    I agree with the views expressed in the previous comments. Khawaja Saad is a young , energetic and a hard-working individual who should be given time to improve the condition of Railways. If the Govt still requires some immediate financial return,one can think of disposing some of the precious Golf Courses given on lease and some pieces of land near the raiway stations in big cities. However one can also think of handing over some of the branch line services to the private sector provided the Railway employees do not suffer any hardship.
