Opposition today trashed the rail budget as a document which lacks vision and roadmap, with some members alleging neglect of states as no new trains have been announced.

“It is anti-people and visionless… The people have been deceived… There is no roadmap in the rail budget,” said Trinamool Congress member Kakoli Ghosh Dastidar said while participating in a debate on Rail Budget 2015-16 in the Lok Sabha.

She insisted that it has “nothing” and many of its provisions were a “joke”.

Dastidar said Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu had ignored the ‘Vision Document’ of Trinamool chief and former Railway Minister Mamata Banerjee and questioned whether it was a “political vendetta”. More info
