24May, I Madam, draw the attention of the hon. Minister to an important Committee set up by the Government of/ India in 1998 under the chairmanship of Mr. Neogi who are asked to enquire into the/ various problems of railway-road co-ordination? Their PRELIMINARY report appeared sometime ago, and it was even circulated to all/ the State Governments for their opinion.  But to my regret, I have to say that the work of this Committee/ has been very much HINDERED as a result of the INDIFFERENCE and, may I say, CALLOUS negligence on the part (100) of the State Governments as well as on the part of the Ministry concerned in taking up this question and/ in PURSUING it so that we may be able to have a clear and COMPREHENSIVE picture of the transport situation/ in the country.

          Now, railway transport like any other MODE of transport is suffering under a major HANDICAP, the handicap/ being that we do not know, nor does the Railway Ministry know, what the exact QUANTUM of transport requirement in/ the country is and what the rising demand is which the Railways and expected to CATER to in future.  Certain (200) TARGETS which have been worked out in the Tenth Plan have been given to us.  In the Ninth plan, we/ were given certain targets.  But unfortunately, Madam, may I point out that all those targets were either gross UNDER-ESTIMATES/ or EXAGGERATIONS? Throughout, we have seen that we have not been able to have a well coordinated and progressive development/ of the transport system in the country.  So, anything we suggest today will have/ that kind of air of unreality. Without knowing fully or adequately what exactly the transport needs in the country are, (300) we are not in a position to discuss or DILATE UPON the problems of the Railways or the transport itself./

          Madam, last year when I was speaking on the Budget, I pointed out that there had been planning of some/ sort but within this planning there had not been sufficient planning in the functioning of the administration.  There has not/ been planning ENUNCIATED in the plan or in the Budget.  Frequently, we come across the statement by the hon. Minister that the Railways have not been able to fulfill certain things. (400)
