SHRI M. VENKAIAH NAIDU (CONTD.): On a trial, experimental, basis, you can rope in HUDCO. You can have some shopping complexes and you can earn revenue also. Through that, again, you can focus your attention on your expansion work, on conversion work. Sir, in the Eleventh Plan, resources are a big problem for the railways. If you go for an ambitious plan, and if you want to really adjust, understand and address the regional aspirations, you need a huge amount of money. We do not have that much money. And if you just want to postpone the problem for some more years, that is a different matter. So, I want that idle assets of the railways in various parts of the country be assessed; they have to be identified and they have to be disposed of wherever it is required. In other places the land which is lying vacant, which is not suitable for future expansion, which is not required for future expansion, has to be taken care of for optimum utilisation and adding to the revenue of the railways.
Sir, with regard to the reactions, he is saying that everybody is happy. Mr. Rana, former Chairman, Railway Board: "The cleanliness in railways should be taken care of. Announcements are made, but their implementation is never heard of. The status and implementation of Revenue Scheme should be available on the Internet. Security has been talked about, but its implementation is seldom seen."
Second, Mr. Ashok Bhatnagar, former Chairman, Railway Board: "If you ask me how many marks out of ten, I would give only five to this Budget." This is what the former Railway Board Chairman says! "There is no mention of railway resources. For the functioning of the Eleventh Five Year Plan, Railways is requiring a huge amount of money, around three lakh crores."
Sir, Indian Express: "Infrastructure projects have remained stuck.--I am not reading the entire thing--Construction of the Freight Corridor Project is yet to begin. As of now, only a Special Purpose Vehicle has been dedicated. And they have been asked to prepare a project report. And even the business plan is not yet ready. So are Laluji's promises, to set up rail-linked container depots, logistics, parks and modernised signalling and telecommunication system." This is what the Indian Express says.
Sir, finally: "Going by the Railway Minister's promises of 2005-06 and, again, of 2006-07, the Ajmeri Gate side --Sir, the shining example; the Members of Parliament can make a visit-- of the New Delhi Railway Station was to have a state-of-the-art building with premium passenger facilities. And so many things the Minister has, earlier, said. I am told, not even tenders are final so far. Since two years, you have been talking about it. This is the fate of the project in the National Capital of Delhi for a prestigious railway station. You can imagine what is happening in the countryside."

This is not the case with regard to this region alone. This is the case with regard to the entire

narrow gauge, around 10,000 odd kilometres.

SHRI M. VENKAIAH NAIDU (CONTD): Yesterday, I was going by the AP Express from Kazipet to Godavari Khani. The train stopped at two places, where there was no halt. There must be some reason for that. While going, I reached there more than 40 minutes late. But while coming, in order to compensate me, they brought me before time to Secunderabad, wherein I was made to wait outside because the driver had not come. He was to come at 7.15 and I reached there at 6.15. When I was standing there, I utilised my time to make inquiries about passenger's problems, and I wanted to update my knowledge also.

interested in seeing that the Indian Railways is maintained well, run well, made
profits, expanded in the entire country and became number one world-class
transport system in the entire world.
