Thiruvananthapuram : Prathidhwani - a socio cultural and welfare organization of IT Employees are planning to conduct a rally and demonstration demanding more number of trains to halt at Kazhakootam railway station. The rally will start from Technopark Main gate at 4 pm and reach the destination of Kazhakootam railway station, an hour later.
The techies decided to take this forward as very few trains halt at Kazhakoottam. People otherwise have to get down at Thampanoor (17 km) or Pettah (12 km). According to many employees, a halt for the Jayanthi train (train number 16381) at Kazhakootam during the mornings will be helpful. At present, no trains via Alapuzha stop at Kazhakoottam. MPs, MLA, Mayor and social activists will be addressing the crowd on Friday evening at the rally.
