No privatisation: Mamata

NEW DELHI, FEB. 26. The Railways would not be privatised, Ms. Mamata Banerjee told the Lok Sabha today while presenting the Railway Budget.

``We have already set in motion various reform measures and efforts are under way to generate resources through non- traditional sources,'' she said.

The Minister said, ``we feel that no reforms can be successful without the people's full involvement and I would like to assure the House that the Railways will not be privatised.''
