Ashwani Lohani to assume charge of Railway Board chairman today

Air India's Chairman and Managing Director Ashwani Lohani was granted the additional charge of heading the Railway Board after its incumbent chairperson Ashok Mittal resigned earlier on Wednesday.

The head of India's railways has quit after a series of deadly accidents on the crumbling network, an official said Wednesday. "Either prime minister should sack the minister or he should accept his resignation", Congress' chief spokesperson Randeep Surjewala told reporters.

"I met with Modi taking full moral responsibility and the PM has asked me to wait", Prabhu wrote on his twitter page. In 1980, Prime Minister Indira Gandhi signed an order to sack the entire Railway Board for non-performance.

Around 100 passengers were injured as ten bogies of the Kaifiyat Express derailed in the Auraiya district of Uttar Pradesh early today, four days after 13 coaches of the Utkal Express went off the rails near Khatauli in UP, killing 22 people and injuring 156.

About 70 passengers were injured in this accident.

The new Railway Board Chairman, Ashwani Lohani has previously served as DRM in Delhi Division. "Hon'ble PM has asked me to wait". He successfully piloted the nomination of the Darjeeling Himalayan Railway as a UNESCO world heritage site. It was because of his initiatives that the Fairy Queen, the world's oldest steam engine, was run on Indian tracks, setting the Guinness world record in 1998. Suresh Prabhu has ordered a probe into the derailment case and had said that no laxity would be allowed by the board.

Brendan Deenihan said Sunday police believe Lathem himself made the phone call. "It has nothing to do with this, though". Lathem, a well published microbiologist, began teaching at Northwestern University in north suburban Evanston in 2007.

Sources said that Prabhu was not happy with Mittal and had been pushing for Mittal's removal for past few days. With the two year extension, Mital was to remain in the office till July 2018.

Senior railway officials said Mital was not happy that senior officials of the ministry had to face the brunt of the outfall of the Utkal Express derailment.

General Manager, Northern Railway, R.N. Kulshrestha, and Divisional Railway Manager, Delhi, R.N. Singh were also sent on leave.
