NEW DELHI, Sept. 6 (Xinhua) -- The Indian government has offered jobs to those who provide information on possible attempts to sabotage movement of trains, according to local media reports on Monday.

"If you can catch people involved in sabotage, inform us. We will immediately provide jobs to you," Indian Railway Minister Mamata Banerjee was quoted as saying on Sunday in the eastern city of Kolkata.

The minister also warned that strict action would be taken in case somebody was found involved in an act of sabotage.

"Political parties may ask you to do wrong things. Don't do anything of that kind even if they tell you to do so. Remember, politicians will come and go but the railways will continue to exist as an institution," she said.

At least 150 people were killed in May when a train was derailed in the eastern state of West Bengal before being hit by a cargo train.
