HYDERABAD, FEB. 26. Members of the South Central Railway Employees Sangh held a demonstration here on Tuesday as part of `All India Mobilistion Day', protesting against the ``adverse'' recommendations of the Rakesh Mohan Committee Report.
The president of the sangh, S. Muthukrishnan, addressing the gathering, said that Railway employees must be prepared to wage a long battle to protect their rights.
The general secretary of the National Federation of Railwaymen, M. Raghavaiah, criticised the Central Government's alleged callousness towards their pending demands. Corporatisation or privatisation of the Railways would be opposed and the Government must implement the suggestions of the NFIR to run Railways as a viable and effective transport infrastructure, he added.
The Joint Consultative Machinery was not functioning effectively due to the apathy of officials resulting in accumulation of grievances, he said. He also criticised the recommendations of the Economic Committee.
