It is indeed nice that Central President Indian Railways Technical Supervisors Association also participated in the meeting as a mark of solidarity. I also read another report of All India Loco Running Staff Association holding similar protest meeting. Prior to that there have been many reports of various Railway manufacturing units and other staff holding prolonged protest actions. When will all railwaymen and women carry out united actions ? That day will be a death nail in the privatisation programme launched by government of India. All the working people of our country are eagerly waiting for that day !
