-SSS/NBR-KLG/4R/6.20.

SHRI GIREESH KUMAR SANGHI (ANDHRA PRADESH): Sir, I cannot be so different from the whole House. I am the last speaker. Everybody has highly appreciated the Railway Budget and the whole team of Shri Lalu Prasad ji. I also congratulate the whole team and his leadership.

Sir, I have a few specific points to mention here. I hope the hon. Ministers sitting here will make note of them and they will be referred to in the reply. In our country, the Indian Railways play a very important role as far as providing infrastructure is concerned. Over the years, as far as transport share is concerned, there has been a shift from Railways to road transport. This shift was, basically, due to improper handling of goods, especially parcel goods and local transfer goods. I would like to request the hon. Ministers to look into this and plan how to retain the original share of Indian Railways, which was playing a major role in transporting goods from one part of the country to the other. I am saying this because the Indian Railways is a very, very efficient organization. If you look at the fuel consumption per tonne haulage, Railways consume about 1/6th fuel in terms of per tonne haulage of any goods. So, if we can try to bring back the earlier market share of Railways, which it was having, I think, that will help a lot to our country and also save the foreign exchange which we, otherwise, have to shell out through import of oil. In this regard, Roll-on and Roll-off was one concept which was conceived and implemented on the Konkan Railways. This can help a lot in transporting the goods from one part to the other part, especially in containers and trucks. This Roll-on and Roll-off Multi-Model Transport System is something like, you load a truck on a flat wagon and long distance haulage is carried on the Railways, instead of carrying on road. This helps a lot to decongest our roads. It also helps in reducing the accidents and there is also a lot of saving in terms of fuel, fatigue of drivers, etc. There have been a lot of reports on this. All over the world this concept is very successfully being implemented. They use MMS; wherever they can use railways, they use railways or wherever they can use sea route or inland water transport, they use that and try to save as much as possible. But, in this, the major hindrance is infringement of height. When you load a container or a truck on a flat wagon, there is a height impediment. If we can give a serious thought to reducing the height impediment -- not much of expenditure is required -- our country can save a lot. And, especially, the perishable goods can move very fast. It is because Railways move very fast. For example, if you take a truck to travel from Hyderabad to Delhi, it takes almost eight days and you cannot send perishable goods. But, a fast express train reaches in 20 hours. A lot of goods which farmers produce either in the Southern States or the Northern States can be transported very fast and we can also contain the price rise and can also make availability of goods to people much easier.

(CONTD. BY USY "4S")

usy-aka/4s/6:25

SHRI GIREESH KUMAR SANGHI (CONTD.): Sir, again I am coming on the same thing. If refrigerator container facility can be introduced in the Railways, it will also help in handling the perishable goods to a great extent. Apples from Kashmir can come down to South; grapes from South can go down to the North. Similarly, there are milk products which can be easily transported from one part of the country to another. Eggs, which are produced mostly in Hyderabad, can be transported to all parts of the country. Railways has got a great potential. In the last 2-3 Budgets, Laluji has shown tremendous profits. We are all very eager to know how, all of a sudden, Railways have started making profits. Why could not it make profits earlier? What is the miracle that Laluji has done? I think, he has adopted the saying, "֟--֤, ֤--". He has been bold enough to say that wagons should be loaded to their maximum capacity. Why was it not done earlier? Has any inquiry been conducted why the Railways were in losses for all these years; who were responsible for that? 'Better late than never'. We are happy that, at least, it has happened now. I would be very happy if the hon. Minister find out what were the reasons for the losses in the past. I think, a report must come out how, all of a sudden, the Railways have shown a turn around. There are a number of sectors which need a turn around. The example of the Railways can be a good example for all of them to emulate. It can prove to be a very good case study. The Railways have a great potential in the field of parcel services also. About 40 lakh trucks are operating all over the country. There was a report recently on these trucks. They pay around Rs. 20,000 crores as road mamool and toll tax every year. It can be shifted back to the Railways and this money can be saved. Thus, the country will grow much faster. We have to catch up with other developing countries, like, China. So, we have to perform much better.

Export is yet another important area. Exports need haulage of containers. In our country, the haulage of container is very expensive. It is even expensive than the sea transport. If I have to send a container, say, from Chennai port to Singapore or Hong Kong, the cost of haulage is hardly about 800 dollars. But the cost of inland haulage is around Rs. 30,000-40,000, which comes to more than 1,000 dollars. So, it would be helpful if we can have a system where there is some sort of a cost subsidy or equalisation of fare for haulage of containers for export units which are located in remote areas. The Government is contemplating that the industrial units come up in the areas where there are no industries. But unless we create infrastructure and make the things competitive, it is not possible. If an industry is set up in a remote area, the cost of transport will be costlier, the cost of labour will be costlier, and availability of other things will be costlier. It would not be able to compete. I think, the Railways can play an important in such a situation.

The next point on which I would like to emphasise is about my State, that is, Andhra Pradesh. The Members of Parliament from Andhra Pradesh met the hon. Prime Minister. A lot of injustice had been done to Andhra Pradesh. Though our Government has categorically assured of seven programmes, like, the MMTC, MMTS -- the Government of Andhra Pradesh is ready to bear 2/3rd of the total cost -- yet nothing is happening. The proposal for new lines between Bhadrachallam--Kovvur, Nadikudi--Srikalahasti and kadapa-Bangalore, and a lot of other proposals are pending with the Ministry. The State of Andhra Pradesh did not get its due share. People of Andhra Pradesh feel that their State has not been properly represented in this Railway Budget.

(Contd. by 4t -- VP)

VP/6.30/4T

SHRI GIREESH KUMAR SANGHI (CONTD.): So, I request the Railway Ministers and the Department to kindly see that Andhra Pradesh gets its due share.

Another point is this. The work of Delhi Metro is a great success story. We have shown to the whole world how well we can build our own metro and the same story can be repeated in various metropolitan cities like Hyderabad, Bangalore, Chennai and other places. It should be very fast. Just now, an hon. Member said that one small line took ten years. It should not take 5-10 years to build a metro. It should be very fast. Now that the Railways are earning profits, they can raise huge funds. They can go to foreign investors, foreign banks and get huge funds. We have to accelerate our work. We have to think globally. We have to position ourselves globally. We get so many foreign tourists. But in the standards which they see in their countries and which they see in our country, there is a lot of difference. We have to improve the over all standards of facilities, hygiene, food, and how they are treated on the platforms in the Railways at the entry points, getting ticketing done, reservation done, etc. All these aspects have to be improved. Though there is an improvement, there is a lot to be done. And, I am sure, under the able leadership of Shri Lalu Prasadji, things will improve.
