Previously the petitioners had accused rail
officials of being influenced under by the bus lobby. Meanwhile in their
petition, the train users said, “Private bus operators run about 600 buses on
weekends and hence the rush is even more during the festive season. Moreover during
festival seasons and long weekends, bus fares between the two cities were
increased to a staggering Rs 4,000 per head. Further the Railway Board was
yet to make a decision and neither Southern Division nor South Western Division
of Railways could independently start the train.
