"The government during the day raised the railway passenger fares by 14.2 percent in all classes and freight charge by 6.5 percent."
Kolkata, June 20 - Criticising the hike in railway passenger fares announced by the central government Friday, the Trinamool Congress said the step was taken without bothering about parliament and it would overburden the common man.

Is this a Super Rail Budget before Rail Budget? twitted Trinamool spokesperson Derek O'Brien.

Not bothering about Parl. The common man already burdened will be overburdened, O'Brien said.

The government during the day raised the railway passenger fares by 14.2 percent in all classes and freight charge by 6.5 percent.

The new passenger fare and freight rates will come into effect from June 25.
