Gowda said that as soon as the Railway Budget is presented, it will be available on the application, Twitter account, Facebook.

New Delhi: Railway Minister DV Sadananda Gowda on Monday launched a new social media application for the ministry.

Gowda said that as soon as the Railway Budget is presented in Parliament on June 8, it will be available on the application and also on Twitter account and Facebook.

He said the initiative will give a new boost to the Ministry in reaching out to the people.

Besides, the national transporter will also have its presence on YouTube.

From Tuesday onwards, one can see the all information on the social networking site, he said.

Gowda said it was Prime Minister Narendra Modi's idea that each and every person should be IT-enabled.

Focusing on IT initiatives, Railways will also launch a new number -- 022-4501555 -- on Tuesday where people can dial in and hear the Budget.

Besides railways enquiry number -- 139 -- will also become toll free soon and all these are slated to be announced in the Rail Budget.

Asked whether the NDA's maiden Rail Budget will be pro-people, Gowda said, "Which ever government whether BJP, Congress or Communist, it has to be a pro-people budget."
