Surge Pricing in Railways is Anti People explains CPI

12 Sep 2016
Arvind Raj Swarup , Assistant Secretary of  CPI  (Uttar Pradesh) is shocked at the surge pricing policy introduced recently by the Indian Railways under the Modi government. In an interview with Rukmini Sen of Hillele.org,  Arvind Raj Swarup said surge pricing in Indian Railways is an anti poor and anti middle class move



Railways is public transport. It is not meant to be a commercial venture as the present government is trying to tell people. Railways needs to be affordable for the people who travel by train- said Arvind Raj Swarup.

The decision will force passengers to pay at least 50% more than the basic tickets rates.
