New Delhi: Railway Minister Dinesh Trivedi Friday said he will not tolerate delay in execution of railway projects and ruled out any compromise on the safety aspect.
Answering questions in Rajya Sabha for the first time
after taking over the Ministry, he said, "I will not tolerate
any delay in any area. If I can do it today, I will do it
today."
At the same time, he said, "I will not compromise on
safety of railways."

On why work on a coach factory at Kanjijode in Kerala did
not begin even though the project was announced four years
back, he said it was because the state government changed
terms for giving land for the project.
