"Railway patri say utar gaya" (Railway has slipped down from the track) flaked Lalu. In his usual style Lalu said the budget was light weight and there was nothing in the budget. ("Itna halka tha, isme kuch nahi tha").
He further observed that in the current BJP regime the railway ministry has been derailed totally. "Railways was the life line of India earlier but after BJP assuming power the rail has lost the track and slipped down from the rail track"
Lalu also said India does not need any bullet train and alleged there is foreign vested interest behind introducing bullet trains in India.
