Agartala, June 20 (TIWN): CPI (M) today raised strong opposition to the decision to hike rail fare across the country by 14.20 percent and said that the decision initiated by BJP government ahead of the
Parliament has shown the real face of ‘acche din’. The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and its Prime Minister Narendra Modi claimed that the saffron camp would offer the country good days ahead
if elected to power against the Congress led UPA alliance.

In a sharp contrast to their assurances, the BJP led NDA government had assured good days ahead while campaigning across the country for Lok Sabha election. Prices of onion have soared higher by Rs. 10 in less than three weeks. Potatoes and different daily necessities have become dearer. The rail fare hike now has shown only a worse possibility, Tripura CPI (M) spokesperson Gautam Das said here today.
Asked about his take on the 14.20 percent rail fare hike enforced from Friday, CPI (M) spokesperson Gautam Das said that the works of Modi Sarkar in the first few weeks have shown the model of ‘acche din’waiting for the nation ahead.
He added that fare hike by 14.2 percent in Indian Railways and 6.5 percent hike in freight charges will only add to the woes of the people. “This is apprehended to impact common people and supply of agricultural inputs which will have a cascading effect on the price of goods”, Das added.
All India Krishak Sabha (AIKS), today centrally opposed the fare hike decision and said that the decision was a betrayal with the people of the nation. AIKS All India secretary Hannan Mollah stated in a press communiqué today that the decision to hike train fares showed the real face of BJP. The party frontal wing demanded complete rollback.
