In a letter to Andreas Scheuer (CSU), members of the Greens accuse the Transport Minister of inaction on matters relating to the railways.

"Spiegel" reports in its new issue. Last year, Scheuer announced a discussion process on the future of the railways “without thinking bans”.

They took the announcement "seriously", explain the Green MPs and made specific suggestions. But for Scheuer the announced reform discussion was "no longer an issue". "To this day you have not submitted a single proposal and refused to work on it," says the letter signed by parliamentary group leader Anton Hofreiter, the parliamentary group's rail expert Matthias Gastel, and budget spokesman Sven-Christian Kindler. It is the wrong approach to inject more money "haphazardly" and at the same time impose "severe austerity constraints" on the company. The Greens renew their call for a second rail reform. "So that the rail reform does not become another hollow promise from you, we urge you to sketch out a dialogue process as quickly as possible," they write Scheuer. The government and the opposition would have to jointly “lead the railway through the crisis”.
