Honb’le Minister for Railways

Rail Bhavan , New Delhi 

Dear Sir,

Kerala Samajam (R ) Bangalore is the first and foremost organization of Keralites living in Bangalore which was established in 1940. As a premier organization, we represent 12 Lakhs Keralites living in Bangalore. 

As their representatives, we would like to bring to your notice the unfortunate decision of shifting the originating station of the ONLY train which is commuting to Kannur ,(Train no . 16527/ 16528 Yeswanthpura –Kannur –Yeswanthpura Exp )  to Banaswadi from 4th February 2019 .

This train was originating from Yeswanthapura for the last 17 years, which was convenient to commuters of Kozhikode, Kannur, Palakkad, Wayand, and Kasargod districts who are residing at various parts of Bengaluru and who are traveling frequently to their home cities. 

To these people, reaching Banasawadi Railway Station is a nightmare as there are no proper transportation facilities  to this station. Hence we humbly request you to kindly restore the originating station as Yeswanthpura and support the lakhs  of commuters of northern Kerala . 

Please note that already 3 trains commuting towards South Kerala are moved to Banasawadi . We are co-operating with this move as these trains pass through Krishnarajaapuram, which is having reasonable accessibility with public transport and roads. But the decision to move Yeswanthapura- Kannur express from Yeswanthpura to Banaswadi is affecting travellers  very badly. 

We request you guide the Railways to restore the originating station as Yeswanthpura for this train. Your immediate intervention to get a favorable decision in this regard would be  highly appreciated by lakhs of Keralites living in Bangalore. 

Thanking You

For Kerala Samajam (R ) Bangalore
