Railway committee comprising pro-Mamata intellectuals becomes defunct
Kolkata: The six-member Railway Passenger Amenities Committee comprising pro-Mamata Banerjee intellectuals have become non-existent with the change of the Railway Minister.
"The railway committee automatically becomes non-existent with a change in the post of Railway Minister and there is no question of tendering any resignation letter," Committee chairman Suvaprasanna, a renowned painter, told reporters at his Salt Lake residence today.
He said the new Railway Minister had not contacted him "and it is natural that old committees automatically stand dissolved under the new dispensation."
Suvaprasanna alleged there was a misconception that committee members received `huge remuneration`.
"I did not receive any remuneration when then Railway Minister Mamata Banerjee wanted me to head the committee to provide suggestions and advice for better passenger amenities in Indian Railways," he said.
"I agreed to do something which can be of good for improving passenger services and amenities of the railways," he said.
He claimed the committee had tried its best to provide suggestions which led to provisions like wheelchairs for old and ill passengers in railway stations. PTI PB PC
