Lok Sabha MP Su. Thirunavukkarasar has strongly condemned the railway administration's announcement that the Tiruchi - Rameswaram - Tiruchi specials would not halt at Keeranur railway station.

In a statement issued on Sunday, Mr. Thirunavukkarasar said Keeranur was a town panchayat and a taluk headquarters and people from over 100 villages were coming to this town and leaving everyday. The railway administration should bear in mind that the rail services were being operated for the benefit of the general public and should pass necessary orders to provide stoppage at Keeranur as before, Mr. Thirunavukkarasar said, adding that he had already made appeals to the Railway Ministry, Chairman, Railway Board and Southern Railway General Manager in this regard.
