Suresh Prabhu cleared tracks, will continue to run on those: Piyush Goyal

"But I have seen Prabhu working like that 15 years ago".

He also said that he has got time to work under Prabhu.

The new minister said his predecessor was his mentor with whom he had worked on earlier occasions.

He was sworn-in as the Cabinet Minister for Railways on November 9, 2014 under the Narendra Modi government.

Both his parents have been associated with the BJP, with his father Late Vedprakash Goyal being the Union Minister of Shipping in the Atal Bihari Vajpayee.

However, immediately after the reshuffle, present railways minister Suresh Prabhu has hint at an exit.

By the numbers: Can Kohli top Tendulkar?
For that though, Sri Lanka will need to raise its game significantly, because India is not going to be complacent about this game. Hitting rock-bottom is one thing, but it appears Sri Lanka is somehow losing some matches in the consecutive numbers.

Later, Goyal held a meeting with the Railway Board Members. "Then P for Prabhu, my elder brother, taught me how to combine the three sectors - power, renewable energy and coal and move towards development at a fast pace", he said. With Piyush Goyal being a Mumbaikar, the citizens of the Maximum City, as well as the railway officials, are expecting better development of local trains here.

Speaking to journalists, Goyal said, "The focus of the Rail Ministry will continue to be safety and convenience of passengers".

"He (Goyal) will play a big role in the progress of the country".

"I am confident that he would contribute to the development of the nation", he said.

Suresh Prabhu will take over the Commerce Ministry after Nirmala Sitharaman was elevated to the cabinet as Defence Minister.

He had offered to step down after two train accidents in Uttar Pradesh last month, which were followed by two other derailments.
