PALAKKAD: The joint organisation of trade unions of Southern Railway will organise a `human chain' at the Shoranur railway station on Tuesday in protest against the privatisation of major works in the Railways.

In a statement here on Saturday, the trade unions said the Railways had privatised many key sectors such as track maintenance, parcel service, box boy, running bungalow and bed roll.

The `human chain' programme will be inaugurated by K. Chandran Pillai, MP.
