    OMG….so Sheikh Rashid turned Railway in to Green?

    • Railways is still far from being in the green but indicators have been quite positive under Rasheed’s ministry. He has been very proactive. Best time to evaluate his performance would 2-2.5 years from now.

  • Lets give major credit to Saad Rafique, Shiekh shb is also doing great!

    Never in my wildest dreams did I think this ‘sheeda’ would turn out to be a good minister. Though I have doubts that Khwaja Saad Rafique might have some impact on the railways. If this profit grows then, perhaps ‘sheeda’ would be right to get the benefit.

    Cosmetic exercise just like Lalu Prasad’s railways turnaround tale.

    we are very greatful regarding the services Mr.Khawaja Sb rendered for uplifting PR But he didnt invest on human development(Employees). No organization can be in win win position unless invested on his human capital. We know that Sheikh Sb is very much capable and determined and also kind hearted he will surely think on this
