Delhi:
Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Thursday said the government
will consider replacing railway minister Dinesh Trivedi if the situation
demands.




"Well, if anything like this develops, we will consider it," Manmohan
Singh told reporters in Parliament when asked whether he would consider
replacing Trivedi following demands by Trinamool Congress leader Mamata
Banerjee to remove him for hiking rail fare.




Trivedi's maiden Rail Budget on Wednesday proposed a fare hike after 10
years.




Angry with the hike, his party chief Banerjee urged the prime minister on
Wednesday night to replace Trivedi with another party leader, Mukul Roy.
