Amaravati: Union Railway Minister Ashwini Vaishnav has revealed that there is no cooperation from the state government regarding the Sabarimala railway project in Kerala, but two alternative routes are being considered for laying a railway track to Sabarimala. Referring to some aspects of the Sabarimala railway project during the question and answer session in the Lok Sabha on Wednesday, the Union Minister said that no progress has been made in the project since many years.
