On Thursday the BPJ led NDA Goverment proposed their first railway budget but the congress led Kerala government termed railway budget as ‘disappointing’ and ‘hopeless’, saying it offered nothing to meet the state’s long-pending demands.

"The budget would check the pace of Indian Railway as there were no new trains and projects" Kerla Chief Minister Oomen Chandy said.

“Though Kerala had many hopes regarding the budget, it was very disappointing. The state got relief only in doubling of lines but enough funds have not been provided for electrification and signalling,”, he added.

Though relief was expected in fares, the budget proposed a hike in freight charges, he said.

Opposition leader of Kerala and CPI(M) veteran leader V S Achuthanandan also critisized center goverment and said the budget totally neglected Kerala than the previous one and it was "Condemnable" and dissapointing".
