Indian Railway / bangalore - kerala trains, influence of bus mafia

1 India Review updated:

Either NO trains or NO stops!!!.
This is the real situation/issue of all the passengers who wants to travel from Kerala to Bangalore or vice versa especially on all Fridays and Sundays.

Let’s take a Friday as an example, train number 6315 Kochuveli Express will start from Bangalore City at 17:15 Hrs. Unfortunately now (Previously Yes) this train is not having any stops before Salem. No stops at Bangalore Cantonment, Bangalore East, Krishnarajapuram. (KR Puram)…

However, the train which runs on previous day (Thu) 2684 Bangalore – Ernakulam SF Express, in the same route, at same schedule is having stops at Cantonment and KR Puram.. Why…? Who will get benefited…Don’t ask such foolish questions…All the malayalees other than bus owners!

The moral story: Super fast train will stop at Cant and KR Puram but a normal express train will not stop…Why…because it’s a Friday…!
Kerala Bus Mafia Key Jai…
Kerala Bus Association Key Jai…
All Kerala MPs Key Jai… (Guess why)

Do you have any idea about the total number of passengers who are traveling from Bangalore to Kerala on Friday? Also, think about the total number of private buses operating in the same route. Where I will get the exact information about this?

There are more stories too…Once upon a time there was a train called Kannur – Yesvantpur Express used to stop at Banasawadi…..but …

    Heard the buslobby is smart enough to block all the railway tickets to kerala. The moment you see it is waitlisted, you may go for bus tickets. That is what they want. The bus mafia cancels all those tickets on the day before the travel..They lose 20bucks per ticket but will get 800 bucks business :))

    Sad part is that we have a junior railway minister from Kerala now, and he has partnership or interest in a private bus service which operates between bangalore and calicut. I am talking about E Ahmed and the Al hind travels.
    As long as there is no visible protest against this situation this will continue. Ideally some political party needs to take this up and bring into the notice of people who are in power.

    Is LDF/UDF hearing?????

    Its all the game played by the buslobby's. And our Honorable Ministers can’t do anything . Because either they are partners in this business or bribed by the Bus lobby's.
    YPR-KCVL GR (2257) will be only on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Sundays.
    And KCVL - YPR GR(2258) are on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
    Who will prefer to catch these trains on those days . More over this train wont come to Bangalore Central also .

    Once again

    oru kadum kai undu...Mananthavadi vazhi kozhikotteku ulla Route block cheyyuka (Engane cheyyum ennu ariyilla). This can make a spark. At that time we can fight for either trains or opening the route thru Sulthan bathery (rathri yathra nirodhanam)...
