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.
