In a meeting at Varanasi, yesterday, 25th December, Prime Minister Narendra Modi assured the railway workers that there will be no privatisation of Railways, but private investment will brought for improving and expanding the same.
No Privatisation is OK. It is the demand of the 13 lakhs of railway employees, who have strongly opposed the move and are preparing for a serious struggle against the same.
But the private investment in the railways and PPP is part of the game of the government to gradually hand over this important sector to the private companies. The workers have to be warned about the same.
