LAHORE – Railways workers on Monday staged a protest demonstration at Divisional Superintendent office in favour of their demands and asked the govt to redress their grievances otherwise they would block the train operations all over the country.

The workers were protesting under the banner of Rail Mazdor Ittehad, an alliance of different railways’ union. The protesting employees also locked the DS offices for some hours to record their protest. They set tyres on fire outside the office and chanted anti-privatisation slogans. The leaders of Ittehad said if the Railway authorities would not clear the dues of the employees, they would not allow running the trains from any railway station.
