Kerala got what it deserved in the railway budget. There was no serious effort on the part of the authorities to prioritise our requirement and no concerted attempt to get things done. Everybody presents his own agenda and gets satisfied with the deceptive ‘surveys’ offered by Railways. Sadly the government and the elected representatives are not at all serious about railway development.
When the basic need of doubling and electrification of the railway lines in Kerala could not be ensured even after decades they are talking about high speed railway corridor and bullet trains. That is our fate.
