New Delhi: Set to present his maiden budget in parliament Wednesday, Railway Minister Dinesh Trivedi said it would keep in my mind the needs of the common man and the country.

"The budget is going to be very good for the country and the common man. I have to make sure that Indian Railways is solid like gold," Trivedi told reporters before leaving Rail Bhavan for parliament.

"The railways are one of the most important infrastructure. Without the railways growing, India's GDP cannot grow," the minister added.
