Thiruvananthapuram: The Kerala government is unable to go ahead with the SilverLine semi high-speed rail project due to lack of the nod from the union government, said CPM state secretary MV Govindan. He added that Malayalis are facing trouble in travel due to inadequate facilities.

"K-Rail, a joint venture of the state and union governments, was constituted to develop the rail system in the state. But lack of clearance from the union government is delaying the SilverLine project. Though the union government and Railways have been giving many promises, nothing is being realised,” he said in a statement.

Malayalis who travel to nearby states for work are facing issues due to lack of infrastructure. Railways’ new projects are not useful for the state.

Though the Railways is charging a huge amount of money from customers, Kerala is not getting any benefit from it, Govindan alleged.
