He said according to information he received, the Colombo-Galle season ticket which was Rs. 2,700 had been increased to Rs. 3,400 from yesterday, which is an increase of around Rs. 700 and a 30% increase from the previous rate.
The JVP-MP noted that if the train fares have been increased by 15%, it should be enforced uniformly throughout the country.
Accordingly, he noted that the JVP could discuss the matter with the unions and take the required action within the next few days.
