Thiruvananthapuram: Kerala on Saturday resented
realisation of 10 per cent surcharge from pilgrims taking
train tickets from the special counter opened for Sabarimala
pilgrims at the base camp Pampa.
In a fax message to Union Minister of state for Railway,
E Ahamed, Kerala`s Public Works Minister M Vijayakumar said
there was no justification for imposing such a surcharge on
the pilgrims since the ticket counter was set up at a space
provided free-of-rent by the Trvancore Degvaswom Board.
