Avoiding PM’s order not good

NEW DELHI (IANS): On Tuesday Mukul Roy a Trinamool Congress MP has been relieved as minister of state for railways, a day after he ignored Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s directive to visit a train derailment site in Assam.

The Trinamool Congress leader, however, retains his job as the junior minister in the shipping ministry.

The move comes a day after Roy openly defied Manmohan Singh’s directive to visit the site of the blast in Assam that derailed a passenger train, leaving at least 100 people injured.

On Monday the prime minister also pulled up Roy for not taking charge of the rescue work after the Sunday Kalka Mail accident in Uttar Pradesh.
