Kannur: Passengers are unhappy with the decision of the Southern Railway to revise the price of Uzhunnu Vada and Pazham Pori (Ethakka Appam) sold through railway stalls and platforms. Their dissatisfaction has been reflected in the sudden slump in the sale of Uzhunnu Vada and Pazham Pori.

As a result, vendors are selling Kerala's traditional snacks at old prices to lure passengers. Last February, Southern Railway raised the price of 60 food items, including meals sold through their outlets. The cost of Pazham Pori increased from Rs 13 to Rs 20 per piece, and a pair of two Uzhunna Vada from Rs 17 to Rs 25.

Due to the revised rate, the passengers opted for other cheaper alternatives. To avoid this, the railway vendors often sell Uzhunnu Vada and Pazham Pori for as low as Rs 10.

Meanwhile, Samosa, sold in pairs, was increased from Rs 17 to Rs 25.
