Railway budget a reflection of NDA Government's 'noble' motives: PM Modi

New Delhi, Feb 26 : Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday said that the railway budget presented by Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu was indicative of his government's noble endeavor with respect to the needs of the common man, and added that the proposal is aimed at benefitting the poorest of the poor in the country.

"The railway budget, in the past, had focused on how many coaches would be added, how many coaches would have air-conditioning and how many trains would be added to the existing network. For the first time, we have a railway budget targeting Rs eight lakh crores without raising passenger fares. This is a reflection of the government's noble and accomplished motive," Prime Minister Modi said.
