Privatisation has “jeopardised” railways and “endangered” safety of passengers across the world, All India Railwaymens Federation on Tuesday claimed and threatened an indefinite strike if the Centre goes ahead with “plans of selling the sector”.

“We are meeting the committee (formed by the government to look into the privatisation issue) tomorrow in Delhi. We will try our level best to negotiate on the issue and convince the government of India that they should not go ahead with the plan of the privatisation.

“But if they do not agree for any settlement with our federation, then definitely, we will ask all our colleagues, associations, unions and federations of the railways and jointly we will go on an indefinite strike,” general secretary of All India Railwaymens Federation, Shiva Gopal Mishra, told reporters on the sidelines of a function here.
