Kochi: Kerala Opposition leader VD Satheesan on Friday reiterated his dissent to the SilverLine project semi high-speed rail project being planned by the Kerala Government again. Satheesan said that the project is only for the elite class, not for the poor people of the state.

He further said that there are some shocking details in the DPR regarding the economic viability of the SilverLine project.

"They had put a proposal not to expand the national highways. If the national highway is expanded, then the income will be lesser. And the another project is that, if you are not increasing the fair of third class and second class ACs, then you won't get passengers to the SilverLine project. That is why the govt is trying to hide the DPR so far," he said.
