Lalu jibe at railways

Arwal, Dec. 24 (PTI): Patting his own back, former railway minister Lalu Prasad today claimed that since his departure, the ministry has been running on a temporary basis.

He asserted that he would complete the unfinished projects of his time if he became minister again. “Since the day I left railway ministry, it is running on temporary basis,” Lalu told a RJD rally here.

Lalu alleged that projects of which he had laid the foundation as minister had come to nought. “You voted the RJD out of power by ensuring victory of only four MPs. By doing so, you brought the wheel of development in the railways in particular to a halt,” he said.
