Earlier, chairing the meeting on the restructuring of Pakistan Railways, Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani has directed the Ministry of Railways to restructure Pakistan Railways on modern and commercial lines to make it a viable financial entity. He said the root causes of operational inefficiency could be addressed through improvement in the railway tracks and passengers service and enhancement of goods transportation. The Prime Minister stressed upon the need of changing mindset of the Ministry of Railways and its officials to enhance operative efficiency through good governance and make it a profit earning entity. He asked the Minister for Railways and the Finance Minister to work out a long-term approach to improve operative efficiency and financial viability. The Prime Minster, in his opening remarks, has observed that in the 21st century, Pakistan needed a cheap, efficient, reliable and secure mode of communication for million of passengers and movement of goods and that could only be provided through railways. He urged Pakistan Railways to reclaim its old glory to become a preferred mean of travelling for the common man. To achieve this goal, he added, Pakistan Railways must under go a total transformation. He observed that Pakistan Railways needed infrastructure and rolling stocks that were modern, faster, safer and reliable, however, at the same time Pakistan Railways being a public service utility should adopt service delivery and customer satisfaction as its guiding motto. The Prime Minister has said the Ministry of Railways is one of the most important ministries of the Federal Government and Pakistan Railways is a historical asset as well as a strategic entity, which played an important role in socio-economic development of the country. He observed that it provided the much needed communication lines for transportation of people and goods across the country. He assured that the Government would, however, like to do as much as it could to revive Pakistan Railways yet Pakistan Railways should first put up a genuinely self-help effort and display improvement in performance to qualify for the financial assistance from the Government. The Prime Minister urged the Cabinet Committee on Restructuring to finalise the restructuring proposals and place them before the Cabinet at the earliest. He instructed that the restructuring proposals should have a clear and doable roadmap with measurable targets and performance benchmarks. He directed the Ministry that the Pakistan Railways should put its house in order and begin work on management and bring operational efficiency by utilising the resources available in the organisation. He also instructed that Pakistan Railways must focus on reducing operating costs while introducing innovations to increase internal earnings. At the same time, he added, it must also focus on better management and utilisation of assets to fund operational capacities. Federal Minister for Railways, Haji Ghulam Ahmed Bilour apprised the Prime Minister of the steps taken to implement the Cabinets decisions. He also mentioned that due to shortage of locomotive, Pakistan Railways was facing serious problems and difficulties.
