Only 3 percent train fares have been increased
Indian Railways said that fares have been increased for only 3 per cent of the total trains. This increase in fares will hit passengers traveling up to 30-40 km every day. Let us know that former President of Congress Rahul Gandhi has targeted the Central Government for this increase in fare from the railways on a short distance journey. He tweeted that Kovid-19 disaster is yours, opportunity government’s, petrol-diesel-gas-train fare. The middle class was badly trapped, loot broke the jumla of jumlas! When Rahul Gandhi tweeted two days ago, the Railways had declared it factually incorrect.
