The proposals for privatisation, PPP and FDI in Railways, presented in the Railway budget by Railways Minister Sadananda Gowda have been strongly opposed by AIRF Secretary General, Com. Shiv Gopal Mishra.
In his hard-hitting statement, he stated that the railway Workers will not tolerate any privatisation in the railways. He also stated that there is no relief to the 24 hours, 365 days hard working railways employees in the budget. There is no proposal to increase the workforce which is immediately required.
CITU has already strongly criticised the Railway Budget on similar lines.
