Vande Bharat, a massive failure, running empty even during peak season'; Congress comes with proof

vande-bharat

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The Congress unit in Kerala said that many Vande Bharat trains in the country are running empty. KPCC's official X handle said that high fares are being charged for many routes and due to this the number of passengers is decreasing. The Congress criticized pointing IRCTC booking data showing that 50 per cent of Vande Bharat trains in the country have only half of passengers.


This information is in general section excluding Tatkal bookings. Bookings in Vande Bharat are very less despite being holiday season. The Congress also pointed that only the rich can afford Vande Bharat tickets.

The Congress also criticized pointing to the waiting list in other trains. In a video released by Congress in X handle, it said that even though many seats on Vande Bharat are vacant, the waiting list for other trains is very long.


While Garib Rath trains offer tickets at Rs 770, Vande Bharat's ticket at Rs 1720 is unaffordable for common people. Is Vande Bharat a practical option for an average traveler? Giving more importance to Vande Bharat is a big problem. Only when a large number of the public can bear the fare of Vande Bharat, it will be good for all. It is important for the country to achieve economic growth. The Congress alleged that the central government is a failure in this regard.
