Vadodara: A federation of railway workers today demanded filing up of two lakh vacancies in various divisions of Indian Railways for improving its performance.

"The federation has demanded filling up of two lakhs vacancies in the Indian railway for improving efficiency and performance," All India Railwaymen's Federation (AIRF) treasurer J R Bhosale told reporters here.

Bhosale, who was here for an event, said he was of the view that land owned by the public sector units should not be sold to private companies for commercial purpose.

Supporting the dedicated freight railway corridor project between Delhi and Mumbai, he said it would bring back the freight traffic that has gone to road transport operators and result in increased revenue for the railway.

He opined that bullet train project between Mumbai and Ahmedabad on Western Railway would create huge safety related problems on both sides of the railway track.
