Says department will be made profitable with zero political involvement
Newly-appointed Railways Minister Azam Khan Swati announced future course of action for running Pakistan Railways and vowed to make PR a profitable entity with zero political involvement, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.
Talking to newsmen after the meeting, Azam Swati said it is the job of the media to convey Imran Khan's policy on railways to the people. “I will try to perform better as Railways Minister if not the same as Sheikh Rasheed worked,” he added.
Azam Swati said media is the fourth pillar of the State and if the media does not keep an eye on the situation of Railways, then he would not be able to improve this ‘ruined’ railways. “I have accepted the challenge of railways,” he added.
“We have written letters to the provincial ministers regarding in-level crossings issues. Human safety is the first priority of Pakistan Railways now,” Azam Swati announced. He said, “Give me some time, I will ensure zero political involvement in Pakistan Railways.”
