Ashok Gehlot said in this regard that you have tried to reduce the importance of railways by abolishing the separate railway budget during your tenure. Today, the modern train can run, because Dr. Manmohan Singh, as the Finance Minister, liberalized the economy in 1991 and allowed new technology to develop in India.
