      Government employees have permanent jobs, 100 job security even if they do not work at all and if they do anything wrong and suspended, their unions save them. It is therefore, the need of the hour is to privitise indian Railways, Air india and State Transport so that people can enjoy comfortable and safe means of travel. A Government has no business to run railways, airlines and buses (other transport services).

        Railway ministry while giving lot of importance to increase the revenue has neglected Safety,food,service to the train passengers. Tatkal , Premium Tatkals were invented for more money. Railways is govt's service Industry and their services to the public is in question. Safety should be the main priority of Railways and it is completely neglected. Railway tracks do not seem to be having any preventive maintenance and always a fear of when and where the derailment would take place. a ACCIDENTS DO NOT HAPPEN BUT THEY ARE CAUSED BY THE INEFFICIENT EMPLOYEES AT HIGHER AND LOWER LEVELS. Derailments are increasing and it shows the lethargy in maintenance.

          Suresh Prabhu has been told by Modi not to worry unless death toll reaches 1000 for 2017. The score is 578 at present.
