Dear Comrades,
AILRSA has conducted 36 hours Hunger fast in front of Divisional Railway Manager’s office through out the country. At many locations different trade unions supported this agitation. Many Divisions train service were dislocated due to severe causality. As a result small spark has came in the form of instruction from our Honarable Railway Minister Sri Lalu Prasad Yadav, who asked Sri KC Jena, Chairman Railway Board as follows

Reduction in fares
Mr. Prasad, however, ruled out lowering passenger fares in the wake of a reduction in fares by air operators and cut in diesel prices. “They had hiked the prices in the first place. We did not hike the fares when the price of diesel was raised.”
He asked the Railway Board chairman K.C. Jena at the farewell function of seven railways staff to redress the grievance of the assistant loco pilots who struck work on Tuesday protesting against the recommendation of the Sixth Pay commission.
The Railway Minister was categorical that their grades must be restored with commensurate pay scales as these personnel were performing a vital job.

We should develop this spark to a mighty FIRE to destroy all the obstructions before us. Don’t keep any illusion that your demands are redressed. It is only IDENTIFIED by our Minister Sri Lalu due to the train detention during our Hunger fast on 29th and 30th in different parts of the country. So let us not being carried away by this, since the past history of Railway Bureaucracy is not so attractive in honouring the Judicial/ Political commitments and decisions.
So please continue our campaign rigorously to make the Rail Bhavan March on Feb 6 a grant success.
