Nothing new in budget: Ex-railway ministertext_fields
New Delhi: The NDA government's railway budget for 2015-16 is a repetition of what the UPA government presented in the past, former railway minister Pawan Kumar Bansal said Thursday.
He said the budget only took forward previous budgets presented by the United Progressive Alliance government.
"It's repetitive...," he told reporters after Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu presented the budget in the Lok Sabha Thursday.
He said the IT provisions being talked about now were actually introduced by former prime minister Rajiv Gandhi a long time ago.
"It would have been good had he done something in the nine months of his government," Bansal said.
