Thiruvananthapuram: Ministers E Chandrasekharan and K T Jaleel had to rush their way to the Cabinet meeting on Monday after their train got delayed for nearly three hours.

The Maveli Express, which usually arrives at Thiruvananthapuram Central at 7.05 AM, arrived only at 9.45 AM after the train was halted on its way.

Due to late arrival at the Cabinet meet, two agendas of the Minority department handled by Jaleel could only be presented towards the end of the meeting.

The Cabinet Meeting usually takes place on Wednesdays. However, this week’s meeting was preponed to Monday as the Chief Minister has to attend a CPM District Conference.
