Mamata meets PM, says NCTC anti-federal

West Bengal Chief Minister and TMC boss Mamata Banerjee declared today that she will not not allow any hike in railway fares proposed in the Railway Budget by her own nominee Dinesh Trivedi, the Railway Minister.

"We will not not allow rail fares to be hiked," she told a public meeting here, hours after Trivedi had proposed an across-the-board hike in passenger fares to raise Rs.4,000 crore extra this year.

Stating that she was not not aware of the move to raise the fares, Banerjee asserted, "I assure you we will not not accept this fare hike."

Asked about Banerjee's statement, Trivedi said, "I will try to convince her."
