We request the Honourable Ministerto check the trains run on time. Just to inform the Minister and the Board members that the train no 12308 is running late by 08 hours and this is a Super fast train. In a journey of 30 hours how can a train be late by 08 to 10 hours. Who is accountable for this running loss more  
Now we must hold Suresh Prabhu ji and team accountable to deliver this. more  
It looks like white paper on railway instead of railway budget. more  
The budget sounds good. What is required at the moment is to operate the trains on schedule, particularly those extra Full AC Trains and Holiday Specials as there is no limit for their delays. Time is very important and delays not only loose valuable time of the passengers but it leads to further inconvenience by missing the connecting trains at the destinations.
Recently our group of about 50 pax. travelled by LTT-Kamakhya Exp. both the way from LTT to Kamakhya (on 18th Jan.) and from Kamakhya to LTT(on 29th Jan.) when both the time the train was delayed by 5 hours, for no reason other than not getting signal/clearance. Ultimately we have to loose further connections and to incur heavy expenditure and face lot of discomforts. Most of us were sr. citizens. more  
Very good budget. more
