  • Sheeda tally giving employment to his cronies and by running unprecedented number of trains is increasing deficit of railway

  • shameful performance of sheeda talli. He is busy in press conferences and interviews while his ministry is draining billions in tax payer money.

  • All the government departments who are fail in their performance making loss for the poor public day by day should be closed even with their ministries. Rascals making their bank accounts with the taxes of public.

  • Nothing changed. The same loss as in earlier years but inflated by the new dollar prices. Railways have a foreign component of their maintenance expenses.
