Plea to restore all Passenger Trains

Plea to restore all Passenger Trains

Erode district Congress minorities wing president J Suresh and vice 
president KN Batcha appealed to the Railway Minister to restore all passenger trains that were stopped during the Corona period. 
In a memorandum,  they said the following passenger trains were operated from last week: Salem-Vriddhachalam, Madurai-Rameswaram 
and a few trains from Kolkatta to Bangladesh which have been suspended due to corona. 

But, the passenger trains from Erode to Mettur departure at 5.00 am and the passenger train from Erode to Trichy at 7.40 am, Erode to Trichy at 4.30 pm, Erode-Nellai   at 1.00 pm, Erode-Palakkad at 7.40 am,  Coimbatore-Salem and Coimbatore-Nagercoil 
Express were not yet restored causing much hardship to the people as the bus fare was much high. 

The trains were stopped for over 2 years in the name of Corona epidemic. 
But, now,  the epidemic was under control.
Therefore, the Railway Administration should take appropriate action immediately to help people. 
Lest, the party would start series of stirs in front of Erode Railway Station, they added.
