 Former Air India chief Ashwani Lohani on Thursday took the charge as Chairman Railway Board and said his main thrust would be to put an end to corruption and VIP culture.

Lohani told mediapersons that it was an emotional moment for him to join back the railways as its CRB.  He said safety would be his top priority and measures would be taken to make railways more safe. 
 
"Stations would be made to look good and impeccable cleanliness would be ensured," he said. 
 
Lohani is considered one of the most dynamic officers of the railways. He had earlier helped turn around ITDC.
 
Lohani got to work immediately after taking charge. He is slated to chair meetings with railway board members and top officials.
