The government of India moving fast towards privatisation of Indian Railways. Already it has decided to hand many Railway Stations to the private and tenders are being called for. Chennai and Kozhikode are two of these important stations. Tenders are being called for this PPP (Public Private Participation), which is nothing but handing aver the railway stations to private companies at very low rates for looting the public and garnering profit.
A Rail Development Authority (RDA) is also being appointed to streamline this operation.It is to be remembered that the same method was used in the telecom sector to allow entry for the private operators and and to favour them.
History is being repeated. The only way to stop these anti-people policies are militant struggles jointly by the workers and the people.
