Railway Minister Piyush Goyal on Friday asserted that the national transporter has no plans to sell government assets and people will not lose jobs due to corporatisation, allaying fears among its production unit workers that the factories will be given to private parties.
The minister rather showed confidence within the railways producing units, which have produced state-of-the-art coaches like in Train 18 and are in the process of making Train 20, by indicating that the railways will invest in creating metro coaches and stock.
He told PTI in an interview that, we are not selling off government assets. Everybody’s jobs will be protected. Like we have IRCON, RITES – they are all corporatized government companies and amidst disquiet in its production units about the railway’s proposal to hive them off as one corporate entity.
