Gurjar also said that the Kota-Vadodara local passenger train has no halt at Bedavanya station.

Hundreds of passengers travel daily from this station to Nagda-Kota and Kota to Vadodara, those passengers are deprived of travelling due to no stoppage of this train at Bedavanya railway station. These passengers are being forced to take expensive travel by road.

He said that in the name of pandemic, local passengers are being asked to over three times the normal fare. Even after paying escalated fair there are no halts for many trains. Many trains are providing only one way ticket. Gurjar has demanded that anti-people reservation policy be scrapped at the earliest, fares to be restored to normal and a halt be provided for trains at Bedavanya railway station.
