New Delhi, 18 Nov 2016 : Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Friday that the focus of his governments railway budgets has never been politics, and that the government has worked towards a paradigm shift in the functioning of the railways.

“The century has changed and so must the systems in our Indian Railways,” the Prime Minister said while addressing the three-day ‘Rail Vikas Shivir’ at Surajkund near Delhi through video conferencing.

He said this is a technology-driven century, so innovation is essential, and therefore, the railways has to be about both ‘gati’ (speed) and ‘pragati’ (progress).

Modi stressed that the Indian Railways has to develop and be financially strong. He said this will benefit the country and particularly those working for the railways.
