Kharge on visit to Guwahati

AICC leader Mallikarjun Kharge is on a visit to Guwahati  on Monday to lead a protest over the move to hike the train fares.

According to AICC sources, Kharge who was the railway minister in the UPA government would take on the Modi government for the proposed hike in the passenger and freight rates.

Notably, initially the Modi government proposed to hike the rail fares citing a pending proposal during the UPA government. But Kharge made it plain that the entire proposal was left to the next government.
