Kejriwal demands roll back of ‘surge pricing’ in railways

New Delhi, Sep 8 (IANS) Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday opposed the “surge pricing” in Rajdhani, Shatabdi and Duronto express trains and demanded its roll back.

“AAP strongly opposes surge pricing in railways and demands that it should be rolled back,” Kejriwal tweeted.

“I am in Shatabdi right now. Spoke to several people. Everyone is against Modi government’s surge pricing,” the Chief Minister said in another tweet.

Kejriwal travelled by Shatabdi Express train to Ludhiana on Thursday.
