A large num­ber of NRMU


mem­bers par­tic­i­pated in the rally in protest against the an­ti­labour poli­cies of the rail­way min­istry.

Di­vi­sional sec­re­tary of the union Daljit Singh said the rail­ways in­stead of cut­ting 5% salary of the em­ploy­ees should stop the trains that were run­ning into losses and in­crease the rail fair.

The train fares in com­par­i­son to the buses are still very nom­i­nal and cheap. They also raised their voice against the 17 com­mit­tees made for the rail­ways. He added that they would or­gan­ise a mas­sive rally at the lo­cal rail­way sta­tion on May 1 i.e. Labour Day to put for­ward their de­mands.
