PK/3H/4.30

SHRI KARNENDU BHATTACHARJEE (ASSAM): Mr. Deputy Chairman, Sir, I rise to speak about the Railway Budget which has been appreciated by the general people of the country. I would like to say a few words on this. The Railway Budget 2007-08 happens to be the fourth consecutive Budget, which has a set record of not raising the passenger fares. Salient features are that about eight per cent fares of upper class have been slashed. At the same time, there is a reduction of freight charges on diesel, petrol, minerals and coal, which will check the inflationary trends. About 40 new trains, including eight garibi trains, are expected to be introduced. About more than 800 coaches would be attached to popular trains. At the same time, there is a proposal that second-class coaches will get upholstered seats in increased numbers. I must congratulate the Railway Minister that, at least, he has taken some steps since the last four consecutive Budgets. Many Members have criticised the Government, the Railway Department. I have been a Member of the Rajya Sabha for the last 11 years. There are many suggestions; the Opposition may criticise as Opposition. Definitely, every Member has a right to give constructive suggestions. But this is the first time I have observed this. It is also a fact that not a single Minister has done so. Though Laluji has many difficulties, he has, at least, maintained the balance of the country's opinion. The people below the Poverty Line are in majority in our country. They realise that at least Laluji is thinking about them. That is why I support, appreciate, and congratulate Laluji. There will be 50 per cent concession for candidates. Is there any Minister since the last eight years who has given 50 per cent concession to the students to appear for the examination? Sir, last time, I said something about the unemployment problem. I am full praise for Laluji that he will, at least, fulfil the demands of about 800 Members who are in the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha and, definitely, he is thinking; I appreciate his thinking. In four years, he has taken such steps. Sir unemployment is a burning question in the country. I think he is the only Minister who can solve this problem. For developing additional infrastructure and for providing extra amenities, there is a proposal to allow public-private partnership, which has been criticised by our hon. Member Madhuji. Is it possible for the Government? The whole country, the whole world is now under the liberalisation process. We are also following the liberalisation process. We are following this policy. At present, we have growth of 9-11 per cent. Privatisation is required. Every State wants to have factory, this factory, or, that factory. The Railway Ministry is not the only Ministry to provide funds. So, I appreciate Laluji. This is the new mantra. We should use world-class technology in Indian Railways. Private and Public -- this is the new mantra I think. I am not in favour of privatisation. But, the Railway Department is a big organisation. Our country's policy is like this. At present, we can compete with the world technology, I say as an Indian, and as a Member I am proud of it. The hon. Minister is very serious about senior citizens and disabled persons. Special attention has been given to women over 45 years who would automatically be entitled to a lower berth in AC Sleeper Class. This has happened for the first time in the Railways. (contd. by 4J/PB)

PB/3J/4.35

SHRI KARNENDU BHATTACHARJEE (CONTD.): Perhaps, this has been done for the first time in the history of Railways. He realised this problem. He has realised that a forty-five year old woman cannot climb up to the upper berths. The hon. Minister has realised this thing. That is why he has taken such a step. I, therefore, appreciate this step of the hon. Railway Minister.

The other good thing which has been done, for the first time, in the Budget is that special coaches with wider cushion seats, specially-designed toilets, etc., would be introduced for the disabled passengers.

Sir, safety has been accorded a priority in the Budget. Appropriate amount has also been kept for modernisation of Railway tracks in a phased manner. It has been proposed that more staff is to be trained at the national as well as at the international level on track safety. We have discussed this problem several times. As far as the problem of track renewal is concerned, my colleague, Mr. Chaturvedi, is here, we have discussed this issue in the Railway Standing Committee meetings several times. We have discussed various matters related to this. We have discussed this thing many times. I think keeping that thing in view, our hon. Railway Minister has taken several steps. I request that this should also be implemented. The only problem is there is no implementation of the measures announced. So, Laluji should take care to see that the schemes which have been announced are implemented step-by-step. The schemes should start. They should be implemented.

I also congratulate the Railway Minister about the steps he has taken with regard to the North-East. I come from Assam. Previously, one senior leader of the NDA, Venkaiah Naiduji, -- he is not here -- had criticised the Railway Minister. But, in my area, several projects have been taken up in this year's Railway Budget. There has been Lumding- Silchar broad gauge line which was taken up in the year 1996 and then there is Kumarghat-Agartala line which was taken up in the year 1996-97, but nothing was done during NDA's time. Our most important demand is related to the Bogibil bridge and Mokokchung project. All these broad gauge line projects have been taken up during Laluji's time. I must congratulate him for all this. But I must mention one thing. The Railway Minister has mentioned in his speech that the Bogibil project would be taken up. Laluji, the Bogibil bridge is very important for the South part of Assam, i.e., Barak Valley, but there is also Brahmaputra Valley. But for Barak Valley, Bogibil is the most important thing. It adds confusion among the people of Assam whether this will be taken up this year or not. It should be taken up immediately. However, you have not mentioned anything about it whether it will be taken up this year or not. I would like to know whether it would start in this year or not. The Prime Minister has already announced that it is a national project. My colleagues, particularly, the hon. Members from that area, should realise that Mizoram, Manipur, Tripura and Nagaland are all connected with it.

