He further added that the Ministry for Railways would be approaching the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) to investigate into corruption in Railways.
Sheikh Rasheed said that he would not be tolerating trespassing on the land of railways and would be doing everything possible to reclaim the land from the encroachers.

He said that he expects Railways to become an earning institution in the span of sixty days. He added that they at least need a year for re-developing the organization.
He also informed that he would continue working with the present administration of Railways for the first hundred days. He added that the ones who have no wishes of working with him would be sent home.
It is notable that the Ministry of Railways is going to extra lengths for getting the system back on track by introducing new strategies for its revival for making it able enough to contribute to the national exchequer instead of using a large share of it annually.
