THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: M A Wahid MLA has urged railway officials to end the apathy shown towards the Kazhakkoottam Railway Station. He said speedy development of the station should be carried out and urged railway officials to allow stops for more trains at Kazhakkoottam.

The MLA was addressing a mass sit-in organised by the Kazhakkoottam Railway Development Action Council. Wahid said that the railway’s sluggish approach to allowing more stops at Kazhakkoottam and to the development of the station cannot be tolerated anymore.

 Action council general convener John Vinetius said it was common sight to see women and children struggling to board trains at Kazhakkoottam. Train travel from Kazhakkoottam has become a risky business.

 The Southern Railway General Manager and the Divisional Railway Manager, Thiruvananthapuram, have been apprised of the issues, and there is no justification for the delay on their part, he said. The action council will be forced to step up agitations if this situation prevails, he said.
