Prabu asks young minds to rescue railways


New Delhi: While addressing a gathering of students and alumni from IITs and National Law University and London School of Economics, Union Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu on Tuesday asked young minds to come out with a full proof method to prevent travelling without tickets.

He said, “We have big challenges and we have to address it. But the question is how to do it?”

Prabhu has sought innovative ideas for improvement in the facilities of the Indian Railways from the youth.

“Can we have odourless toilets without using water or ensuring less usage of water because water shortage is a problem and Railways is one of the biggest consumers of water?,” he said.

Speaking about the ticketless train journey he said, “Ticketless travel can be curbed. How to do it? Can you find a full proof solution to it?

“These are the challenges and the young minds can be engaged in addressing them. These are the day to day problems and we need solutions,” he said.
