Railways will be privatized, the Railway Minister answered this question
New Delhi: Many discussions on privatization of railways have been going on for the last few days. However, Railway Minister Piyush Hoyal himself clarified the picture in a better way, stating that the railways are India’s property and will not be privatized.
He also underlined that investing in the private sector would be beneficial in terms of providing better services to passengers and strengthening the economy through railways. Stressing on the discussion in the Lok Sabha on the subsidy demands under the Ministry of Railways for the year 2021-22, Goyal said, “Unfortunately, the situation is such that many leaders are accusing the railways of privatization. Indian Railways will never be privatized. This is the wealth of India. I assure you. ‘
What did Goyal say about private railways?
Private RailwaysSpeaking on the occasion, Goyal set an example of road transport. The government has also built roads. However, this is not to say that only government vehicles will come and go on it. They progress only when all kinds of vehicles come on the road and only then everyone gets convenience. So shouldn’t this happen in railways? Shouldn’t passengers get better facilities? ‘

Goyal questioned whether this should not be considered in view of freight railways and their investment in the private sector. If modern day railways are to be expected, financial support is also required. Therefore, if the issue of private investment comes up, it will only benefit the travelers and the country. The facilities that will be available from the private sector will be available only to Indian citizens. He said that they will get employment opportunities, boost the economy of the country, adding that only when the Center and the private sector work together will they be able to contribute to the bright future of the country.
