NEW DELHI: Union Railway Minister Piyush Goyal on Monday, June 18, said that the Railways will strive hard to improve safety without compromising punctuality.
Addressing the media in the national capital, he said that the department had taken this decision after reviewing punctuality, catering and cleanliness in seven zones across the country.
“While efforts to improve punctuality will be taken without compromising our efforts on safety; any work related to safety will be given highest priority."
"We want Indian Railways to be active participant in promoting cleanliness across network. We'll work towards passenger engagement and creating awareness among passengers. Wherever train is delayed during meal time, we'll ensure food and water is provided for passengers," he said.
The railway minister added that the Indian Railways are also preparing the entire rail network including stations and coaches. (ANI)