Sir, the UPA Government, under the leadership of Dr. Manmohan Singh and under the guidance of the Congress President, Soniaji, has taken various steps for the development of the North-East. You know the present position of the North-East. There is insurgency zone. These people are feeling dejected. There is a feeling among them that they are being deprived of the opportunities and amenities which are there in the other parts of the country. That is why, our Government and the Railway Minister, Laluji have taken some very good steps. I must appreciate it. I hope that he will fulfil their demands early. This is my personal opinion. I have fought for this Lumding-Silchar project for a long time. This project is connected with Agartala, Mizoram, Manipur, etc.

I think, Laluji has already got the information that the Government of India is withdrawing forces from this insurgency-prone area. There was a militant attack there in which many Railway employees died, many contractors died. After that, he discussed this with the Home Minister, the Chief Minister and with me. He had consultations with several other leaders. It was emphasised that this is a very important road and, accordingly, the Central Government has sanctioned some para-military forces and the State Government has posted them there.

(Contd. by 3k/SKC)

3k/4.40/skc-aka

SHRI KARNENDU BHATTACHARJEE (CONTD): But, at present, since the UP elections are forthcoming, the Home Minister is trying to withdraw the force. But, let me say, Sir, that the hon. Home Minister should realise that this is an insurgency-infected area where we are facing the ULFA problem; 89 Hindi-speaking people died recently. People there have been fighting for this cause. Forces should be posted there. Laluji, please take up this matter. You are a senior Minister. I also hope my friend, Shri Santosh Mohan Deb, will take up this matter with the Prime Minister.

Sir, I also want to mention that the Railways has the highest potential of providing employment opportunities. The unemployment position in the whole of the North-East, but specially in Assam, is the worst. Not only in my State but also in other States of the North-East there has been a grievance that although the railways have a huge potential but that region's people are being deprived. I am not talking about the Group A or B of posts which should be filled only through a competitive examination but, so far as Group C and D posts are concerned, I suggest to the hon. Minister that appointment should be done on State-wise basis and not on the zonal basis. This is my opinion which should be examined.

SHRI LALU PRASAD: There is a Supreme Court judgment... (Interruptions)

SHRI KARNENDU BHATTACHARJEE: I don't know, Sir, what the Supreme Court judgment is. But we are facing this problem day-in-day-out. Is the Supreme Court above the Parliament? (Interruptions) No, I do not agree, Sir. I respect the Supreme Court. But there are lakhs and lakhs of people who are unemployed. There are cases pending in the lower courts and the Supreme Court. What is all this? Sir, you are a leader of our country. You should sit with the Opposition and discuss these matters and decide to do something. So, this is my solution.

SHRI KARNENDU BHATTACHARJEE: But, please think over it, Sir. That is my earnest appeal to you. How it is to be tackled, you know. You have a very good brain. So, please devise some mechanism.

SHRI KARNENDU BHATTACHARJEE: Yes, Sir. I support what Shri Ahluwaliaji is saying. Laluji, you should think about and I am sure you will come out with some solution. There are many families which do not have any of their members employed either in the State Government or Central Government. I would suggest to the hon. Minister that in Groups C and D, consideration for employment should be on the basis of State and not on a zonal basis. That is my point. But you must examine all the issues. At least, one job should be provided to each family where none of their members is employed either in the State or Central Government. (Contd. by 3l)

KSK/MCM/4.45/3L

SHRI KARNENDU BHATTACHARJEE (CONTD): That is my request. ׸ָ ִ ֤ C D ָ ו֋ - ָ֯; not these others. Sir, ָ כ֙ Other Departments are only giving hope. They are not giving anything.

In this UPA Government, the Congress is the big brother and their slogan is " ֣, ִ ֤ ֣".

MR. DEPUTY CHAIRMAN: Please, conclude.

SHRI KARNENDU BHATTACHARJEE: So, I must say, for Laluji, new mantra should be, "ֻ ֣, ָ߲ ֣". Then, every Member will be satisfied all over the country. We are 800 representatives of the country. With this new confidence, I wrote a letter to the Minister regarding one candidate. The answer was, "No, your name is not in the computer list." What is the computer? It is not meant for chaprasi and Khalasi. It will be purely your decision. I think Members of Parliament who represent the people are responsible to the electorate and should have some control, at least, in the employment process. Their recommendations should be given due consideration in their respective constituencies. Thank you, Sir. (Ends)

MR. DEPUTY CHAIRMAN: Hon. Members, there are 40 Members who have to participate. Please, restrict to your timings. Shri Ram Narayan Sahu.
