Review-Railway Budget-2007 (a good and forward looking budget)

Lalu Prasad Yadav has again proved this that he is the best railway minister so far. Indian Railway has seen many first things in his tenure. Today Railway minister Lalu Prasad Yadav presented the Railway Budget for 2007 in Lok Sabha. According to the Rail Budget, Indian Railway registered a profit of Rs 20000 crores against the last year profit of around Rs 15000 crores.

This is really a good performance by the Indian Railway in any means. With this budget Lalu Yadav again proved his excellent administrative capacities. With this we all can hope that Indian railway is going in right direction. This is really a big achievement by the Indian railway because Indian railway is still running many non profit routes and fares are still less as compared to other means of transport.

The other advantage which Indian Railway is seeing in the leadership of Lalu Yadav is that Indian Railway is going for a major modernization. Garib Raths are already a reality for the Indian Railway and we can see more 8 Garib Raths in next year, except Garib Raths 32 other new trains will be also started. E-ticketing is already a reality in India and this budget has again helped it by reducing the e-ticketing charges.

Soon we can get Railway ticket at the ATM machines or petrol pumps. More over Railway ministry is also planning to open around 6000 automatic ticketing mechanizes from where people can easily get tickets without standing in rows. The other unique point of this budget is that Railway has announced 139 as unique railway enquiry telephone number though out India.

Railway has also plan for updating present railway stations and increasing the security measures by putting CCTV cameras. Now from next year passenger traveling through the ordinary class will have cushion seats instead of wooden ones. The other advantage of this budget is that Railway has also reduced the fares across all the classes.

The reduction in fare ranges from 2 to 8%. 20% reduction is also given on the super fast surcharge, now it will be Rs 8 from Rs 10. Not only the passengers are given benefits but some benefits are also offered to the freight class. Overall this is a forward looking and matured Rail budget which has something for everyone. All this will be a great thing if we see a similar budget next years also.

146 people killed in a stampede at Naina Devi shrine

It is not a new thing in this world to see people being killed in stampede at various religious places. Today in a similar incidence 146 people died and hundreds of other got injured in a stampede at famous Naina Devi temple in Bilaspur District of Himachal Pradesh. Naina Devi is a famous temple of Maa Durga in Himachal Pradesh which is just 40 Km away from famous holly place Anandpur Shahib and 160 Km from Shimla capital of Himachal Pradesh. Lakhs of people from adjoining areas of Himachal and Punjab have strong faith in Naina Devi, therefore we see huge rush of devotees at this place. Today, rush was very high at this place due to start of Navrata festivals because it is believed very rewarding to visit this temple during these days. Around 10:00 hrs in morning during peak rush times news of landslide caused unrest in devotees lined up for darshans and people started running here and there causing a stampede. Rush was so strong that railing on the 4 Km trek to temple got collapsed

Live results Jharkhand Assembly Election 2009 Who will Jharkhand Assembly Election 2009? (opinion poll) Slowly, 2009 Loksabha (Parliament) elections in India are coming very near. Most probably these elections will take place in April/May 2009. After these elections new government will take control of India. Presently, there are three main contenders for this position UPA (present government include parties like Congress, RJD, DMK etc), NDA (main opposition party include BJP, JD(U), BJD, Shiv Sena etc) and third front (which include parties like Communist parties, TDP etc). However, we can expect main fight between UPA and NDA. Presently, there are two big parties in India BJP (Bharatiya Janata Party) and Congress; however, due to emergence of many regional parties in India these parties cannot get power on their own. Therefore, support of these small parties become very crucial in these election. Small Parties like Communist parties, BSP (Bahujan Samaj Party), TDP (Telugu Desam

Who will win Kerala Assembly Election 2011?

Indian State of Kerala is going for Assembly polls on 13th April, 2011 as present Legislative Assembly is going to expire on 23-5-2011. Results of Kerala Assembly election 2011 will be declared on 13th May, 2011 with other four states going to poll with Kerala. Kerala is one of the most educated states of India; therefore, we can hope that People of Kerala will wisely choose their new chief minister. Presently, Kerala is ruled by Left Democratic Front (LDF) which is group of left parties and some Kerala regional parties. The opposition alliance is United Democratic Front (UDF) which is group of Congress and some Kerala regional parties. Generally, Kerala is ruled by either LDF or UDF and there is no third alternative present in Kearla. National parties like BJP, BSP have some presence in Kerala; however, so far they have failed to show any progress on ground. Kerala is also one state of India where a single leader can start his own political party; therefore, we see presence of man
