New Delhi: The BJP on Wednesday termed the Railway Budget as ‘directionless’ and ‘anti-people’, saying it will add to the woes of the common man.

"It is a directionless and anti-people budget,"The BJP's vice president Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said, adding that without taking effective steps for ensuring security, facility and time, "announcements have been made for an expensive journey".

He said at a time when the common man was already under attack from the burden of price rise and inflation, "the railway budget has given another bigger blow".

Naqvi said, "While the Railway minister has announced a five-year plan for taking care of security, facility and time, the burden of increased fare has been slapped on the common man in five minutes".

The BJP general secretary Ananth Kumar said the Rail Budget was ‘anti-aam aadmi’ and there was no vision in the budget.

"There is no vision. There is no action and prices will shoot up," he said.
