THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The stand of the railway ministry against withdrawing the increased train fare hike introduced in the Rajadhani, Shatabdhi and Duronto trains at the busy time is a challenge to the public, said KPCC chief V M Sudheeran.
Long distance passengers are suffering the burden paying 50% high rate from the normal rate. The main victims of this decision are the Keralites staying in other parts of the country. This Tuglak style cannot be justified. Instead of arranging more trains during busy times, the passengers are being exploited and this act of the railways cannot be accepted at all. The people of the state will stand unitedly and protest against the anti-people policies of the railways, he said.
