakesh Committee under
Nitish Kumar as Railway Minister in 2001, which wanted the government
to pump in Rs 65,000 crores during the next ten years to keep the
Railways running, this superlative performance by Lalu Yadav and his
team from the Railways will be remembered for ages to come !!
