Lalu Yadav questions Mamata on budget facts
New Delhi, Feb 24 (ANI): Former Railway Minister and Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasad Yadav on Wednesday said that he would like to ask Railway Minister Mamata Banerjee that which statistics she used to prepare the Railway Budget.
Before even presenting the budget, Banerjee drew ire from her predecessor Yadav who asked about the accounting system she followed to prepare the Railway Budget.
"She had raised question on my accounting in my Railway Budget. I just want to ask her one question with due politeness, that, is she presenting the Budget with some new accounting system or she is using the previous figures, used in my previous Budget on which she raised questions," said Lalu.
Earlier, Banerjee had criticised Yadav for misinforming people on the railways' earnings during his tenure.
She had blamed Yadav of using accounting terms to inflate revenue and profits of the railways. (ANI)
