Despite heavy rain, a massive dharna was organised at the Kozhikode Railway Station premises today, 22nd May 2017, against the move of the government to privatise the Kozhikode Railway Station. The dharna organised under the ‘Committee Against Railway Privatisation’ was inaugurated by Com.V.A.N.Namboodiri, senior TU leader and Founder General Secretary of BSNLEU. He attacked the privatisation policy of the government and the need to unitedly fight against the same. The experience in BSNL was shared. Railway privatisation will benefit the corporates only by utilisation of the railway land for building malls, hotels etc. The dharna was presided over by CITU District Secretary Com. P.K.Mukundan, who is also the Chairman of the Reception Committee. Leaders of INTUC, AITUC, CITU and other service organisations spoke and expressed their solidarity and support to the struggle.
