Train cleaning services to the private sector?

Cleaning of train compartments at the Maligawatte railway station is to be handed over to the private sector at a higher cost, the Railway union’s joint trade union front said.

According to its Secretary Sampath Rajitha, the cleaning services were carried out previously by the railway workers.

Having called for tenders for cleaning services the authorities have rejected a tender for Rs. Three million and granted the tender to a higher bidder for Rs. 9.3 million.
