Fare hike has to be withdrawn: MamataMarch 14th, 2012 - 7:25 pm ICT by IANS
Kolkata, March 14 (IANS) Stating that her Trinamool Congress had not been informed about the rail fare hike, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee Wednesday sought a rollback of the tariffs announced by her party’s man, Railway Minister Dinesh Trivedi.
“We (read I) had the portfolio of railways. At that time we had done several developmental works. Today the rail fare has been increased we were not aware of it. Our parliamentary party has already opposed it,” Banerjee said in Nandigram.
“We will not accept the fire hike. We will not allow the fire hike to happen for the sake of the common man… We are totally against it. I can assure you this,” Banerjee said.
