After Surjewala's 'Tughlaki Farman' barb, Railways clarifies

New Delhi, Jul 3 (IANS): After Congress leader Randeep Singh Surjewala tried to take a dig at the Centre by tweeting a Railway Board notification on 'review on policy on creation of posts', the Indian Railways has clarified. It said that it will not surrender any safety category posts required for train operations & maintenance.

"Surrendering of non-functional, non-safety vacant posts would help in creating additional safety posts for new Railway Infrastructure Projects being developed at fast speed," it said.

The Railways added that modern technology has resulted in needs arising in many new areas, thereby reorientation and repositioning of resources is an imperative.

It cleared the air about recruitment stating, "All ongoing recruitment drives for various categories of posts will continue as usual. No net job reduction in railways."

Earlier in the day, the Congress leader targeted the Centre alleging, "This is the "Tughlaki Farman" of the Modi government.1. 50% of railway posts are over. 2. New recruitment closed. 3. All posts created in last 2 years are over. 4. No new post creation. It is possible if Modi is there."
