Source: Die Linke “For every minister in the federal government, the duty of care for the population must come first, far above their own interests. This lordly understanding in the Ministry of the Interior is exactly what repels the people ”, explains Jan Korte, 1st Parliamentary Managing Director of the DIE LINKE parliamentary group, in response to the Federal Ministry of the Interior’s request to the railway to guarantee ministry employees a second, free seat with a separate arrangement. Korte continues: “Anyone who tolerates for years that families with children stand in the aisles of overcrowded trains at rush hour, but now demands extra regulations for their own people, is completely lifted and has nothing to do with everyday life and the reality of the population. It would be better now to ensure that the railway, with sufficient wagons and a tight schedule, guarantees safe mobility for everyone, not just for ministry employees, even in times of crisis. The federally owned railway must orient itself again towards the common good, not towards profit. The course should now be set for this, for example with a plan for transforming the railway into a company under public law. “
