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.
