India TV Chunav Manch: Union Minister for Railways Ashwini Vaishnaw on Wednesday appeared as a guest in India TV's Chunav Manch at a time when the high stakes Lok Sabha elections 2024 are underway in the country. He spoke about the performance of the Modi government, especially in the last five years, various issues related to his ministries and vision for the future. Besides railways, Ashwini Vaishnaw also holds communications and Electronics & Information Technology portfolios.

Speaking at Chunav Manch, Union Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw said that India's station redevelopment program is the largest ever exercise in the world.

In the last 10 years, the Modi government has constructed 31,000 kilometres of new railway tracks. Every day, the government is constructing 14.5 km of new railway tracks.

Apart from launching premium trains, the government has also focussed on non-AC trains for the common man.

When Lalu Yadav was Railways minister, only announcements of new trains used to happen but we never saw any work on the ground.
