Zero plus zero equals zero: Trinamool Congress slams Suresh Prabhu's Rail Budget 2016


New Delhi: Dismissing the Railway Budget 2016-17 presented in the Lok Sabha on Thursday by Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu as a "big zero", the Trinamool Congress said there was "nothing new" in the document.

"The Railway Budget is a big zero. Last year, it had no depth. This year too. Nothing new at all," Trinamool chief national spokesperson Derek O'Brien said in a statement in New Delhi.

Referring to Prabhu's move to keep freight rates and passenger fares unchanged, O'Brien said they were increased earlier.

"Zero plus zero equals zero," he said.

Trinamool congress's founder-leader and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee is herself a former railway minister.
