On Wednesday, Railway Minister Piyush Goyal  claimed lesser number of trains were running late as compared to flights due to fog.

"Due to our constant efforts, less trains were running in late in comparison to flight during fogs," he said while speaking in Lok Sabha, adding that constant efforts towards computerisation of the signalling system were helping the Railway Ministry in achieving the goal.

Speaking further on the focus of railways, Mr Goyal insisted the railways have given highest priority on safety and highlighted the public transporter's focus on computerisation of the signalling system, which continues to run through the old system started before independence, according to news agency PTI.
