Suresh Prabhu the dashing and Most active Railway Minister has introduced a great Railway budget in 2016. Before this the Railway budget  was looking like a State Railway Budget. Those who were Railway Minister they just introduce new trains for their state and always forget the other state. The Same practice was followed by all the Railway Minister they were not behaving as if they were the Railway Minister of India.
