  • Principle no-1 Catch the bull by the horn

  • My mother always told me not to handle a buffalo by its tail, but always catch it by its horns. And I have used that lesson in everything in my life, including the Railways." –Lalu Prasad Yadav

  • When some Board members expressed apprehensions in increasing wagon loads, a decision which alone generated Rs 7,200 crore (Rs 72 billion), Prasad said: "Wagon is the bread-earning horse of the Railways. Load it adequately. Make it run and don't stable it."

  • Direct Action: To build alignment for execution, the MR(Ministry of Railway) communicated to the GMs, setting and reinforcing priorities. For example, on March 27, 2006, a letter urged a freight loading target of 800 mt and internal generation (fund balance) of Rs 20,000 crore.

  • A letter was sent to the GMs which included sharp actionable statements in the areas of freight, passenger, and parcel and catering.
