It is reported that the Department of Railways is proposing to close 5 of its printing presses. These are the printing presses catering to the needs of Railways. Thousands of workers are employed in these presses and closure will result in loss of their jobs. This is one more move of Modi Government to destabilise the railways and allow corporates to grab railway sections one after another.
Confederation of Central Govt Employees and Workers have strongly protested and demanded not to close these printing presses.
